A&E explores another angle of the massacre in Jonestown, Guyana, on November 18, 1978, when 909 people took their own lives by drinking a lethal mix of Kool-Aid and cyanide.

Jonestown: The Women Behind the Massacre looks at the four women who stood behind cult leader Jim Jones as they led the nearly 1,000 members of the Peoples Temple, including 276 children, to their demise.

Jonestown premieres on A&E on Feb. 26.
