    Samantha Knight - Never Forgotten

    Samantha Knight - Never Forgotten

    In this episode, reporter Ross Coulthart remembers the chilling case of Samantha Knight, the angelic nine-year-old Bondi schoolgirl, who one day in 1986, vanished. Her disappearance led to one of the largest police investigations in New South Wales history but her body has still not been found. In 2001, the notorious paedophile Michael Guider was charged with Samantha's murder, and six months later pleaded guilty to manslaughter, claiming he hadn't meant to kill the little girl. He has never revealed where he put her body.
    What happened to Samantha remains her parents, indeed every parent’s, worst nightmare.
    The original 60 Minutes story: Samantha Knight –  Never Forgotten (2017), was reported by Ross Coulthart and produced by Garry McNab Podcast narrator: Peter Overton Podcast reporter: Ross Coulthart Podcast producers: Liz Little, Helen Lunn and Toula Udowenko Sound Engineering and Design:  Dan McHugh Executive Producer: Kirsty Thomson See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Catching A Monster

    Catching A Monster

    Australia’s worst paedophile spent four years on the run.
    Peter Scully thought by hiding out in a remote corner of the Philippines he was beyond the reach of the law. But Scully was wrong. In this episode, reporter Tara Brown recounts the chilling case as she tracked down and came face to face with our country’s most depraved predator. What he has to say for himself will leave you stunned.
    The original 60 Minutes story: Catching A Monster (2015), was reported by Tara Brown and produced by Rebecca Le Tourneau Podcast narrator: Peter Overton Podcast reporter: Tara Brown Podcast producers: Lydia Bilton, Liz Little, Helen Lunn and Toula Udowenko Sound Engineering and Design:  Joe Lee Executive Producer: Kirsty Thomson See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Gable Tostee - The Interview

    Gable Tostee - The Interview

    They both wanted uncomplicated, fast sex, and hooking up on the dating app Tinder was the perfect way to do it. But when Gable Tostee met Warriena Wright in 2014, their night of passion ended in death. That was horrific enough, but what drew further condemnation was Tostee’s apparent disregard for Warriena in the seconds, and minutes after her fatal fall. Tostee found himself charged with murder. What followed was one of the most divisive court cases in Australia’s recent history.  In 2016 Tostee was acquitted of the murder, largely because of the audio of Wright’s final moments…which oddly, Tostee had recorded on his smart phone. After the court ruling, Gable Tostee broke a two-year silence and sat down with reporter Liam Bartlett for an extraordinary interview.
    The original 60 Minutes story: Gable Tostee – The Interview (2016), was reported by Liam Bartlett and produced by Nick Greenaway and Grace Tobin Podcast narrator: Peter Overton Podcast reporter: Liam Bartlett Podcast producers: Lydia Bilton, Liz Little, Helen Lunn and Toula Udowenko Sound Engineering and Design: Joe Lee Executive Producer: Kirsty Thomson   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    The Whole Hoax

    The Whole Hoax

    It was the lie that rocked Australia. A young, beautiful woman is given the terrible news she has inoperable brain cancer and only four months to live. Belle Gibson is courageous - she tries chemotherapy and radiotherapy before turning to alternative medicine to battle the disease. Thankfully it seems to work and she tells the world through social media, encouraging others to try the same. It's a truly inspiring story. Hundreds of thousands of sympathetic followers and fellow sufferers live every step of her journey and celebrate her success as she becomes the poster girl for the alternative wellness industry. There's an award-winning app, and a cookbook. But it is all a lie. As Tara Brown reveals, Belle Gibson profited from the false hope she gave vulnerable people living with disease. And that is a true crime…
    The original 60 Minutes story: The Whole Hoax (2015), was reported by Tara Brown and produced by Stephen Taylor and Alice Dalley Podcast narrator: Peter Overton Podcast reporter: Tara Brown Podcast producers: Lydia Bilton, Liz Little, Helen Lunn and Toula Udowenko Sound Engineering and Design: Joe Lee Executive Producer: Kirsty Thomson See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Where Is Baby Tegan?

    Where Is Baby Tegan?

    It's a simple question with a diabolically difficult answer. Is Tegan Lane dead or alive? She was last seen as a two-day-old being carried out of a Sydney hospital by her mother Keli, an aspiring Australian Olympian. That was in 1996, but the mystery of what happened to baby Tegan after that has never been explained. In 2010 Keli was found guilty of murdering her then two-day old daughter, even though her body has never been found.  In 2016, six years later, in a last desperate bid to prove she is innocent, Keli’s parents Sandra and Robert, broke their 20-year silence and spoke to 60 Minutes. In this episode Allison Langdon discusses the mystifying case that gripped the nation.
    The original 60 Minutes story: Where Is Baby Tegan? (2016), was reported by Ally Langdon and produced by Rebecca LeTourneau Podcast narrator: Peter Overton Podcast reporter: Allison Langdon Podcast producers: David Hardaker, Liz Little, Helen Lunn and Toula Udowenko Sound Engineering and Design:  Joe Lee Executive Producer: Kirsty Thomson   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
