It is widely acknowledged the Catholic Church protected its worst offenders and moved them on to prey on new unsuspecting communities. What is not understood is the Victoria Police Force also bears a grave responsibility for the betrayal of Ballarat's children.

Thankyou for letting the truth out

It’s an important story that needed telling, but sad and tragic. Lots of interviews with the victims and the police that tried in vein to prosecute. Thanks to the victims for speaking out. Onky criticism is the sound is a bit low, hard to hear, especially episode 3.
