    Nabbing Ned Kelly

    Nabbing Ned Kelly

    Author David Dufty talks about his book – ‘Nabbing Ned Kelly: The extraordinary true story of the men who brought Australia's notorious outlaw to justice'. The book is a refreshingly new look at the work of police in bringing a major criminal to justice in colonial Victoria. It challenges the myths surrounding Kelly and his gang, who were in real life vicious and violent thugs. The book is published by Allen & Unwin and is widely available now.

    Our 75th Birthday & Murders in the ‘Top End’

    The APJ has marked its 75th Anniversary with a special issue containing some of the most fascinating articles which have been published over the decades. APJ Editor Pat Paroz joins host Jason Byrnes to discuss what’s inside the anniversary issue. 

    Jason then talks to Detective Sergeant Isobel Cummins of the Northern Territory Police. D/SGT Cummins was part of an investigation into a senseless double homicide in the country’s ‘Top End’ in 2004. The short but intense police investigation included an interstate manhunt for the two offenders, who to this day have not given authorities a clear account of their actions in the murders.

    Host: Jason Byrnes
    Guests: Isobel Cummins and Pat Paroz APM.
