Over three episodes, this doco series leads to the dark heart of Australia now: high-level corruption, drug deals, multiple murders and sex assaults against women.
It exposes the dark underbelly of sunny Australia, the mongrel beneath our idyllic beach and bush lifestyles from the late ‘70s to the present. Throughout the series, investigative journalists Ruby Jones and Neil Mercer are confronted by the ugly stories of violence of 1970s Australia, especially against young women.
