Can duo crack this cold case?

Bar­ren­joey Road, ABC, Tues­day at 8.30pm


ONE win­ter’s night in 1978, teenager Trudie Adams asked her mum to wait up for her as she headed to a dance at Newport Surf Club. Trudie never made it home and her body has never been found.

What hap­pened to Trudie that night? Why has her killer never been brought to jus­tice?

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.
