Murder In The Outback: The Falconio and Lees Mystery

  • Channel 4, 9.15pm

Australia has had its fair share of nasty murders over the years, including one that made international headlines in 2001 when British backpacker Joanne Lees flagged down passers-by on the highway to tell them that she and her boyfriend, Peter Falconio, had been attacked.

His body was never found, but a man named Bradley John Murdoch was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of the 28-year-old Yorkshireman.

Over four consecutive nights, former defence lawyer Andrew Fraser looks back on the case, raising questions about some of the evidence presented, revisiting the crime scene with a forensic scientist, and chatting to witnesses.
