THE TV SPECIAL THAT INSPIRED ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR TRUE CRIME PODCASTS OF ALL TIME

DOWNLOADED BY MORE THAN 27 MILLION PEOPLE

She was a wife, a mother, a sister and a daughter. Lyn Dawson had everything to live for, so why did she disappear without a trace 36 years ago?

Her husband Chris, a PE teacher, always insisted she abandoned him and their two young daughters to ‘sort things out’. Days later, he moved his teenage lover into the family home.

The case has gripped audiences around the world since the release of the international hit podcast, The Teacher’s Pet, by investigative journalist Hedley Thomas.

Australian Story first covered the story 15 years ago. This next chapter features exclusive interviews with friends and family of Lyn Dawson and those charged with enacting justice, both then and now.
