GENRE: TRUE CRIME

IT’S 1988. JUST OUTSIDE OF TAMWORTH IN COUNTRY NEW SOUTH WALES, A FREIGHT TRAIN HITS SOMEONE LYING ON THE TRACKS. BUT WHEN A RAIL WORKER LOOKS AT THE BODY, THE SCENE DOESN’T SEEM TO MAKE SENSE.

Twenty-five years later, journalist Allan Clarke picks up the case the more time he spends with Mark’s family, the more he feel he’s becoming a part of it. Allan tells a story of a town divided, an investigation bungled, evidence lost...and critical leads
never followed up. We follow Allan through five years of investigation.

His reporting sparks a resurgence of interest in the case that sees the file reopened, a review launched, a reward announced. During two trips to Tamworth our investigative team dives deeper and the thirty-year-old mystery finally begins to unravel. As Allan gets closer to the truth, the story ends with a revelation no-one was expecting.

PRESENTED BY ALLAN CLARKE

His previous reporting on Mark Haines’ death has led to the case being reopened, a police review of the initial investigation and the posting of a reward for information to be posted by authorities.
