ACCIDENT OR ARSON? HAS SOMEONE GOTTEN AWAY WITH MURDER? A BRAND NEW EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT TRUE CRIME SERIES FROM THE MAKERS OF THE CASE OF KELI LANE

Absorbing and emotionally gripping, this new series from multi award-winning journalist Caro Meldrum-Hanna is a stunning investigation into the untold story of the 1979 Ghost Train Fire at Sydney’s iconic Luna Park.

On a winter’s night over forty years ago, cries of delight turned into screams of terror as the Park’s iconic Ghost Train ride erupted into flames – fast becoming a hellish inferno, it consumed everything in its vicinity. Tragically, six boys and one man died - John Godson (29) and his two sons, Damien (6) and Craig (4), and four schoolboy best friends: Jonathan Billings (13), Richard Carroll (13), Michael Johnson (13) and Seamus Rahilly (13).

At the time, while the public outcry was loud and the media coverage considerable, the fire was written off by authorities as a terrible accident. But the devastated families of those who died in the fire, and many of those who survived it, have long suspected foul play. Despite multiple inquiries, rumours and innuendo, no one has ever been held accountable – and the mystery behind the fire continues to haunt.

Leaving no stone unturned, Caro and the team are determined to get at the truth of this catastrophic event. With unprecedented access to the key people involved, EXPOSED: The Ghost Train Fire features an astonishing cast of eyewitnesses, police, investigators, and government insiders who have never spoken before.

The compelling journey to uncover the real story of what happened to the Ghost Train, and the deeply felt, lingering trauma for all those involved brings an immediacy to this unsolved mystery, as silences are finally broken and shocking secrets finally told.
