Murder in the Outback
After surviving the terrifying outback abduction of her boyfriend, Joanne Lees became the victim of a relentless trial by media across two continents. With no body to speak of, reported \'sightings\' of Peter, and revelations Joanne had cheated on her boyfriend, the public and media in both Britain and Australia refused to accept Joanne\'s innocence on face value. This is the story of one young woman\'s courage in the face of one of the most mysterious crimes in Australian history.
During the Boer War, three Australian lieutenants are on trial for shooting Boer prisoners. Though they acted under orders, they are being used as scapegoats by the General Staff, who hopes to distance themselves from the irregular practices of the war. The trial does not progress as smoothly as expected by the General Staff, as the defence puts up a strong fight in the courtroom.
