Lake Mungo, an ancient Pleistocene lake-bed in south-western New South Wales, is one of the world's richest archaeological sites. This documentary focuses on the interface over the last 40 years between the scientists and the Indigenous communities, who identify with the land and with the human remains revealed at the site. This interface has often been deeply troubled and contentious, but within the conflict and its gradual resolution lies a moving story of the progressive empowerment of the traditional custodians of the area.

This hard-hitting documentary takes you to the Northern Territory to investigate the confronting case of Zak Grieve, a 19-year-old man jailed for 20 years for a murder even the judge accepts he did not commit. Investigative reporter Dan Box spent weeks in the Top End town of Katherine investigating the killing and the events that led to Zak Grieve being jailed, despite evidence he was not there when the crime took place. Dan and his team conducted exclusive interviews with many of the people involved, including the judge who sent Grieve to jail, and obtained rare access to crime scene footage, forensic photographs, police interviews with suspects and trial recordings from the case. The program raises questions about the criminal justice system itself. How could this apparent injustice have happened? Is it time for the mandatory sentencing laws that led to Grieve's incarceration to finally be revoked?
