Shadow Of Doubt

CI  |  August 6, 2016

In 2010, Susan Neill-Fraser, a Tasmanian grandmother was jailed for 26 years for killing her partner. There were no witnesses, no weapon, no forensic evidence linking her to the scene, no confession and Bob Chappell's body has never been found. The police focused on one suspect - Sue Neill-Fraser. Why was the jury convinced beyond reasonable doubt? Her family must prove she is innocent. The more they investigate the more they uncover mistakes, lies and misrepresentation. Set in Hobart, this documentary follows one of the most intriguing and alarming cases in recent Australian history.

Steve Bannon’s new world disorder.
As the Liberal Party tries to piece itself back together after the chaos of last week, Four Corners brings you an interview with the man hoping to overthrow the entire political class.
"I think that Australia is going to be a hotbed of populism."
Steve Bannon put Donald Trump in the White House and rewrote the rules of modern politics along the way. Described as the most dangerous political operative in America, the strategist, renegade Republican and professional provocateur channelled the anger and disappointment of those who felt left behind by globalism to install Donald Trump as president.
"There's a lot of anger out there and I think that this anger can be harnessed."
Now, he's taking his cause to the world in a crusade to "save" western civilisation, as the leader of a global populist-nationalist movement. He calls it a revolution.
"Populism is about getting decision making away from a set of kind of global elites...and get it back to working class people."
In an age of upheaval, he sees opportunity. After playing a key role in Britain's Brexit campaign, he's been forging links with right wing nationalist groups across Europe, including the French National Front.
Australia is next on his radar. He's identified Australia as ripe for his brand of revolution and plans to bring it here.
"Australia is at the tip of the spear on this."
In an interview with Sarah Ferguson, Bannon outlines his manifesto for change and why it resonates with people around the world.
"It doesn't matter how many liberal journalists come in here and say 'Oh this is a bunch of fascists, this is a bunch of Nazis, this is a bunch of racists.' This... is not going to stop."
