Description
I unpick and put in chronological order thousands of pieces of paper -- lay out the facts as they arrived the first time, unadorned, uninterpreted, flying in from dozens of sources and every corner of the world.

 

What really went on? Were the police corrupt? Did the conspiracy theorists believe what they wanted to believe?

 

Who did bomb the Hilton?

 

On 13 February 1978 a bomb exploded outside the Hilton Hotel in George Street, Sydney. Two garbage collectors and a police officer were killed. Often called the first act of terrorist murder on Australian soil, the crime is still unsolved.

 

Award-winning filmmaker and historian Rachel Landers wrestles with the evidence to unravel this complex cold case in forensic detail, exposing corruption, conspiracy theories and political intrigue - and a prime suspect.
