Forgotten Australia

True crimes, dark histories, unsolved mysteries, eccentric personalities and strange happenings: Forgotten Australia is history as you've never heard it before. Each episode brings to life people and events that were once known to everyone but are now barely remembered by anyone. Based on intensive original research, Forgotten Australia is crafted with a novelist’s eye for character and detail to create gripping narratives that sound so fresh it's like they're ripped from today's headlines.
