Listen to the last episode:

On July 7, 1960, eight-year-old Graeme Thorne went missing from the corner store near his family's Bondi home.  It was five weeks after his parents, Bazil and Freda, had won a massive $100,000 in an Opera House lottery.  His disappearance was the country's first well-known kidnap for ransom, and would lead to the biggest manhunt in Australia’s history. In this episode, Gemma Bath is joined by Mark Tedeschi QC to discuss how the case unfolded and why it's imprinted in the Australian psyche.  THE END BITS Subscribe to Mamamia CREDITS Guest: Mark Tedeschi QC You can read more about his work on this case in his book Kidnapped.
