Sherlock - Season 4

image

From Sunday 2 December at 8:30pm (3 parts)

As Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) waits for Moriarty (Andrew Scott) to make his posthumous move, an intriguing puzzle captures the mercurial detective’s attention. But this case is more dangerous than he could have imagined.

There is a dark purpose at work. Something with its roots deep in Mary Watson’s (Amanda Abbington) past. Sherlock and John will face their most chilling enemies yet. Everything they know will be tested. Everyone they know is under threat. Is the game finally over?


#637

The Spicks and Specks reunion special was fantastic. This is how you make an Australian music quiz show. It was spot on, and it’s difficult to fault anything that was in that program. Definitely deserves a Logie award next year.

Barrenjoey Road

Tonight Tuesday 8.30pm

ABC EXCLUSIVE – CORRUPT COP MARK STANDEN BREAKS HIS SILENCE OVER MISSING TEENAGER

ABC’S BARRENJOEY ROAD INVESTIGATION REVEALS DETAILS OF DISGRACED COP MARK STANDEN’S RELATIONSHIP WITH TRUDIE ADAMS’ MURDER SUSPECT, PROMPTING LETTERS TO JOURNALISTS FROM PRISON

As part of the ABC’s true crime investigation series Barrenjoey Road , journalists Ruby Jones and Neil Mercer have revealed breakthrough evidence demonstrating a long and deep friendship between career criminal Neville Tween, aka John Anderson, and corrupt former NSW Crime Commission investigator, Mark Standen.

The revelations are made in tonight’s episode of the documentary series Barrenjoey Road , airing on ABC TV at 8.30pm and in series two of the podcast, Unravel: True Crime . Barrenjoey Road sheds new light on the mystery disappearance of 18-year-old Trudie Adams on Sydney’s northern beaches 40 years ago.

The Barrenjoey Road investigation has prompted Standen to speak out for the first time since being jailed in 2008.

In letters recently written by Standen to Jones and Mercer, the disgraced former officer breaks his silence, detailing an extremely close relationship with the suspected serial rapist and murderer, Neville Tween.

Tween was suspected by police of involvement in a series of murders and 14 brutal rapes on the northern beaches. He was eventually jailed for his part in a major cocaine importation and died in jail.

In the letters, Standen confirms that his family and the Tween families lived for years just streets away on the NSW Central Coast during the early ‘90s, sharing a dog park and tennis court. Later, certain members of both families set up a business together. It’s not suggested that any of those family members knew about Tween’s criminal background.

“Socialization was unavoidable and as I perceived no threat to my family from Anderson,” Standen writes. “I merely compartmentalised my work and social interactions. I formed the view that he was a retired old-school criminal looking for a quiet life on the coast.”

The revelations have prompted criticism from former NSW detective, now professor of policing, Mick Kennedy.

“How can he possibly be a family friend?” said Kennedy. “How the fuck could you even let him in your house knowing what he’s done? That would have been the average copper’s response to Mark Standen trying to explain why he’s friendly with Neville Tween.”

The ABC investigation team has also been told Neville Tween was an informant of Mark Standen.

Kennedy believes this is another strong reason for an investigation into the relationship he describes as “the unholy relationship”.

“What happens is when police get investigated for these historical matters it’s never about the actual incidents themselves it’s about the cover up,” said Kennedy. “And the cover up is not necessarily about criminal activity it’s about competency, it’s about misconduct.”

In addition to Standen’s letters, the Barrenjoey Road journalists have obtained evidence that suggests Standen could have stalled an investigation into missing woman Trudie Adams.

Episode 2 of Barrenjoey Road airs on ABC and ABC iview Tuesdays at 8.30pm. Episode 1 is available to view on demand on ABC iview now.

A new episode of Season 2 of the Unravel: True Crime podcast is available today from wherever you get your podcasts.


#643

Since the show started airing on ABC Kids a month ago, ABC (main channel) have been showing “special presentations” of Bluey at 6pm. For those who don’t know, it’s a soon-to-be-cult animated show for little kids about a family of dogs (literally everyone in the show is a dog).

Before that, there is a short promo advising the viewer about it being a special presentation. Could anyone capture it?

BARRENJOEY ROAD Episode 3

Tonight Tuesday 13 November at 8.30pm

As part of the ABC’s true crime investigation series Barrenjoey Road , journalists Ruby Jones and Neil Mercer have uncovered new information that could reveal the possible location of the remains of missing teenager Trudie Adams who disappeared from Sydney’s Northern Beaches in 1978.

In this week’s episode of TV series Barrenjoey Road and series two of podcast Unravel: True Crime , Jones and Mercer uncover new evidence from a former law enforcement source who suggests that Trudie Adams remains could be in a waterway near Christmas Tree Hill, Cottage Point, in Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. According to this source, a known underworld figure has suggested that Adams’ body was disposed of in this location. The information has been passed on to police.

Following the release of Unravel: True Crime and Barrenjoey Road episodes, Jones and Mercer have been inundated with tips and leads relating to their investigation that they are currently pursuing with the hope of being able to get justice for Trudie’s family and friends.

Episode three of Barrenjoey Road airs on Tuesday 13 November at 830pm; episode 7 of Unravel: True Crime series 2 is available now.


#645

It has been scheduled right before Doctor Who on Mondays so the sci-fi drama can finish just before 7pm news.

Gatwick- The Last Chance Hotel - the real story

image

Tuesday 27 November at 9:30pm

In 2018 Australians were given a glimpse of the Gatwick Private Hotel in St Kilda on popular renovation series The Block .

The Gatwick has been described by some as a flophouse, a hell hole even, and by others as providing an essential service for the disadvantaged.

Shot over four years, GATWICK - The Last Chance Hotel chronicles the final years of the Gatwick Private Hotel, a boarding house that over the years became a local, and then national icon and reveals the intimate stories and the fascinating characters you never knew about – and the women who dedicated their lives to looking after them.

Rose Banks and Yvette Kelly offered their tenants much more than a roof over their heads, and Gatwick – The Last Chance Hotel is as much a loving tribute to the sisters as it is a contemplation of dignity and the challenges faced by the underprivileged, including the basic need for shelter.

Clouded by various myths perpetuated in the media, this film tells the true story of Rose Banks and Yvette Kelly, twin sisters who worked at the hotel from the age of 14 until they sold the property in 2017.

Halfway home to a few; home to many, in this intimate documentary, we observe a rag tag menagerie of characters who either live in; frequent; or work at the Gatwick, under the watchful and caring eyes of twin sisters known locally as ‘The Saints of St Kilda’.
