Brilliant, forensic analysis of real life death in the desert
9 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this mini-series when it was first broadcast here in Australia, over a year ago, I think. So, I'm going on memory describing it now in late 2006.

Briefly, this mini-series is now what I would consider the definitive account of the infamous case of Lindy Chamberlain and the death of her daughter Azaria at Ayers Rock/Uluru. The first motion picture account of this story was the movie starring Merryl Streep (known as Evil Angels in Australia and A Cry In The Dark, I think, in the US).

This mini-series has a necessary pre-amble to the story, but is overly long in my opinion, in ramming home the context in which baby Azaria first disappeared at Uluru and was later presumed murdered by her mother, Lindy Chamberlain (a charge later prosecuted by the authorities).

Now, the brilliance of this mini-series lies in the forensic detail of the machinations of the police investigation of this presumed murder and the evidence given in trial to convict Lindy.

If you like law and order type shows, cop shows with forensic science provided, you should find much to enjoy in this mini-series. It's my understanding that the Lindy Chamberlain case was very influential in establishing forensic science practice here in Australia, and perhaps overseas as well. By watching this mini-series, you can feel a part of this journey of understanding of the rights and wrongs of the case and the methods used to try Lindy Chamberlain.

This is outstanding television, based on court transcripts and the personal account of Lindy Chamberlain. If you've heard about "witch hunts" of previous centuries, this is the modern day equivalent.
