AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A psychological thriller and procedural drama, CATCHING MILAT is a dramatised version of the investigation into the 1990s backpacker murders leading to the arrest and conviction of serial killer Ivan Milat. After the bodies of backpackers are discovered in Belanglo State Forest, New South Wales’ Police unit Task Force Air begins its search for a murderer. Ultimately the bodies of seven backpackers are found. With the help of forensic evidence and tip-offs from the public, thousands of leads are investigated before Milat is finally arrested in 1994. CATCHING MILAT is the story of the men who brought him to justice. The mini-series is based on the book Sins of the Brother by Mark Whittaker and Les Kennedy and produced by Shine Australia for Seven. ' (Production summary)
