Witcombe details her research into the life of Daisy Bates. Witcombe was invited by Sir Robert Helpmann, on behalf of Katherine Hepburn, to investigate Bates' life with a view to developing a filmscript. (Hepburn intended to star in the film production.)

Witcombe uncovered previously unknown aspects of Bates' life that threw doubt on popularly held images of the iconic figure.
