False Witness 'is set in present day  Sydney,Tajikistan and London against the back drop of bickering intelligence agencies, fallible police forces and international tensions and was inspired by real life incidents including the 1997 theft of five Soviet built nuclear 'suitcase bombs' and explores a scenario that could lead to the West's worst nightmare - a nuclear attack.
'... British diplomat, Ian Porter (Dougray Scott) is apprehended at Heathrow Airport in possession of 30 kilos of heroin. Porter's unwillingness to cooperate leaves Scotland Yard Inspector Julie Hales (Rachael Blake) believing he is doing business with Russian arms and drug trafficker Sergei Krousov (Don Hany). Unaware that Krousov has intentions to sell a suitcase bomb, Scotland Yard offers to cut Porter a deal to turn on Krousov. In return they'll grant him immunity from prosecution and entry into their international witness program.
'Hales accompanies Porter and his estranged wife (Claire Forlani) to Sydney where chameleon Porter believes his handler at MI6 (Richard Roxburgh as Van Koors) can manipulate the Australian Federal Police protection team to allow him to complete his mission. AFP agent Wilson (Jeremy Lindsay Taylor) and Hales have no idea of Porter's MI6 links so, when their security is breached, all hell breaks loose.'

This film reveals the many lives of one larger-than-life woman: flamboyant design pioneer Florence Broadhurst. Born in outback Australia in 1899, Florence was a singer and dancer in Shanghai in the '20s and ran her own fashion boutique in London in the '30s, before sweeping into Sydney society as a painter and charity queen. But it was in her last incarnation that she really made her mark, shaking up conservative Australia with her bold, exotic wallpaper designs. Now, with her prints in huge demand internationally, the times have finally caught up with this glamorous, complicated, unconventional woman, whose brutal murder in 1977 has never been solved.
