Blood on the Tracks

Blood on the Tracks

Available on DocPlay
It’s 1988. Just outside of Tamworth in country New South Wales, a freight train hits someone lying on the tracks. But when a rail worker looks at the body, the scene doesn’t seem to make sense. 25 years later, journalist Allan Clarke picks up the case and the more time he spends with Mark’s family, the more he feel he’s becoming a part of it. Allan tells a story of a town divided, an investigation bungled, evidence lost...and critical leads never followed up. We follow Allan through five years of investigation. His reporting sparks a resurgence of interest in the case that sees the file reopened, a review launched, a reward announced. During two trips to Tamworth our investigative team dives deeper and the thirty-year-old mystery finally begins to unravel. As Allan gets closer to the truth, the story ends with a revelation no-one was expecting.
