Last night Nine rushed to air an episode from its crime documentary series, Australian Families of Crime, that featured Carl Williams.
It was an astute programming move, to capitalise on the news-making death of the convicted killer yesterday.
Narrated by Vince Colosimo, it included interviews with Age journalist John Silvester (Leadbelly), investigative journalist Adam Shand, broadcaster Derryn Hinch plus archival footage and dramatic re-enactments.
This Sunday it officially premieres the rest of the series with “Backpack Bloodshed: Ivan Milat”
Join Vince Colosimo as he presents the torrid details of the notorious Milat family. Some members of the family continue to support Ivan Milat, the nation’s worst serial killer, but Ivan’s brother Boris sheds light on the real Ivan.
This pushes V back to 10:30pm. This will be the third new starting time for the sci fi series.
The movie Underworld is not out with the 11:30pm timeslot TBA.
