    1. No, the media have not blabbed. The Victorian government funded the DNA research etc which happens to have an SBS doco tracking it. But the government was always going to be releasing the info first. Clearly SBS was unable to publicise or play the doco ahead of that as part of the arrangements. The fact it has made headlines will enhance the lure of the audience. On this occasion it’s not a spoiler, it’s news.
