ABC investigative journalist Caro Meldrum-Hanna unveils her next true crime case, Exposed: The Ghost Train Fire.
This centres around a 1979 fire at Sydney’s Luna Park in which six boys and one man perished.
This is a 3 part documentary as people break their silence on suspected foul play.
42 years of not knowing. 42 years of questions unanswered. One last chance to get to the truth.
Across three feature-length episodes, this stunning investigation reveals the untold story of the 1979 Ghost Train Fire at Sydney’s iconic Luna Park.
On a winter’s night screams of delight turned into screams of terror as the Ghost Train ride erupted in flames, quickly becoming an inferno. Six boys and one man died.
The fire was written off by authorities as a terrible accident but was it something more sinister?
Despite multiple inquiries, rumours and innuendo, no one has ever been held accountable for the blaze.
Leaving no stone unturned, Caro and the team re-investigate the tragic event which claimed the lives of seven people: John Godson (29) and his two sons, Damien (6) and Craig (4). And four schoolboy best mates: Jonathan Billings (13), Richard Carroll (13), Michael Johnson (13) and Seamus Rahilly (13).
With unprecedented access to the key people involved, The Ghost Train Fire features an astonishing cast of eyewitnesses, police, investigators, and government insiders who have never spoken before.
Silences will be broken and secrets will be told.
The families of those who died in the fire, and many of those who survived it, have long suspected foul play.
Join Exposed as it sets out to find truth and justice before it is too late.
