Tasmania passes over raw Spotlight episode
Seven Tasmania will screen Border Security instead of 7News investigation into Martin Bryant.
Tasmanian viewers won’t be seeing 7News Spotlight on Sunday night when it screens a story on Port Arthur gunman, Martin Bryant.
Instead Seven Tasmania viewers, an affiliate owned by Southern Cross Austereo, will be watching Border Security episodes.
25 years after the death of 35 people, reporter Denham Hitchcock claims Bryant killed his father and teases new evidence that the death of a wealthy lover in a car crash was murder.
Asking whether Bryant could have been stopped years before Port Arthur, new witnesses also suggest Australia’s worst mass murderer was left unchallenged to carry out his crime.
Meanwhile later this year Stan will screen a local feature on the dark chapter, Nitram with Caleb Landry Jones, Judy Davis, Essie Davis and Anthony LaPaglia.
The Spotlight episode also offers a new eyewitness coming forward in the saga surrounding Craig McLachlan.
Southern Cross Austereo has been contacted for comment.
