Colourful characters, crime and consequence – law on the small screen is the second Law Week podcast by Victoria Law Foundation.
Listen to host Lynne Haultain and a panel of three of Australia’s most prominent television writers discuss crime on the tele – why do we love it and what does it do to our understanding of justice?
Niki Aken is a television writer who has worked on shows including Underbelly and Janet King.
Hillary Bonney is a practising barrister and true crime author whose books include The Society Murders and The Double Life of Herman Rockefeller.
TV writer Elizabeth Coleman’s credits include Wanted, Newton’s Law, and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.
Our podcast was recorded live at Deakin University’s Deakin Downtown, in Melbourne’s Docklands.
Last year, Victoria Law Foundation presented our first podcast as part of Law Week 2018 - Law in the digital era: What goes into creating investigative podcasts?
