Schapelle Corby In Happier Times
These pictures show Schapelle Corby living on the Gold Coast in happier times. Taken at Christmas in 2001, it would be almost three more years before she made that fateful trip to Bali.
Are You Gunna Pass That Around?
Close scrutiny of the coffee table reveals what appears to be a baggie, a packet of oversized papers and a joint in the ashtray in front of Schapelle.
A marijuana user is not necessarily a drug smuggler, however and Channel Nine will tonight telecast part one of an explosive two-part documentary revealing the factual details of the October 2004 arrest, and subsequent trial and imprisonment of Schapelle Corby.
Nine Chief Executive Officer David Gyngell said Schapelle Corby - The Hidden Truth was the definitive work on the Corby saga, the most controversial Australian prisoner since Lindy Chamberlain.
‘It's a fly-on-the-wall, warts-and-all account of what actually happened at every step of the Schapelle Corby story,’ he said.
‘Forget what you've seen, read and heard about the Corby story - and take up an extraordinary eye witness vantage point for the first time, from which you can make your own informed judgment.’
‘This film will challenge all sorts of myths and beliefs the public has held until now, with amazing revelations of lies, rivalries, bribery, deceit, backstabbing and imploding relationships of key players.’
Caught on camera by award-winning independent documentary producer, Janine Hosking, over three and a half years of painstaking filming and research, the result is a powerful and emotional observational documentary.
Mr Gyngell said the towering strength of Janine Hosking's film was her unprecedented access to every major participant, from countless hours of filming with Schapelle herself, to her defence team and her whole family.
‘In its making Janine Hosking has neither sought nor extended any favour to anyone. Her sole undertaking to the Corby family was not to release her documentary publicly until Schapelle's case was determined, and all avenues for appeal exhausted,’ he said.
Janine Hosking said she was thrilled the Nine Network was telecasting her documentary.
‘This is an epic story which deserves to be told, and Nine has provided that opportunity. It’s taken more than three years of my life to compile and produce and I am delighted that the Australian public will now get to see it in its compelling and complete form.’
