SYNOPSIS: At last, an answer to one of the greatest unsolved cases in Australian crime history. When the bodies of brilliant physicist Dr Gilbert Bogle and his lover Mrs Margaret Chandler were found in bizarre circumstances on a Sydney riverbank in 1963, it captured the public imagination and launched an unprecedented murder investigation. Despite assistance from the FBI and Scotland Yard, the coroner could find no cause of death, killer or motive. In the ensuing years, scores of tabloid theories were put forward, from LSD to Cold War assassinations. But in the minds of many, including the police, Margaret Chandler’s husband, Geoffrey, was the likely culprit.
Four decades later, Peter Butt’s drama-documentary reveals explosive new evidence missed by investigators - evidence so powerful the police gave the filmmaker unprecedented access to their forensic records. It provides a stunning solution to one of crime's most baffling riddles: who killed Dr Bogle and Mrs Chandler?
