Seven has confirmed that Murder Uncovered will air on Wednesday nights.
Murder Uncovered is a breakthrough investigative series that will blow wide open some of the worst, most infamous cases of killings and crimes in Australian criminal history.
Featuring award-winning journalist Michael Usher, each episode will examine a different case that enraged and engaged the country, presenting new evidence, major breakthroughs and fresh leads that will have you questioning everything.
Kate Moir was just 17 when she became the fifth victim of Australia’s worst serial killer couple, David and Catherine Birnie. Kate was snatched a knife point from the street by the Birnie’s, a cruel and calculating couple who prowled the suburbs looking for young women to abduct, torture and kill.
Now for the first time, Kate tells her remarkable story of how she dramatically escaped from the Birnie’s spree of evil and death. Only her bravery, tenacity and will to live saved her and saved the lives of more young women who most certainly would have become victims as well.
Despite enduring a terrifying ordeal and believing she was going to be killed, Kate somehow kept a level head and managed a miraculous escape. Within hours the Birnie’s were arrested. And it would take a crack team of investigators to break them.
You will hear their firsthand accounts of how they convinced the couple to confess as chilling new details are uncovered from never-before-given interviews with the detectives who investigated at the time.
Catherine Birnie’s own son breaks his silence revealing what it was like to be raised by a serial killer and his wish for his murderous mother.
And, the shocking revelation that could have seen the Birnie’s get away with their crimes.
From the team that made the critically-acclaimed Anita Cobby documentary and In Cold Blood… The Chris Lane Story, Murder Uncovered will dramatically revitalise the crime genre.
Just when you thought you knew it all…
MURDER UNCOVERED premieres Wednesday 8 Feb at 9pm on Seven
