10 has locked in its much antincipated Lindy Chamberlain: The True Story documentary for later this month.

We know the name Lindy Chamberlain. And now for the first time, we will know the truth, as told by her.


It was the story that shook Australia and flooded news rooms all over the world. In 1980, while on a family camping trip in Uluru, the Chamberlain family’s world came undone when a dingo took their defenceless baby, Azaria in a random and horrific attack.

However, for the Chamberlains, that was only the beginning of the nightmare that was about to come. The intrigue of the mostly unknown outback; of a mother not behaving to conventional expectations; of a ruthless media, self-serving politicians and cowboy police all resulted in the trial of the century and Australia’s most notorious miscarriage of justice.


In a Network 10 exclusive, 40 years after Azaria Chamberlain’s disappearance, Lindy Chamberlain and her family share their side of the story and their all consuming heartbreak from losing their baby girl, to the never ending nightmare that was Lindy’s prosecution, conviction, imprisonment and exoneration for Azaria’s murder.


Narrated by Sam Neill, Lindy Chamberlain: The True Story also features insights and exclusive interviews with eyewitnesses, high profile media, high court judges and family friends, giving viewers the complete story from start to finish.

Lindy Chamberlain: The True Story.

Premieres Sunday, 27 September At 7.30pm On 10.
