WHO KILLED DR BOGLE & MRS CHANDLER?

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. But the Coroner could find no cause of death, killer or motive. Some suggested Cold War assassination. Others claimed it was an overdose of LSD. In his multi-award winning drama-documentary, filmmaker Peter Butt reveals explosive evidence missed by investigators.
