Beyond Reasonable Doubt
The true story of the six-year fight to free a farmer who's jailed for a double murder which he didn't commit.
June 22 1970. The discovery of a baby in an empty bloodstained farmhouse brings police and searchers to a tiny New Zealand farming settlement, beginning a series of events which will divide a country and dominate headlines for the next ten years.
BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT is the film of the most baffling and controversial case in New Zealand history.
The police led by Inspector Bruce Hutton (DAVID HEMMINGS) had little to go on. No bodies, few clues, no motive. For three months a massive search operation concetrated on finding the victims – a local farmer and his wife. Suspicion focussed on the woman's father, Len Demler (MARTYN SANDERSON). Suddenly, with the discovery of both bodies in a nearby river, police attention switched to a local farmer Arthur Allan Thomas (JOHN HARGREAVES). In November 1970 Thomas stood trial on a charge of double murder. He was found guilty.
