2. The Demonisation Of Lindy Chamberlain: Another Baby, Taken

Alice Lynn Chamberlain went from living a quiet, family-focused life to being Australia’s most despised woman. For two years, the press had vilified Lindy and the hatred of the public only made the prosecutor's job easier; to convince a jury that Lindy, not a dingo, had killed Azaria Chamberlain. On this episode of The Demonisation Of Lindy Chamberlain, we’ll learn what happened when Lindy had her day in court, what put an innocent woman behind bars, and how was a jury persuaded to condemn her based on misleading evidence.
