DEATH BY GOSSIP
Weekdays at 21:10 and 01:50 from 6th – 13th October. Repeated weekends at 21:10 and 01:20 from 15th October.
“Death by Gossip” showcases crimes fuelled by rumours ripe with false details and half-truths, where idle gossip has turned dark and dangerous… Lending even more belief to the age-old proverb, “don’t believe everything you hear” – too bad these criminals didn’t follow that advice!
Season 13 Marathons
Weekends from 1st – 29th October from 12:00 continuing into next month.
With her outspoken style, hard-hitting decisiveness and biting wit, Judge Judith Sheindlin single-handedly reinvented the courtroom genre and in the process has become a genuine pop culture phenomenon. A former New York family court judge known for her ability to cut through a dispute and get to the core of the emotional issue at hand, Judge Judy acts as a true moral compass for people seeking guidance, resolution and a little common sense in their often complicated lives. Judge Judy’s goal is to make a permanent and worthwhile impression that will discourage repeat offenders and help heal families and victims of injustice. There are many imitators, but only one JUDGE JUDY!
INSIDE STORY - CRIME
Season 1 - PREMIERE
Weekdays at 21:10 and 01:50 from 16th October until 26th October. Repeated weekends as double bill at 22:00 from 22nd October.
This prime time current affairs series investigates major crime stories and events that hit the headlines in Australia and beyond. “Inside Story - Crime” exposes the facts behind murders by family members and lovers, brutal slayings by teenage killers, tales of cheats, con-artists and fraudsters, violent and fatal obsessions, cases of outrageous negligence – all those news items where audiences want to know what really happened.
THE JURY ROOM
Season 1 – PREMIERE
CBS REALITY ORIGINAL
Weekdays at 21:10 and 01:50 from 27th October, continuing into next month.
What happens behind the closed doors of the jury room? How do twelve ordinary people balance their emotions with the cold hard facts? This brand new original series re-examines real murder cases where convicted killers have always maintained their innocence. The accepted facts of each case are presented, as originally seen by the actual trial judge and jury, to the twelve members of our specially selected CBS Reality Jury and simultaneously to our audience at home. Each sitting offers either revelatory new evidence or a more advanced analysis of pre-existing evidence that may influence the jury’s judgment. We watch the action unfold in real time as the women and men in the jury room consider each defendant’s fate. As our jury reaches its verdict, we ask: in the CBS Reality Jury’s view and in the eyes of our audience – are the convicted killers Guilty or Innocent?
