The child killer
Prison guards describe him as Australia’s Hannibal Lecter. Derek Ernest Percy has been kept behind bars for more than 40 years, even though he’s never been convicted of a crime. And he’s still considered so dangerous he should never be allowed near children. This chilling Sunday Night investigation about Derek Percy uncovers new evidence and witnesses that link him to the killing of three-year-old Simon Brook, and places him at the scene of Australia’s most infamous unsolved crimes. It’s now suspected Percy was involved in the abduction of nine children in three states during the 1960s, including the case of the Beaumont children. And he’s now attempting to win his freedom, unless authorities can finally bring him to justice.
Sunday Night guest reporter Tony Squires takes you on an emotional high-octane roller-coaster ride as a bunch of starry-eyed hopefuls from suburban Sydney take on the world in the Cheerleading Olympics. Witness the laughter, pain and emotion of a sport that is every bit as competitive and brutal as a game of football. The Cheerleading Olympics features 8000 athletes and 380 teams from 25 countries– including the minnows from Down Under, dubbed The Starlets, who battle injury and tragedy in their pursuit of cheerleading glory.
The Outback Wrangler
Some people search for adventure, others are born into it. Chopper pilot and dangerous animal wrangler Matthew Wright has spent his life in the great outdoors, drawn to the creatures that most people dread. Discovered by Sunday Night in one of our very first shows, Matt’s motto is “any animal, anywhere, anytime”. And now the ‘Outback Wrangler’ is going global. Guest reporter Samantha Armytage, from Seven News and Weekend Sunrise, catches up with Matt just before the launch of his new TV show which is airing in the US and 90 countries around the world.
