The Screen Guide

The new series, UNDERBELLY: A TALE OF TWO CITIES, will focus on the clash between anti-marijuana crusader Don Mackay and the organised crime groups that controlled the Griffith-based dope trade in the 1970s and 1980s. Mackay was murdered in the car park of the Griffith Hotel on 15 July 1977. Though bloodstains and several spent .22 cartridge cases were found at the scene, Mackay's body was never found.
