The Screen Guide

This dramatised documentary is about the hanging of condemned murderer, Ronald Ryan, at Pentridge Jail in 1967, the last man hanged in Australia. The documentary uses a mixture of recreation, interview and archival material to tell the story from the point of view of a journalist who attended the event. This journalist was Keith Willey, the uncle of writer-director Lewis Fitzgerald. To this day there is still some doubt as to Ryan's guilt.
