OUTBACK CORONER-An eight part observational documentary series

OUTBACK CORONER is an 8 x 50 minute observational documentary series that explores accidental and unexplained deaths in the most remote regions of Australia. When the circumstances of a death are unknown the Coroner is called, it is the oldest office in the English legal system. The series takes us into the lives of the recently bereaved through the eyes of the Coroner as he tends to a fundamental human need for closure after the death of a loved one and offers society answers for the death of a fellow human being. With around 18,000 deaths reported to Coroners across Australia each year, the mix of cultures, social history and remote geography present unique challenges to these dedicated people and their teams. A Screentime and Evershine co –production.
