Why aren’t we talking about The Queen and Zak Grieve?

Dan Box excels in this commendable documentary from The Australian.

Why is nobody talking about The Queen and Zak Grieve? The Australian’s excellent six-part short-form documentary series, made in collaboration with Screen Australia, has barely registered a blip on the social media radar since premiering a couple of weeks ago, and is the subject of barely any news articles not published by the newspaper itself.

It is a deeply compelling and at times superbly made true-crime series, available online ahead of a chunkier, stitched-together, 90-minute version to be screened on Foxtel later this month. The presenter/writer is the Oz’s national crime reporter, Walkey award-winning Dan Box, who navigates potential legal and ethical minefields with an unflappably cool head.
