Using previously secret ASIO files, Persons of interest tells the story of spies, traitors, and intelligence intrigue in Australia. This is a story that has never been told before and it's one with a human face as the "Persons of Interest" take us through their files. The 4 x 1 hour series is based on four key individuals - the writers Roger Milliss and Frank Hardy, Student revolutionary Michael Hyde and Aboriginal activist Gary Foley. The four individuals sum up the history, fears and interests of the Australian intelligence services. "Persons of Interest" is both an insight into the dark glass of the intelligence services and a parable for our times.
Australia Wide tells the stories from the people and places that make up the Australian experience. From the city streets to the urban centres and beyond, our best reporters look behind the stories that make the news. We look at the things that affect us, from natural disasters and politics, to the things that inspire us in culture and the environment around us. It's about where we live, the lives we lead, the things that challenge and unite us.
