A special thanks to other radio and TV journalists who were kind enough to interview me about the Lane case, including Brett Manson (then with Channel Ten), Julian Morrow (as part of his role with ABC TV Breakfast News and ABC Radio), Channel 7’s ‘Weekend Sunrise’ (the day after Lane’s sentencing in April 2011) and Brisbane radio station 4BC (the day before Lane’s sentencing in April 2011).

In late 2018, a three-part series titled ‘Exposed; The Case of Keli
Lane’ which claimed to be about the 2010 trial of Keli Lane for the murder
of her infant, Tegan, was aired on national television. I was not involved
in that series. No permission was sought or granted for any of my work to
be used in the creation of that series. The headlines and attention
generated by ‘Exposed’ amount to a re-trial by media, which is something I
am not involved in. Re-trials by media run a very high risk of giving false
hope and a very distorted, incomplete and partisan view of the facts of any
case.

‘Nice Girl’ is a narrative account of the Lane trial based only on the
evidence. 

My work is purely about what was decided through the proper channels and that material is there for anyone to read. I have no comment to make on
media speculation that is unsupported by any proper trial or review
process.
