The Trouble With Murder - See it on Prime TV!

Our new documentary series begins Monday 26 January at 8.30pm, on Prime TV

The Trouble with Murder is a powerful and gripping new series looking at the history of sentencing for murder in New Zealand through the cases that shocked the nation.


Over three compelling and thought-provoking episodes, The Trouble with Murder tells the story of how New Zealand has punished people who kill.

From the death penalty, last used in our country over sixty years ago, to today’s longer and longer non-parole prison sentences to the introduction of ‘three strikes’ policies with the possibility of no chance of parole, this series offers a balanced view and unique perspectives on a contentious, controversial and hotly debated subject.
