Inside Story

Introduced by writer Elizabeth Farrelly

In a television exclusive, the untold story of James Ricketson, the Australian filmmaker locked up in Cambodia for 15 months on espionage charges.

Ricketson endured squalid conditions and failing health as he found himself a pawn in much larger game of Cambodian politics.

Meanwhile in working for his release his family faced a dilemma — to go along with the Australian Government's "softly, softly" diplomatic approach or ceding to James's demands to shout injustice from the rooftops and risk even harsher punishment (final for 2018).
