The five-year quest to uncover the truth about Victoria Cross recipient Ben Roberts-Smith is the focus of the seventh title under Stan’s Revealed documentary banner.
Dora Weekley’s Ben Roberts-Smith Truth On Trial traces the origins of journalists Nick McKenzie and Chris Masters’ reports in 2018 that Australia’s most decorated living soldier committed war crimes in Afghanistan, through to the subsequent stories on 60 Minutes and Roberts-Smith taking them to court in a defamation trial that ended in 2023.
Created in collaboration with 60 Minutes, The Age, and The Sydney Morning Herald, the feature-length documentary is produced by Weekley, with Cailah Scobie and Amanda Duthie executive producing for Stan.
