This Week on 3rd Degree – a Major New Development in the Bain Case
This week 3rd Degree features a major story from 2012 Journalist of the Year, Melanie Reid; a stunning new development
in New Zealand’s biggest unsolved crime, the Bain case.
For 19 years the arguments have raged – was it David Bain who shot his entire family, or did his father Robin commit the
murders before turning the gun on himself?
On Wednesday night at 8.30pm, Melanie Reid will unveil dramatic new evidence pointing to who loaded the murder weapon
and pulled the trigger.
“It’s extraordinary that this has been missed for so long,” says Reid. “But there is no doubt that it was. As you’ll see
on 3rd Degree, a number of experts have looked at this and a lot of testing has taken place. I think you’ll find it
“I'm sure many people will change their minds.”
Hosted by Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner, 3rd Degree screens Wednesdays at 8.30pm on TV3.
