60 Minutes: May 28

60 Minutes has a cross-promo story for Hamish & Andy ahead of True Story plus a Queensland cold case solved after breaking the criminal code of silence.

Hamish & Andy
Like Dame Edna and Kylie before them, Hamish and Andy have achieved such a level of fame there’s no need to bother with their last names. For the record though, they’re Blake and Lee. The stars of radio and television have been making Australia laugh for 15 years now, although when the gangly duo first came to our attention, no one predicted their longevity or celebrity. On 60 Minutes, Hamish and Andy share the rather simple secret to their business success – if they’re having fun, then so too will their fans. Liz Hayes is also invited behind the scenes to meet the best mates’ families and she discovers there’s a new generation of performer who can’t wait to steal the show.

Breaking the Code
In a Brisbane court today, one of Australia’s most horrendous crimes was finally solved when 78 year-old Vince O’Dempsey was found guilty of murdering young mother Barbara McCulkin and her two daughters, 13 year-old Vicki and 11 year-old Leanne. In all likelihood, the evil thug O’Dempsey will now spend the rest of his life in prison, along with another monster, his 70 year-old co-accused, Garry Dubois, who was convicted of the crime in a separate trial late last year. The murders happened 43 years ago and had been one of Queensland’s oldest cold cases. But as Ross Coulthart reports in this major 60 Minutes investigation, the brutal crime was only solved because of the incredible dedication of two unassuming police detectives who convinced two vital witnesses to do the unthinkable – to break a four-decade-long criminal code of silence.

  1. Love Hamish and andy. Have been listening to them on radio for the past 10 years. So sad this year is their last. Can’t wait for True Story tho. And hopefully we will have many more tv shows from them in the years ahead.
