The Killing Season Uncut: behind the scenes with Sarah Ferguson

sarah fergusonBeing a fly on the wall when then Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard challenged Kevin Rudd for the leadership in June 2010 with no warning either to him or the Australian public is something many Australians would have loved. Why did she do it? And who was behind the push to topple one of the most popular Prime Minister’s Australia has ever had? This is what award winning journalist Sarah Ferguson set about finding out with her team from the ABC, and the result was The Killing Season documentary series. Remarkably not only did Ferguson coax both Rudd and Gillard to set out their version of events on camera, but over 100 key players, from senior Labor politicians to political advisors, came forward with their account too. Now Sarah Ferguson, along with Researcher Patricia Drum, has put more pieces of the puzzle together in the new book The Killing Season Uncut.
