This Week on 3rd Degree – New Development in the Bain Case

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 compelling.

“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.
