Imagine your trauma leads the news. Your private life is then public property. Your anonymity is lost. That’s what it’s like to become an accidental celebrity. Now, the spotlight is turned around. Each weekly episode offers rare media insights from an ordinary Australian who faced an extraordinary event. They expose the tricks of a competitive trade – the relentless pursuits, the manipulation and misrepresentation, the betrayals of truth and trust – with journalist Fiona Reynolds. Learn too why they participated in media coverage. This is the inside story on a shrewd industry that plucks unknowns from obscurity to feed our fascination with adversity and the strength of the human spirit.
