A Cry in the Dark 1988

Dramatisation of the infamous "Dingo Baby" case in which, on a Spring night in 1980 in the Australian outback close to Ayers Rock, baby Azaria was abducted by a dingo. Her distraught mother consistently stuck to this version of events, but did Lindy Chamberlain in fact commit the most bizarre murder in Australian history?
