Sarah Ferguson hybridises doc and current affairs at AIDC 2020

Key Four Corners journalist Sarah Ferguson confronts paedophile priests in a three-part 90-minute documentary series.

Sarah Ferguson has been a key frontline creator on Four Corners for a decade. She has excellent investigative skills, is a brilliant interviewer, with a mischievous sense of humour who loves layered conversation and contradiction. 

But her session in conversation with Steven Oliver, modestly called the manager of documentary at the ABC, was mostly on her three-part series Revelation about sexual assault in the Catholic Church. It starts on Tuesday 17 March, and the ABC has allowed it the space of three feature length slots until the end of the month.
