TUESDAY 18TH MARCH, 9.30PM
The Back Pack Killer. Australia's worst solo serial killer, Ivan Milat, is now serving life for the murders of seven hitchhiking backpackers between 1989 and 1992.

Despite what life throws at them, the four men and their families will come up fighting, even if they are running late for the school bell.
