On 12 October 2002, two explosions devastated a busy tourist nightspot in Bali, Indonesia, in an internationally condemned act of terrorism killing 202 people from 21 countries and injuring a further 209. This four-part miniseries explores the events surrounding the double bombing, focusing on victims, survivors, the rescue operation, and the Australian-Indonesian investigation that followed. In an ensemble cast, Claudia Jessie plays British newlywed Polly Miller and Rachel Griffith is pioneering Australian burns expert Fiona Wood. Interspersing footage of the aftermath through  the dramatisation, this is an ambitious, powerful retelling of a harrowing atrocity.

Faith is in freefall tonight and heading towards rock bottom. Locked in her room, she ignores calls from HR while Natalia runs the household believing her mother has cancer. At work, Iain gives a statement to the nursing council, Stevie keeps mum about what she knows and Max is surprisingly compassionate. Matters come to a head when Natalia demands answers from Stevie – and, Stevie being Stevie, she provides them!
