    Reader comments on Horns and Halos

    Subject: Aired in Australia
    Date: Aug 31, 2003
    Sender: AnonPrevious | Next

    SBS just televised this doco and I found myself drawn in by its authenticity and immediacy of "being there" as events unfolded.
    Several times toward the end whenever a scene faded to black I though it had ended and we would just get a paragraph onscreen of events after the filming, but it kept going..
    Hatfield, having 2 convictions against him, ominously predicted a third which would land him in jail for life ("3 strikes and you're out") as the edition that revealed his sources is launched.
    It only took a month, and not having known anything of this before the doco, him taking his own life in preference to that outcome was incredibly heart-wrenching.
    The ending showed this so well with the publisher openly breaking down as the true loss hits him.
