The sensational 1866 murders on the Maungatapu track, south-east of Nelson, gripped the nation. On 12 and 13 June, five men were held up and brutally killed.

Part One: The Slayings, opening 24 June, tells the story of the murders and profiles the four wretched men who carried out the crimes. The ‘Burgess Gang’, as the band of career criminals, were called, eyed the rich pickings in the South Island goldfields – and became ruthless in their robberies.
