Black Hands

On the morning of June 20, 1994, five members of the Bain family were found murdered in their suburban Dunedin home. It remains one of New Zealand’s most controversial cases, and the atrocity has captured a nation.

Now, more than 25 years on, this must-see drama event goes inside one of the most infamous New Zealand mass-murders, telling the story of each family member in the month leading up to their deaths.

TVNZ 1’s Black Hands is a bold new take on the “true-crime” genre. Based on Martin van Beynen’s record-breaking podcast of the same name, the captivating series will focus on the why rather than the how, leaving viewers to make up their own minds as to who was more likely to be responsible.
