The Big Lie

Terry Carlyon200552:03

When the hired guns of British American Tobacco came to Australia to appeal a decision in favour of a terminally-ill wife and mother, they didn’t stop once they had the award overturned. They then set out to pursue the family of Rolah McCabe in order to cover their own legal costs in the case. Combining tense legal action with the highly-charged emotional fallout that is the legacy of those who put themselves in the sights of Big Tobacco, The Big Lie is an eloquent essay in deceit and corporate thuggery.
