This Week On Sunday Night


It remains one of the most baffling cases in Australian criminal history. And as it unfolded, William Tyrrell’s mother, Karlie, watched in silent horror.

For the first-time, Karlie Tyrrell speaks about the disappearance of her son, who vanished from his foster grandmother’s home in September, 2014.

One minute he was playing in the yard in his favourite Spiderman suit. And the next, he was gone without a trace, taken from the quiet cul-de-sac at Kendall, near Port Macquarie in NSW.

At first everybody hoped William had just wandered off, but it soon became apparent he had been abducted by a person or persons’ unknown.

Since his disappearance, there have been countless news reports about the case but they haven’t ever told the whole story about his life until now.

Sunday Night returns for its milestone 10th season with this special report as Karlie speaks to Melissa Doyle and answers the malicious rumours that she was somehow responsible for William’s abduction.

A million-dollar reward is still on offer for information that leads police to William, who will be seven in June.


We are well and truly in the grip of the digital age. We are turning into a society of mindless zombies staring at our phones. Turns out there's a reason for it… we're being hooked. Like digital heroin our devices are turning us into addicts, purposely targeting the same area of our brain affected by drugs like cocaine and heroin.

Screen Addiction

Take a moment to think about how many times you check your phone on a daily basis. The answer will surprise and shock you. And what's even more shocking is that apps like Instagram, Facebook and Angry Birds are being specifically produced in order to make you addicted.

SUNDAY NIGHT returns this Sunday at 8.45pm on Seven and 7PLUS.
