INTRODUCING – Season 4: Snowball
Play • 4 min
In 2006, Greg Wards was your average Kiwi backpacker on an overseas adventure in the UK, working hard, playing harder — and falling head-over-heels in love.

After a whirlwind international romance, Greg married Lezlie Manukian in New Zealand. Their new life started out by setting up a small business north of Auckland.

But a snowball had started to roll the day Greg met Lezlie Manukian. It wasn't long before this ball of chaos gathered pace and crushed Greg and his family.

Ten years on, Greg's younger brother Ollie takes up the case begun by his amateur PI Dad and goes on the hunt. Across three continents and over seven episodes — with many twists, turns and WTF moments — Ollie goes on a mission to unravel a quirky and baffling love fraud.

Who is Lezlie Manukian — and why did she con his family? Is this the first time this has happened? Can he track her down and finally get some answers?

This series of Unravel is released on September 3.

5. The Great Escape
Todd Russell was stripped of his anonymity before he’d even emerged after 14 days trapped underground by the 2006 Beaconsfield mine rockfall. Elation was quickly replaced by frustration as the media pursuit and public attention became overwhelming.

The Night Stalker
It’s May 30, 1985, in Burbank, California. Spring is turning to summer, and the wide streets in the San Fernando Valley are lined with their signature palm trees. A 42 year old woman named Carol Kyle is at home with her 11 year old son. She doesn’t know yet that there is a man in her neighbourhood, driving a stolen car.  At some stage during the night, in the shadow of darkness, this man enters her home. At gunpoint, he binds Carol’s son with handcuffs and ransacks their house, demanding she tell him where her most valuable items are hidden.  Once he has collected a number of valuable goods, he rapes Carol, ordering her not to look at him while shouting threats at her. She complies.  When he is finished with Carol, he retrieves the little boy and binds him to her mother with handcuffs.  Then, he flees the scene.  Both Carol and her son survive this attack.  They are lucky.  So far that year, the Night Stalker as he will come to be known, has killed six innocent civilians. The year before, he killed two others. The youngest being a nine year old girl.  He is in the midst of one of the most destructive murder crime sprees in American history. But he isn’t like your text book serial killer. He is a serial rapist, kidnapper, pedophile and burglar, murdering some victims while letting others go.  For those who survive, they will never forget his face. It is the face of a monster.    CREDITS Guest: Detective Gil Carillo Host: Jessie Stephens Audio Producer: Ian Camilleri Producer: Gia Moylan   CONTACT US Tell us what you think of the show via email at   Join our closed Facebook community to discuss this episode.

Agafia Lykova - the woman who's lived alone in the wilderness for 70 years
When she was born, Agafia's father had become convinced that their family was being hunted by the Russian government, so he had packed up the whole family and escaped into the Siberian wilderness - hundreds of kilometres from any other humans. Agafia is now 76, the rest of her family has died, and she is still living - alone - in the tiny hut her father built back in the 1940s. She has only left her home a total of six times in her entire life, and if not for being discovered by chance in the 80s, nobody would ever even have known she was there.  If you want to see Agafia performing for the camera, start by watching these 2 videos:  VICE documentary: RUSSIA TV documentary: Read this stuff: Read this excellent article from Smithsonian magazine: If you can track down a copy of Vasily Peskov’s book about the Lykov family, apparently it’s excellent: Read about the influencer who put Agafia’s life at risk by flouting social distancing rules during the pandemic… And you can go to Google Maps and see exactly where she lives:,88.4183531,15z/data=!3m1!4b1 RECCOS: Watch 'I Care A Lot' on Amazon Prime: Read the Forbes article about Britney's (lack of) wealth: See for privacy information.
