December 10, 2023 – Stan, Australia’s unrivalled home of original productions, continues its investigatory documentary slate with the Stan Original Documentary Revealed: Ben Roberts-Smith Truth On Trial now streaming, only on Stan. 

The explosive feature-length documentary Ben Roberts-Smith Truth On Trial follows Nick McKenzie and Chris Masters’ quest to uncover the truth behind rumours that Australia’s most decorated living soldier, Ben Roberts-Smith, committed war crimes in Afghanistan and is a war criminal.

Produced and directed by Dora Weekley, Ben Roberts-Smith Truth On Trial traces the origins of Nick McKenzie and Chris Masters’ groundbreaking and controversial reports in 2018 and the subsequent stories on 60 Minutes, to Ben Roberts-Smith taking them to court in a defamation trial that ended in 2023.

Over five harrowing years, their dogged and determined pursuit of the truth into what occurred in Afghanistan between 2006-2013 runs parallel with military and police inquiries. Not only do they uncover a toxic warrior culture within the regiment but they also discover that Australia's most venerated soldier, Ben Roberts-Smith, is not who the public thinks he is. 

When Roberts-Smith launches Australia's biggest defamation trial against them, the onus of proving the truth is on them. Soldiers are subpoenaed to testify and break their code of silence. With everything on the line, the truth is laid bare. 

Created in collaboration with 60 Minutes, The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, Revealed: Ben Roberts-Smith Truth On Trial is the seventh title in Stan’s landmark Revealed documentary slate, following Danielle Laidley: Two Tribes, The Cape, Reefshot, Trafficked, Amongst Us - Neo Nazi Australia and No Mercy, No Remorse. 

The Stan Original Documentary Revealed: Ben Roberts-Smith Truth On Trial is directed and produced by Dora Weekley for Stan. Stan Executive Producers are Cailah Scobie and Amanda Duthie. 

The Stan Original Documentary Revealed: Ben Roberts-Smith Truth On Trial is now streaming only on Stan.
