S3 Ep1 Rex, the beat, and the bashing
10.03.2016 - By SBS True Stories
Late one night in 1992, Rex Robinson pulled his car into one of Adelaide’s most notorious beats. High beam on, Rex sees a man lying face down, motionless in the middle of the road. It’s the night that embroiled Rex in a vicious bashing case which made headlines and outraged the gay community, leaving Rex without a job and wishing he’d never gone to the police.
