Murder in the Pacific

Murder in the Pacific is a cinematic three-part series that tells the incredible story of the Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior, and the bombing that in 1985 sent it to the bottom of Auckland Harbour with the loss of the ship’s photographer.


Recounted by the Warrior’s crew of Greenpeace activists, the police investigators who were tasked with solving the crime and the bombers themselves, ‘Murder In The Pacific’ unfolds like a crime thriller with a cast of spies, politicians, journalists and a 21 year-old meet-and-greet girl who changed the course of nuclear testing and environmentalism across the world.
