The Secret Archipelagos is a thriller about a young reporter's determination to uncover the truth.
Lauren is a young journalist from Sydney who's stuck covering the dog-on-a-skateboard kind of story. That is until her big break arrives when her editor Jerry sends her to Darwin to take over an assignment from senior journalist Fraser King. Lauren finds Fraser running scared – he only hands her a map and tells her, "There's something out there that shouldn't be there."
Lauren charters a plane and flies out into Australia's northern archipelagos to find an island filled with drug crops and a large freighter ship in what should be a deserted national park. When she arrives back in Darwin, Lauren is interrogated by an American man, Steven, who seems to know what she was looking for.
Back in Sydney, Fraser tells Lauren that Australia's northern archipelagos are infested with South-East Asian crime. Later that night Jerry finds Fraser dead – killed by gunshot wounds.
Steven tries to convince Lauren that the pilot made a mistake by flying into Indonesian territory and all she saw were Indonesian farmers. Not convinced, Lauren tracks Steven and discovers that he's an ASIS agent. She investigates, finding that the patrols that should be happening in the national park have stopped and the people she saw working the islands are asylum seekers who are trading six months labour for passage to Australia. Some of whom don't make it, as the freighter ship is an organ-harvesting ship run by a Cuban criminal.
As Lauren tries to find out what's going on and why it's being covered up, she is increasingly targeted by Steven who is hell-bent on stopping her. With people involved in the story starting to turn up dead, Lauren struggls to find out the truth about who's involved and why.
Archipelagos is a thriller of cat-and-mouse intrigue, self-doubt, escalating danger, resolve, and lethal repercussions as a result of a young reporter's determination to uncover a conspiracy that will shake a nation.
One hour television series (with potential for feature length screenplay).
When a passenger jet crashes on approach to Sydney Airport, the National Safety Board (NSB) recalls their most experienced investigator, Jack Brennan, to lead the accident investigation team.
Believing the event to be the work of terrorists, the Australian Security and Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) reassigns psychologist and human factors specialist Sam Taylor to the NSB. ASIO plans to use the accident as political justification for a military assault on extremist groups active in the region.
Jack soon discovers that the pilots shut down the wrong engine in response to an engine failure, however he and his team are at a loss to explain how this could happen. A flaw in the plane's turbine blades suggests that the engine design may have been at fault. Unfortunately the engineer who worked on the engines on their arrival in the country has secretly been flown to engine manufacturers' head offices in Canada.
As the investigation escalates, Sam uncovers vital information about the First Officer's eyesight which he failed to disclose for fear of losing his title of 'poster boy' with the airline. She now knows how a contact lens downed a multi-million dollar passenger jet.
