she teases the audience through her brilliant narrative...

“A major shout out to producer margaret parker and her team for delivering a fantastic (i mean fantastic! ! ) hour. Margaret really did a sensational job all the way around, but her use of recreations was especially skillful and artful. The way she teases the audience through her narrative was also brilliant. She created an intensely wonderful whodunit that will hold the audience until the end. “

David Perrozi, Executive Producer 20/20 Presents Homicide


“Margaret is an exceptional producer – tireless and talented. Her ability to conceive and generate powerful, commercial stories is matched by her creative flair. She is a exemplary researcher and a wonderful writer with great flair as a film-maker.”

Hamish Thomson, Executive Producer Sunday Night
