This article investigates the ABC mini-series, Blue Murder’s (1995) representation of events in Sydney’s past with impressions of the present by a visit to the haunts of characters such as "Neddy" Smith, Roger Rogerson and Christopher Dale Flannery. True to the experience of these characters, "Blue Murder: A Re-Imagined History" takes us on a pub crawl through legendary crimes and post-industrial possibilities, marking Sydney as a product of both the historical and the fictional.
