'No grudges' : Peter Mickelberg

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 9 March, 2012 - 7:22 AM
9's Great Mint Swindle has been given the Mickelberg tick of approval.

Peter Mickelberg says he holds 'no grudges' over the wrongful conviction of him and his brothers Ray and Brian over the theft of 48 gold bars. Peter told Steve Mills that 9's 'The Great Mint Swindle' has healed old wounds and allowed him to move on.

Blog comments Your Say

  • I believe astounding jewel of the show was not about the crime and their arrest, it demonstrated the profound magnitude of the human heart for forgiveness for the police officer who was instrumental in their pain and loss thru injustice

  • I watched this show last night and enjoyed it. I didn't really know much about this case as I was a teenager when this was happening. I remember it was all over the News and just assumed like most people that the Mickleberg's were probably guilty. Not anymore. I feel for these guys as their lives were ruined over the swindle. Yes, they did a naughty thing with the fake nugget and have paid for it by going to jail. It sure shed some light on why the "Silver Fox" met his end. It was a bit of a history lesson anyway and good to see they have been cleared. The big question is "Where is the gold"?

  • I watched The Great Mint Swindle last night. Worst acting I have seen. Painful to watch. The producers should hang their heads in shame for making such a low quality piece of rubbish.

  • Great to see 9 pick up a local yarn and turn it into quality aussie tv! I'll be watching tonight.

  • Obviously, the means to an end does matter, that is if we are pursuant of a civil and just society.
