The Green Mill Murder (#103H) Duration: 56:20 STEREO TVPG-V

Phryne, gorgeous in her sparkling evening gown, had thought she would dance the night away at the hottest dancehall in town, the Green Mill. That was before death spoiled the evening. In jazz-mad 1920s Melbourne, Phryne finds there are hidden perils lurking in the smoky shadows - like a mystery man from her past - and it takes all her ingenuity, and her rusty flying skills, to unravel the trail of blackmail and murder. Directed by Kate Dennis and guest stars Toby Schmitz, Deni Hines, Wendy Hughes, Arthur Angel and Simon Lyndon.

Directed by Tony Tilse and guest stars Jack Finsterer, Talia Zucker, Robert Grubb, Renai Caruso and Penne Hackforth-Jones.

Ultimately, though, it's her stealth and wit that solve the crime - and all for the price of a song. . . . Directed by David Caesar and guest stars Kat Stewart, Tim Draxl, Brian Lipson and Adam Schmerl.
