2:25 NZ Crime: David Tamihere and the Swedish backpacker murders​

Just over 30 years ago, two Swedish tourists went missing in the Coromandel during a tramping trip. 

David Tamihere was convicted in 1990 of the murders of Urban Hӧglin and Heidi Paakkonen - and served 20 years - but he has always maintained his innocence.

Last month, it was announced that Tamihere's murder convictions have been referred back to the Court of Appeal.

We speak to investigative reporter Donna Chisholm, who has covered the story in depth throughout the years.

3:35 Witness History

Germany had suffered a massive defeat and its war crimes were laid bare. For decades after the war the blame was laid squarely with Hitler, his Nazi party, and the paramilitary organisation the SS. But in 1995 an exhibition about the role of the German army, the Wehrmacht, during the Second World War became a turning point in Germany's reassessment of its Nazi past. Lucy Burns talks with the curator of that exhibition Hannes Heer.
