Legendary Cop Brian ‘The Skull’ Murphy

Brian joined the police force in 1954, a time now known as either the good old days or the bad old days of policing, depending on whom you ask. He’s crossed paths with some of Australia’s most notorious criminals and been investigated for corruption himself, but Vicki Petraitis’ excellent book, ‘Once a Copper’ reveals some unexpected vulnerability behind the tough exterior. They both joined us in studio.
