This unedited, silent broadcast footage from the Nine Network shows Marjorie Gillespie walking up from the beach.

Rumoured at the time to be Holt’s lover, Gillespie was one of the last people to see him alive.

She was at Cheviot Beach when Holt disappeared from view under the waves. Gillespie’s presence at the scene of the tragedy was not initially reported by the police.
