Five years after the bombing of the Sydney Hilton Hotel, 2SER FM Sydney produced an hour-long radio program looking back on the case against the accused and exploring the theory that the attack was a conspiracy.

The retrospective program raises allegations that the three members of the Ananda Marga sect who were accused of the bombing were in fact framed by ASIO and the NSW Police Force. By 1983 the three men had been in prison for almost five years, but had not actually been charged with the crime.

The program begins and ends with a disclaimer stating that the allegations in the program cannot be substantiated.
