Summary *This episode of Australian Story contains subject matter that may concern some viewers*Following the conclusion of the epic Dianne Brimble saga, the family speaks exclusively to Australian Story. In an Australian Story exclusive, the former partners of Dianne Brimble discuss their reaction to the dismissal in late April, of the manslaughter charge against Mark Wilhelm. Mark Brimble and David Mitchell speak candidly for the first time since the conclusion of the seven and a half year legal proceedings to determine the circumstances of Dianne's death."Seven and a half years of all this, amounted to the DPP deciding that he didn't want to press the say that we're angry about it is an understatement, an absolute understatement. It's an insult." - Mark Brimble, former husband of Dianne Brimble.When Dianne Brimble died mysteriously aboard the Pacific Sky cruise liner in 2002, her family was left to mourn the loss of a beloved mother, wife, sister and daughter.It also began a seven and a half year battle for answers by the two men who had shared her life. From 2006, Dianne Brimble's story became front page news - with the coronial inquest trying to establish how she died and how the drugs in her system got there.In 2008, one of the men - Mark Wilhelm - was charged with Dianne Brimble's manslaughter.In April this year, Mark Wilhelm walked away a free man, accompanied by the sympathetic comments of the presiding judge, who cited the "significant punishment (Wilhelm) has already suffered".In this edition, Dianne's former partners Mark Brimble and David Mitchell speak candidly about the effects of the past seven and a half years and how they intend to move on and forge positive legislative change.Producer: Claire ForsterExecutive Producer: Deborah Fleming
