MELISSA DOYLE returns to Television for exclusive Sky News interview with KYLIE MOORE-GILBERT


Sky News Australia has secured the world first exclusive interview with Kylie Moore-Gilbert, the Australian academic convicted and imprisoned in Iran for spying.

In this television event, Kylie shares her incredible story with highly respected journalist and interviewer Melissa Doyle, who joins Sky News for this special assignment.

The interview marks the first time Doyle has appeared on Television since her departure from Seven last year.

In September 2018, Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert had checked in to her flight home to Australia when she was arrested by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

Convicted of spying and sentenced to serve 10 years on espionage charges, she spent more than two years fighting for her freedom. Her 804 days behind bars included seven months in solitary confinement.

She was interrogated and beaten by guards, but refused to be broken. Now, for the first time, Kylie shares her inspirational story of survival.

Is she a spy? How did she survive her ordeal? What really happened behind the scenes to secure her release? How is she coping with the heartbreak of discovering her husband had an affair with one of her colleagues while she was in prison? And what will she do now she is free?

Melissa Doyle said:

“Kylie is one of the most remarkable women I have had the privilege of interviewing. Her experience will both frighten and shock you, her determination to survive will leave you in awe, but above all, her grace and strength will inspire you.

“I do not know how she survived years of hell – solitary confinement, starvation and the constant fear of what could happen next. Her dignity can only be admired.”

Escape From Iran: Kylie Moore-Gilbert premieres Tuesday 9 March, 7pm AEDT – Watch on Sky News on Foxtel and Sky News on WIN
