WORLD EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

CAPTIVE

 To his family and friends Gene Bristow was an unassuming, hardworking hobby farmer. But his life was a façade. In truth, Bristow, 54, was a monster, consumed with thoughts of depravity. It seems he craved sexual gratification, and he devised an evil plan to lure a young woman to his remote South Australian property and keep her as his captive. As Tara Brown reports, his scheme was as meticulous as it was wicked, except for one thing. He picked the wrong target. The ingenuity of the Belgian backpacker (who is now 26) and her sheer will to live meant that when evil collided with good there would only be one winner. On 60 MINUTES, for the first time, she speaks publicly about her ordeal and inspiring bravery.

Reporter: Tara Brown
