Grasswill, Helen

  • Occupation Journalist, Producer, Television Journalist


Helen Grasswill has more than thirty years of experience as a journalist, author, editor and television program-maker. She was part of the foundation team to produce the Australian Broadcasting Corporation series Australian Story.

In 2005 she won an award for the story ‘The Gathering Storm’. The story documented the involvement between a priest and a schoolgirl and his rise to become Australia’s most senior Anglican bishop. The case notoriously led to the resignation of Governor-General Peter Hollingworth. Grasswill spent years sourcing documents to verify every claim made by the victim, most of which were not on the public record.
