Johns Hopkins University: strange goings on downunder

This is as odd a story as I have ever had to tell.

As George Negus said in the introduction to the half-hour report on SBS Dateline:

When Australian medical entrepreneur Peter Osborne became involved with a representative of Johns Hopkins University in the United States and promoted a new online health care system for Australia with him, he thought his future looked rosy. Now, several years later he is facing financial ruin, governments in Australia have been misled and there are serious allegations of impropriety leveled against the project. SBS business reporter Peter Martin investigates a corporate intrigue that stretches across three continents.
