An Australian television crew flew into Sydney last night, relieved to be home after two weeks in a Beirut jail.
But their freedom has come at a cost for Brisbane mother Sally Faulkner and the two men directly involved in the botched child recovery mission.
Relief and celebration is what the 60 Minutes crew must be feeling, on home soil at last.
"It's just so good to be home, that's all I can say," says 60 Minutes reporter Tara Brown.
After two weeks behind bars, their freedom was sweet.
They were met by news cameras and a barrage of questions.
$1 million reportedly changed hands to get the crew and mother Sally Faulkner out of a Beirut jail.
A document has emerged showing Channel Nine helped fund the operation. It shows a wire transfer of $69,000 was given to a child recovery team.
But Ms Faulkner's had to pay a higher price -- forced to give up custodial rights of her two children to her estranged husband.
And the men hired for the recovery mission remain behind bars in Lebanon.
The family of British national and member of the child recovery agency hired to retrieve the children from Lebanon, Adam Whittington, just want justice.
"They've just walked away from him and yet they employed him," says Mr Whittington's father, David Whittington.
The network which broadcasts 60 Minutes has launched an internal inquiry to investigate how their storytellers became the story.
