31 August 2020
The ABC has now confirmed Australian broadcast details for the 3-part BBC series, The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty.
Over the last 50 years, one man has played an unparalleled part in transforming British society. That man is Australian born Rupert Murdoch.
Feared and fêted by politicians, Murdoch has built the biggest media operation on the planet. His empire has given him extraordinary power and influence.
This is its story. It’s an electrifying study of the Murdoch dynasty, charting the ups and downs of an empire. From the ambition that fuelled its success, to the criminality that led to the closure of the News of the World, and the Leveson Inquiry. Ultimately, the empire is broken up. But there’s a powerful new ally in the White House.
