User Reviews

 
Dramatic, informative and unsettling.
29 July 2020 | by dizzyrichSee all my reviews

This excellent BBC documentary shows the worrying influence of the Murdoch empire. Told in a reasoned and unsensational way, these three illuminating episodes are not (as one angry reviewer claims) "unwatchable" or "laughable" but in fact essential TV, highlighting the sinister forces at work in our society today.
