The Rise Of The Murdoch Dynasty

The Rebel Alliance (1x2)


Air date: Jul 21, 2020

An alliance forms, including star Hugh Grant, that is willing to take on the Murdoch empire, and a huge scandal threatens Rupert’s dream of passing on the family business to one of his children. This is the sensational story of the scandal that almost ruined Rupert Murdoch, and resulted in 'the most humble day' of his life. After Murdoch’s incredible rise, this episode charts his fast fall from grace that left him an isolated figure. It tells the story of how Murdoch’s huge political influence in the UK was finally challenged, revealing a closeness between Murdoch and politics that was suggested to distort democracy and eventually saw four living prime ministers face questioning at the Leveson Inquiry, changing British politics and press forever.
