The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty, BBC2

As you will know, if you are a regular reader of this column, I’m a sucker for a person based biographical documentary. So when I saw BBC2 were running a three parter on Rupert Murdoch called The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty, I was intrigued. I’ve now watched the first two episodes and although they were an enjoyable watch, did I learn a lot about Rupert Murdoch that I didn’t already know? Not a lot to be honest, apart from a bit of detail about the lives of the Murdoch children and heirs.
