Nine wanted Murdoch doco
If ABC had not nabbed prized Murdoch doco, Nine was ready to swoop.
A prized BBC documentary on the Murdoch empire was on Nine’s wish-list before ABC secured the rights.
The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty, a three part doco which screened in the UK in July, examines Rupert Murdoch’s influence on world events and the dramatic personal battle for power. It has been described as “Succession with phone hacking and foam pies.”
ABC has secured the rights in Australia. But Nine sources confirmed to TV Tonight, if ABC had not exercised their option on the series, it would have swooped.
No airdate has yet been announced by ABC.
