POWER GAMES

WIN, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

Any­one who thought Howzat! Kerry Packer’s War was s a hard act to fol­low can rest easy. This is no lame se­cond in­stal­ment, stalment, it’s com­pul­sive view­ing. Power Games is the story of the ex­plo­sive, ruth­less and al­ready pow­er­ful me­dia mogul ul Sir Frank Packer ( Lachy Hulme), and the man who be­came me his tough­est ad­ver­sary, Ru­pert Mur­doch ( Pa­trick Bram­mall). Span­ning the years from 1960 to 1972, it can­vasses the pair’s bat­tle for con­trol of Aus­tralia’s news­pa­per and tele­vi­sion em­pires and the ten­sions it cre­ated within their own fam­i­lies. Also stars Ann Looby ( right with Hulme) as Florence Packer.
