DRUNK HISTORY

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.55PM, SBS 2

The premise of this show sounds a bit silly – history buffs get plas­tered and re­count in­ter­est­ing mo­ments from times gone by, acted out by a cast of fa­mil­iar faces. But it’s strangely com­pelling. This week fo­cuses on jour­nal­ism, ex­plor­ing the boom era of news in the late 1800s to the rise of po­lit­i­cal car­toons and the role of for­eign cor­re­spon­dents. Michael Cera, Ja­son Alexan­der and El­lie Kem­per help por­tray the drunken ram­blings.
