America’s Book of Secrets
Thursday, 9.30pm, History This US series, produced by documentarymaker Kevin Burns ( The Godfather Legacy), has copped some flak for being loose with the facts, but then the critics may well be bunch of sceptics. Judge for yourself. It certainly tackles some interesting subjects: cults, the drug wars, presidential assassins and the Freemasons, to name a few. Presidential Cover-Ups goes behind White House doors to see what goes on in the Oval Office. Do we really know what Richard Nixon was trying to hide with the Watergate cover-up? Did the Obama administration know more about the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi than it let on? Former advisers, historians and journalists have a shot at the answers.
