The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

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.
