Following the success of Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo, Paper Giants: Magazine Wars is the story of the golden years of the glossies.
Filled with humour, tragedy and outrageous tactics, Paper Giants: Magazine Wars charts the rise of cheque-book journalism in Australia from 1987-97; the age of celebrity power and Princess Di; of the paparazzi and AIDS; of media moguls and the two remarkable women who helped make them.
The two-part series shows us the beginnings of where we are
today - with an undiminished appetite for salacious stories, and journalistic ethics under the spotlight. Paper Giants: Magazine Wars is also a human story.
