Must see: HBO's The Fourth Estate...

As a loyal subscriber to the peerless New York Times, I’ve been glued the title’s fabulous coverage of the slow car crash that is the Trump Presidency.

HBO and award winning documentary maker, Liz Garbus, have produced the must watch film of the year; The Fourth Estate. This riveting and superb look behind the scenes during the paper’s reporting of the first months of Trump’s premiership is edge of the seat stuff.

It briefly aired on BBC2 earlier in 2018, but can still be viewed via YouTube and some VPN trickery. Seek it out, it may well become a landmark production as the White House sinks to new depths…
