Dynasties: Families That Changed The World

Wednesdays at 7:30pm AEDT from January 8

Across four eye-opening episodes, Dynasties delves into the inner workings of the world’s most powerful and intriguing families. Each episode is built around a theme in which 6-8 families are explored. Every story is self contained, but an overarching narrative relevant to the theme ties them together, revealing stories about them from the late 19th century to today. Dynasties combines expert commentary with news archive to explore fame, its pitfalls and benefits of families who have lived their lives in the limelight. We delve into the past and present, tracing these inimitable dynasties from their sometimes humble origins all the way to their modern day successes and powerful presence across global politics (Bhutto, Gandhi/Nehru), cinema and music (Chaplin, Coppola, Iglesias), business (Rockefeller, Murdoch, Rothschild) and more.
