With Kerry Packer at the helm and a galaxy of top stars, Channel Nine ruled the airwaves, consistently winning the ratings and fostering a unique esprit de corps within its ranks. The network was conspicuous for its success, notorious for its arrogance and indisputably ‘the one’, yet within a few short years it went from front-runner to also-ran with rock bottom morale, mass redundancies and a resurgent opposition by former Channel Nine executives out for revenge. Where does the blame lie? Stone tells the story with one staggering revelation after another with a result of a real-life drama far more riveting that anything on the small screen. A must for media history students and buffs.
