Murdoch fans who have tired of the false intimacy of following him on Twitter are in for a treat; Southern Star Entertainment have announced the production of a four-hour programme for Australian television about the bedevilled media tycoon.

Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch Story will focus on the period between 1960-1975, when Rebekah Brooks was just a twinkle in Murdoch's eye and his attention was instead focused on a feud with fellow Aussie media moguls Frank Packer and his son Kerry. Expect fisticuffs.

There is no word yet on whether Power Games will be screened in the UK.
