Magazine Wars tells the story of two women, Nene King and Dulcie Boling, who started a circulation war that re-wrote the rules of journalism in Australia.
Flamboyant deputy editor Nene King storms out of New Idea to become editor of Womens Day, determined to overthrow the immaculate queen of womens magazines, Dulcie Boling.
The new journalism was a potent mix of celebrities, gossip, clairvoyants, paparazzi and gave rise to cheque book journalism in Australia.
The Birth Of Cleo explores early 1972, when Ita Buttrose and Kerry Packer, got together to create a magazine that became one of the most dramatic sensations in Australian publishing history. The result was a magazine that led the way in articulating for women a new way of thinking about themselves and their place in cultural Australia. Filled with intelligence, wit, and a go for it attitude, the fledgling Cleo took off on its first issue, taking Kerry, Ita, and a hand-picked bunch of iconoclastic staffers along for the ride. The drama of early Cleo is a Camelot story, of the best and the brightest on a quest for something they’re not entirely sure of.
