Media Mayhem: Playing with the Big Boys in Media

    By

    In the 1980s and 1990s, the face of the Australian media changed forever. Highflying entrepreneurs like Alan Bond, Robert Holmes a Court, Ron Brierley and Christopher Skase competed with the family dynasties of Fairfax, Packer and Murdoch for a piece of the action.
