"The Dictator's Playbook" Begins January 9

Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

From Mussolini to Saddam Hussein, dictators have had a profound effect on the 20th century. How did they seize and wield power? What forces rose up against them or resisted them in secret? How did they finally come to the bitter end? This series answers those questions in six immersive hours, each a revealing portrait of brutality and power.

Wednesdays, beginning January 9, at 9:00 p.m. on Nine PBS.
