Nemesis on ABC – A dramatic inside story of ambition, betrayal and revenge. This landmark docuseries is a riveting account of the nine years of Coalition government, multiple leadership coups, internal wars over policy, three dramatic elections, and a global pandemic which turned Australian politics on its head.
The Turnbull Years
With Malcolm Turnbull installed as prime minister after bringing down Tony Abbott, hopes were riding high and so were the opinion polls. But as one of Turnbull’s allies warned, when you have stratospheric popularity it can only go one way.
This gripping episode takes us from the early euphoria through to the “week of madness” which saw the Liberal Party utterly consumed by another leadership spill in the full glare of the media.
In this dramatic episode, Malcolm Turnbull and key members of the government recall the highs and lows, from besting Donald Trump in a fiery dispute with the White House and the creation of marriage equality to the infamous “bonk ban” and the weaponising of climate policy.
When it comes to the leadership spill, key players take us “inside the room” where they describe their motivations and actions which saw another prime minister dispatched.
