The Berlusconi Show – BBC’s Documentary on Italy’s Prime Minister

Here is a very interesting and well-done BBC documentary by journalist Mark Franchetti. It aired on British TV on March 17.

Titled “The Berlusconi Show,” the documentary gives a general overview of Berlusconi’s life, career, political successes and failures, his troubles with justice, his affairs, his alleged ties with the Mafia and much more.

Due to BBC viewing restrictions out of the U.K., I’ve posted it in several parts. (Thanks to Net1News for posting this on their website)

Enjoy.
