Each brings their own perspective to bear on their family saga. The result is a rare insight into the fascinating underside of some of our most significant social figures.
Family Confidential takes us to the heart of some of our most important public figures, offering timely historic biography while also reminding us of the profound and complex relationships that lie at the heart of every family.
