Ploughed through five of this six part docuseries regarding the fraud/scam of the McDonalds Monopoly game ,that ran from 1989-2001. Amazing story which really does defy belief. Last one to watch tomorrow.

Take a look. It's on Sky Channel 114 at present.
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

Will give it a spin.

I enjoyed* the film Laundromat with Meryl Streep about corporate fraud and Panama accounts. I think you'll feel suitable angered if you find it.

Only got through the first episode.

It was good but was badly padded out.

Didn't fancy sitting through another five eps so moved on to something else (The Devil Next Door on NF - about John Demanjuek - very, very good)
