The phone hacking scandal that has engulfed Rupert Murdoch's media empire and rocked the British tabloid world began as a small trickle last spring. By summer, the story was splashed across headlines around the world.
It's a complicated story that spans nearly a decade and involves everyone from Murdoch, to British Prime Minister David Cameron, Scotland Yard and even the British Royal family.
Investigative reporter Lowell Bergman, puts all the pieces of the story together in a new documentary called "Murdoch's Scandal," which airs on PBS Frontline Tuesday, in a co-production with the CBC.
Bergman calls this a scandal of historic proportions and details the News Corp. owner's “fight of his life.” The film also profiles the whistle-blowers who uncovered the scandal — and the price they paid to bring it to light.
