The Clinton Affair
Saturday 8 December, 9pm
HISTORY’s six-part series The Clinton Affair, from Academy Award® and Emmy®-winning producer Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions and Emmy®-winning director Blair Foster, examines the biggest political scandal of a generation and its lasting impact on the United States. Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the impeachment proceedings of President Bill Clinton, the documentary chronicles the events leading up to the impeachment trial and explores the role of media, feminism and politics in this story of sex, power, lies and ideological warfare. Beginning Saturday 8th December, from 9pm, the limited documentary event unfolds over three consecutive nights and traces the twisted, intertwined series of events that led to the impeachment trial that set the nation on the path towards a more staunchly partisan political system. The series features arresting archival footage as well as comprehensive interviews with the people closest to the events including a timely, in-depth reflection on the topic with Monica Lewinsky.
