Rivalry is a key part of our psychological make-up.  Face to Face chronicles how this basic human drive fuelled world-famous personalities to vie with one another, sometimes in a positive way but not always so.   Their complementary or contrasting profiles have led these men to go head to head in battles for power, profit and influence.  It has also led to bitterness in some cases and the formation of clans, allegiances and enmities of shareholders, media allies and employees.

This rivalry is extensively analysed.  How did it start?  What were the causes?  Was it real or cunningly orchestrated?  To what extent did truces, treachery, jealousy or injury play a part?  What were the repercussions, either positive or negative?
