Period Italian Crime Drama L’Ora Now Streaming on SBS On Demand



Ten part period Italian Crime Drama L’Ora is now streaming on SBS On Demand; Beginning in October 1958 the series tells how the Sicilian newspaper L’Ora denounced the mafia and the area’s pervasive organised crime.

A bomb exploded in front of the editorial offices shortly after; the daily reappeared two days later with the headline: “The Mafia may threaten us, our investigation continues”.

This series, which was inspired by those incidents, is set in Palermo in the late 1950s and early 1960s and follows a newly appointed editor in chief and his team of fearless reporters as they concentrate their investigation on organised crime and its influence on every aspect of society.

All ten episodes are available at once. In Italian with English subtitles.
