macOS - time machine lastest backup date/time

Does anyone know how to find out the last time machine backup time and date?

I found this article but the command doesn't not work.

https://superuser.com/questions/356901/ … ine-backup


defaults read /private/var/db/.TimeMachine.Results BACKUP_COMPLETED_DATE

Does not produce the same date as what is in the system preferences.

thanks

The command line interface tmutil has all information about Time Machine

Applescript:

do shell script "tmutil latestbackup"

The man page says  Requires root and Full Disk Access privileges but on my machine it works at least without adding with administrator privileges
