Time Machine Logs under Sierra

I often like to check on the Time Machine backup system to see what's going on.

Prior to macOS Sierra, I would open the Console app and filter on "backupd" (the Time Machine backup process) which would show me the goings-on of the backup process.

That is no longer possible as the entire way information is logged has been changed under Sierra.

What do I need to do to see the messages from Backupd under Sierra?

Why not just open the TM folder itself and see what was done last.

I want to monitor the process, not the results.

For example, the log used to indicate for the files were being selected (deep scan vs fsevent data), how much space the backup will take, whether prior backups are being deleted before the current backup starts, exactly which backups are deleted afterwards, etc...
