Propaganda Is Not A Dirty Word! with Clive Harris

This new presentation looks at the introduction, development and refinement of British Propaganda during the Great War. 

From the manipulation of the domestic press, through to the ingenious  influencing of neutral countries, this fascinating story of Britain's Propaganda war offers a number of memorable incidents in what is clearly an often overlooked aspect of the conflict.
