C6 Fake History: Otto English
The Bath Festival 2022
From the myths of the Second World War to the self-serving legends of ‘great men’, fake history is everywhere. Journalist and author Otto English tears apart the lies propagated by politicians and think tanks, grand narratives spun by populists and the media as well as the stories on your friend’s Facebook feeds. He talks to Greg Ingham about reclaiming the truth from those who have perverted it.
