Did your history teacher lie to you? Did Abraham Lincoln in fact not believe that all men were created equal? Were the Aztecs actually slaughtered by the Spanish Conquistadors? And is Churchill really the man that people love to remember?
Exposing some of the biggest lies ever told and how they’ve been used over time, journalist and author Otto English explores how our present continues to be manipulated by the fabrications of the past. He looks at how so much of what we take to be historical fact is, in fact, fiction.
Setting out to redress the balance, English tears apart the lies propagated by politicians and think tanks, the grand narratives spun by populists and the media, the stories on your friend’s Facebook feed and the tales you were told in childhood. And, in doing so, reclaims the truth from those who have perverted it.
It’s time to set the record straight and expose everything you weren’t told in school and why you weren’t taught it! Join Otto English in conversation with award-winning international broadcaster, journalist and conference moderator Rajan Datar.
