Selling Ideologies and Propaganda

Selling Ideologies and Propaganda

In this programme, we encounter the ultimate weapons wielded in the Cold War – propaganda and disinformation. Tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union are underpinned by their fundamentally opposing ideologies of Capitalism and Communism. This is an engaging investigation of the prevailing propaganda themes and messages over the course of the Cold War and the role played by mediums like film, television and print media.
