This is the link to a very special exhibition at the British Library in London which is well worth a visit this summer. Moreover you with youth on your side (ieyou are under 18) get in free.
The Propaganda: Power and Persuasion exhibition explores “international state propaganda from the 20th and 21st centuries. From the eye-opening to the mind-boggling, from the beautiful to the surprising, posters, films, cartoons, sounds and texts reveal the myriad ways that states try to influence and persuade their citizens”. I have spoken to two people who have been been and they claim it is genuinely thought provoking. I intend to go this summer, and I wrmly recommend it to you.
Oh, finally the chap in the picture is Bert the Turtle – he was the face of US Civil Defence when nuclear war threatened in the 1950s and 1960s. You can watch the whole film here .
Duck and cover everyone.
