Love, Hate & Pro­pa­ganda: World War II Tues­day, 8.30pm, His­tory

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

In 1941: Meet the En­emy, the third episode of this six-part se­ries, the use of pro­pa­ganda for the first time by all sides in a war comes un­der the mi­cro­scope. Mes­sages — in­clud­ing half-truths and out­right lies — were broad­cast through cin­e­mas, posters, ra­dio ad­dresses, songs, speeches and ral­lies. There was no avoid­ing them and they mostly achieved their aim: to sway a na­tion and in­spire love, de­vo­tion, anger and ha­tred. .
