Fake News: A True History

1 x 60 HD
Broadcaster:  BBC

Fake news is never out of today's headlines but it has been raking in cash and wreaking havoc long before our own confused, uncertain times.


Ian Hislop looks back at 200 years of Fake News and its consequences – from Victorians on the moon to 21st century deepfake.


Ian mines history to identify what motivates fake news - from profit, power and politics to prejudice, paranoia and propaganda – as well as to try to figure out what to do about it.
