About the event

Susannah Walker discusses the origins of Second World War propaganda posters and their impact on the public. During the Second World War both the government and people were wary of propaganda, which was seen as totalitarian, un-British and tainted by its role in the First World War. Sources as diverse as London Transport and Bovril produced advertising aimed at rousing the national spirit, but the biggest source was the army, which arguably produced some of the best-known and most controversial images of the war.
