ClandesTime 020 - Weaponised Fiction

Tom Secker's latest episode, as he puts he: "This show is a commentary on several different works of cultural significance, primarily looking at how fiction can be used and is used to manipulate and condition public perceptions of past events. Alfred Hitchcock's Sabotage, Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent, BBC sitcom Yes, Prime Minister, Hollywood blockbuster Crimson Tide, James Bond reboot Casino Royale and the ubiquitous Spooks are all examined for their attempts to retell and remake history. I round off looking at two documents providing concrete proof that this is a real phenomenon."
