- DURATION 3 x 60 mins
Hollywood is sometimes known as the “dream machine”. What it isn’t known for is getting the facts right. In Hollywood and history, Jem Duducu explores Hollywood’s more than a century, long fascination with the past, and how it portrays it to the movie going public.
Taking inspiration from his new book of the same name, this three part series takes you not only from the dawn of time, but also the dawn of cinema looking at some of the biggest movies in cinema history, which also happened to portray some of the most important moments in human history. Kings will rise, empires will fall and a lot of historical inaccuracies will be pointed out along the way.
