Lincoln did not believe all men were created equal.

The Aztecs were not slaughtered by the Spanish Conquistadors.

And Churchill was not the man that people love to remember.

Taking the ten biggest lies from history and looking at the people who propagated them, social commentator and expert historian Otto English shows how our past has been bent and broken, used and abused over time to fit the ends of some of the world's most powerful people.

Whether it's Donald Trump, Kim Jong-Il or Aung San Suu Kyi, the media or people in your newsfeed, Fake History explores the ways in which everything we think we know is shaped and sold back to us as 'lessons from history'. From creating nation myths and forging 1984-style imaginary wars to how apologies can alter perceptions and how we can even dramatically shape our own image, Otto English sets out to redress the balance and to reclaim history from those who seek to pervert it.

Fake History is an alternative history of the world that you weren't taught in school.

Taking the ten biggest lies from history and looking at the people who propagated them, social commentator and expert historian Otto English shows how our past has been bent and broken, used and abused over time to fit the ends of some of the world's most powerful people.
