All propaganda is lies, 1941-1942
Secker & Warburg, 1998 - Political Science - 544 pages
On August 18, 1941, George Orwell joined the BBC's Overseas Service. After a crash training course, he was appointed a Talks Producer responsible for features, talks, and commentaries on the war, to be broadcast to India. He wrote at least 220 news commentaries broadcast to India, Malaya, and Indonesia, of which Orwell read 56. This volume shows that formal censorship was not as great a problem as has been supposed--although it obviously occurred, and Orwell's brushes with censors are shown in detail.
