Expert Vlog: Coronavirus and the British Wartime Propaganda Playbook
Political communications expert Dr. Colin Alexander explores the UK government's public communications during the coronavirus crisis
In this video Dr. Colin Alexander, a Senior Lecturer and researcher in political communications in our School of Arts and Humanities, explores the UK government's public communications during the coronavirus crisis. Dr. Alexander argues that much of the government's strategy mirrors the wartime propaganda 'playbook' that was developed during the First and Second World Wars. The video discusses the twenty 'plays' that Dr. Alexander's research has thus far identified.
