In April 2010, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is airing a six part documentary series about the role propaganda played during World War II, featuring newsreels, posters, speeches, rallies, songs, and radio. The documentary series promises to be a series on "the art of mass persuasion" aimed at today's "media-savvy generation."

I am glad I found this because it looks to be quite interesting and well done, especially as it looks at both Axis and Allied propaganda from the Second World War. The way I found this, incidentally, was because the "further reading" list for Episode 2: 1939/1940 Selling War happens to link our BDM History website as one of the recommended pages for additional reading.
