The big question How effective was propaganda in Britain in the 1914-18 war?
*
*
Can you save the Public Record Office’s reputation?!

The problem
*
* * The Public Record Office has a new Head of Exhibitions. This job includes organising outside speakers coming in to give talks.
* * The leading WWI historian, Hilary Lee, is coming to give a talk, but something has gone wrong. Dr Lee’s briefcase has been stolen! She has the plan for her talk in her pocket, but she had a collection of slides in her briefcase. She cannot illustrate her talk.
* * The Head of Exhibitions has come to you in desperation. He has given you the outline of what Dr Lee will be saying in her talk.
* * There is some good news. Dr Lee is not going to read out a script. She has some detailed planning points to help her stay on track. You can give her a new outline with some suggested sources to go in her slide show.
* * The bad news is she is due to talk in less than one hour! Good luck!
*

What you have to do:
* Your job is to search through the sources in this Gallery and:
* *
*  
* * * Select some sources that will support the points Dr Lee will make
* * * Note the sources in the outline of Dr Lee’s talk
* * * Write clear captions for each source explaining what it is, where it came from and when it was produced
* * * Dr Lee will not get a chance to look at these sources before the talk, so it would also be useful if you add a few notes on the reliability of the source (e.g. if its purpose was to get men to join up by saying that millions already had, then the figures may be a little exaggerated)
* * * Remember – You will not be able to find sources to support every point Dr Lee will make. Your job is to choose a selection of sources that will support some of her points and will interest the audience.
