The British Empire in BBC travel documentaries: investigating multimodal manipulation
Castaldi, J. 2021. The British Empire in BBC travel documentaries: investigating multimodal manipulation.
The path towards economic and social equality between Britain and ex-colonies, and between people within ex-colonies, can be arduous if the public opinion does not appreciate the extent of past colonial exploitation and its long-lasting effects. Indeed, recent opinion polls (YouGov, 2014, 2016, 2019) suggest that the British Empire is still seen in a favourable or neutral way by a significant part of the British population.
