Fake News Wales

Academics and journalists explore the impact of disinformation in Wales

The Open University needed a film for their course in Linguistics to explore students to the concept of fake news, particularly its effect in Wales and on Welsh politics and society.

“Working with Hamlett Films again on our video about 'fake news' in Wales was both very rewarding and enjoyable. The final film came out extremely well, and its mix of interview and analysis will provide an excellent teaching resource for our students.”

Who better than Will Hayward, Welsh affairs editor, amongst others leaders in the field to flesh out the contentious issues of this corrosive topic and help students learn. The result is both engaging and a call to action not only for students, but all of us.
