Reel History UK

Presented by Hugh K. David and Jenna Pateman, Reel History UK is an informative and engaging podcast exploring the presentation of historical events within pop culture ranging across film and television.

Each episode, our hosts focus on a chosen television show or movie property that may be based on or around important historical events.

From there, each episode discussion leads to the ultimate decision, is the chosen media property REAL History or REEL History?

The show is co-produced and published by 4DA Publishing and Bunkazilla UK.
