The latest exhibition to open at the British Library is Propaganda: Power and Persuasion, a groundbreaking display of international state propaganda of the 20th and 21st centuries, from Uncle Sam's famous pointing finger, through Nazi hate to Potato Pete and the Green X Code. I love this daft Chinese film poster for The White-Haired Girl (1950). How to dance ballet holding a rifle!! Brits call this sort of thing "public information films". Only nasty foreigners dish out propaganda. The exhibition runs, skips and jumps until 17 September. Bad news is the price: £9 for adults. Under 18s are free (CLICK).
