Oliver Emanuel & Rory MacLean with Gerard DeGroot HISTORY, TRUTH & THE SPACES IN-BETWEEN Good history can be mistaken for its faithfulness to the facts but purely factual history is often deadly dull and incomplete. The assumption is that facts are the opposite of lies, yet it's much more complicated. Join history professor Gerard DeGroot in discussion with Rory MacLean, historian and author of the (fictional) Pictures of You and playwright Oliver Emanuel, whose The 306: Dawn imagines the lives of British soldiers shot for cowardice.
