'Olympus Has Fallen' and 'White House Down'

Posted on Wednesday 17th April 2013

Professor Scott Lucas appeared on the Radio Four Today Programme to discuss Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down - two upcoming films that 'break a post-9/11 taboo' by showing the destruction of the White House.

If you want to listen to the discussion, in which Scott suggests that the films reflect America questioning its status as the centre of power, it is available iPlayer Radio until 22nd April: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01rv8ds (the segment is at 2hrs 20mins).
