Having previously covered historical lies from our country two years ago, Lucy Worsley is looking at the biggest historical fibs stateside.

She begins by looking at the myths surrounding the American Revolution, arguing that the Boston Tea Party was not actually a tea party and that the revolt is not the classic David versus Goliath story we have all been made to believe.

American History’s Biggest Fibs with Lucy Worsley is on BBC Four at 21.00.
