NEON is a different way of sharing historical knowledge. NEON takes a pop culture phenomenon and turns it on its head by revealing lesser known facts, real-life events and history behind your favourite Netflix shows, movies or video games. From how the A-Team took inspiration from Vietnamese history and resistance leaders, to the Aryan purity and Harem breeding programs behind the Handmaid’s Tale. Even some of the most successful video games – Assassins Creed, God of War, and Fortnite – are steeped in history. NEON has already uncovered historical references in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Black Panther, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, The Greatest Showman and the musical, Hamilton. Presented by Jem Duducu Produced by Dan Morelle
