Oscars: 'Real life' films face criticism

Help

Three of the films up for a best picture Oscar this year Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty and Argo are films based on true stories and real personalities.

They have each been charged with misrepresentation, either straying from the facts, or inventing scenes.

Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
