Meet Harvey Matusow - 'America's most notorious liar'

They called him 'America's most notorious liar'. Harvey Matusow was once a professional witness in Senator Joe McCarthy's communist witch hunts, and then later admitted his testimony was false.

But this extraordinary character later came to the UK and his archives ended up at the University of Sussex. Now a one-man show is now being performed in his name.

Andy Dickenson speaks to Diarmuid Hester and Doug Haynes from the university, as well as actor and writer Robert Cohen.

A lecture 'Who is Harvey Matusow' will take place tomorrow and the performance 'The Trials of Harvey Mostow' on Wednesday at the Latest Music Bar, Brighton.
