Next Episode of Nuremberg: Nazis on Trial is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
In the aftermath of World War Two, the Allies sought to bring the aggressors to justice. How did the surviving Nazi leaders give account for their actions? Nuremberg: Nazis on Trial is a BBC documentary film series consisting of three one-hour films that re-enact the Nuremberg War Trials of Albert Speer, Hermann Göring and Rudolf Hess. They were broadcast on BBC Two in 2006 to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the trials.
Episode One focuses on Nazi Albert Speer, who used his charisma to, according to some, fool the court into a lighter sentence than he deserved. Episode One questions whether the "Nazi who said sorry", whose actions were the most far reaching and significant of the trial, was a troubled soul seeking forgiveness of the German people or the mastermind of a cynical strategy that fooled the world?
Episode Two looks at the trial of the Nazi's top soldier, Hermann Goering, and how it turned into a battle for his legacy with the German people. Episode Two questions whether Hitler's chosen successor could succeed where he had failed by re-igniting Nazi pride from the witness box.
Episode Three details the trial of fanatical Nazi Rudolf Hess, whose trial was marked by his increasingly bizarre and paranoid behavior. Episode Three explores the mind of one of the most fanatical of all Nazis and the insight that gives into the psychology of dictatorship.
