Television Under the Swastika: Inside the Third Reich

Legend has it that television began in the United States in the 1950s - but in reality its origins hark back much further. Nazi leaders, determined to beat Great Britain and the U.S. to be the world's first television broadcaster, began Greater German Television in 1935. Making use of film footage discovered in the catacombs of the Berlin Federal Film Archive, Television Under the Swastika is a fascinating look at the world's first television broadcast network. It explores both the technology behind this new medium and the programming the Nazis put on it. Interviews with high-ranking Nazis as well as "ordinary" people on the street, cooking shows, sporting events, cabaret acts and teleplays are some of the stunning finds seen here - propaganda yes, but quite entertaining, and require [...]

German Theater of Protest [electronic resource]: 1918-1938, the Art of Expressionism

Loading...
"German theater of the years between the two world wars, often considered part of the European "Expressionist" movement, was, in its most inventive aspects, a theater of opposition. It was a theater of protest against the values of the society that had prosecuted World War One, against bourgeois smugness, and then against the Germans' acceptance of the authoritatianism of National Socialism. The plays from which scenes are presented here are "Gas" by Georg Kaiser, "Hoopla! Such is Life!" by Ernst Toller, and "The Private Life of the Master Race" by Bertolt Brecht."--Container.

Germany Today

Loading...
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "This is the story of a people desolate in defeat, who found the way back with the help of the military force that defeated them. This is the story of the role played by the United States Army in the rebirth of West Germany. "Germany Today" is an documentary of a vast reconstruction job. A cycle has come full turn. The Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces which helped defeat Germany is hailed now by free Germans as friend and protector. No other force in military history has done so much to put a conquered nation back on its feet as the United States Army. Because the U.S. Army has been a bulwark, West Germany remains democratic -- a front line for this nation's security. As the film concludes, the narrator says, ' [...]

The New German Army

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "Appearing in the film is West German chancellor, Dr. Konrad Adenauer. In flashback form, using captured German film of World War II vintage, this chapter traces the rise of the German nation, from the bitter depression days of the 1930s, through the rise of the Nazi party to the infamous "Blitzkrieg" of Sept. 31, 1939 - the invasion of Poland.

The postwar partition of Germany is shown, and viewers are shown the famed, "Berlin Airlift" of 1949. An important plank in the founding platform of the NATO nations is the creation of a German Army. The addition of a free West Ge [...]

Operation Friendly Hand

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.; "The subject of today's episode is an unusual one. You could say it's the story of two families and of their effects on one another, or it might be called the story of a soldier and a girl, which is certainly not unusual. What gives today's Big Picture its distinction as the portrayal of our army as it fulfills its functions in the Cold War, helping to maintain the fragile peace through might, and strengthening the bonds of friendship among the free nations of the world through kindness."--Transcript.

Soldier in Berlin

From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. "The impression that a young Corporal in the Army gets while on active duty in Berlin is vividly related in the first program of Series VI of THE BIG PICTURE. Being stationed in a small area within the "Iron Curtain" places a great deal of responsibility on the Army personnel, but allows them to see the city during free time. This picture gives the viewer a chance to see all of Berlin through the eyes of a GI serving his country there.""--National Archives and Records Administration.
