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 [...]

The Trial of Adolf Eichmann

Loading...
Adolph Eichmann, who devised the "Final Solution," the attempt to exterminate the Jews, was the most hated of the Nazis. His 1961 trial, held in an Israeli courtroom and broadcast around the globe, was a benchmark event in the historiography of the Holocaust, especially in Israel where the trial proved a watershed experience for survivors and citizens of the new Jewish state. Employing new video and broadcast technologies, the trial was also a milestone in media and journalism coverage. This absorbing, comprehensive new documentary features detailed accounts of Eichmann's capture, the drama in the courtroom and behind the scenes, and reactions to the trial from around the world (as concentration camp survivors broke down giving their evidence, Eichmann sat impassive & protesting his [...]

Sick Around the World

Loading...
"Four in five Americans say the U.S. health-care system needs "fundamental" change. Can the U.S. learn anything from the rest of the world about how to run a health-care system, or are these nations so culturally different from us that their solutions would simply not be acceptable to Americans? FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines first-hand the health-care systems of other advanced capitalist democracies -- UK, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan -- to see what tried and tested ideas might help us reform our broken health-care system."--Frontline web site.

The Good Soldier

Loading...
In the decade preceding World War I, two wealthy, handsome couples--English Captain Edward Ashburnham and his wife Leonora, and American John Dowell and his wife Florence--meet at a German spa and forge an immediate bond. Through nine seasons at various spas, the splendid foursome lives elegant, perfect lives. But nothing is as it seems. As John says at one point, "My wife and I knew the Captain and his wife Mrs. Ashburnham as well as was possible to know anybody. And yet we knew nothing about them at all." The film explores the power games, class snobbery, sexual lies, and lack of intimacy that boil beneath the placid, pristine exteriors the upper classes show the world. The story is presented in flashback, a literary technique Madox Ford helped popularize.

Fall of Eagles

Loading...
In the 19th century, the major European powers had gone to great lengths to maintain a balance of power throughout Europe, resulting by 1900 in a complex network of political and military alliances throughout the continent. Beginning in 1815, the Holy Alliance between Prussia, Russia, and Austria formalized what had been a strictly familial support network. The House of Habsburg, the House of Hohenzollern, and the House of Romanov had long intermarried, resulting in an incredibly tangled web of relationships, a number of which led back to Queen Victoria of England. These three families influenced the political landscape of Europe, and their personal struggles, tragedies and decisions within these relationships affected Europe to a greater degree than they ever imagined. This mini [...]

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.
