William Joyce was hanged as a traitor at Wandsworth in 1946. As Lord Haw Haw he became the radio voice of Hitler's Germany, apparently an aristocratic Englishman with a fine line in lordly sarcasm. The real William Joyce was an American who felt he was warning Britain against Communism and a 'Jewish financial conspiracy.'
How did William Joyce become the most hated voice of World War II; and was the law stretched to secure his execution?

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
