: The Fatal Attraction of Adolf Hitler

Presented by Dr Christopher Andrew.

"For me Hitler was a superhuman being, somewhere between man and a god ... I adored him and was ready to die for him." Guenther Triedwindy, former member of the Hitler Youth.

This is a cautionary tale for any age about what can happen when a civilised country surrenders its will to a charismatic leader. Now, 100 years after Hitler's birth, one question remains to be answered. How was it that the Germans could appoint into office, then follow into ruin, a leader who in the judgment of history was a hateful tyrant? This new film, BBC Television's only biography of Hitler, contains exclusive footage not seen in Britain before. Eyewitnesses interviewed include Germans who speak openly for the first time about their enthusiasm for Hitler and also the only German who ever challenged Hitler about the Final Solution.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
