: Timewatch The Story of Elisabeth Nietzsche

First of two programmes about the sister of Germany's great philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche , the man Hitler and Mussolini claimed was their inspiration. Forgotten Fatherland. In
Paraguay the blond, blue-eyed people of New Germany speak the same Saxon as their ancestors did when they arrived there more than 100 years ago. They are the result of a bizarre racial experiment carried out by Elisabeth Nietzsche , who founded the colony with Bernard Forster , a racist, Jew-baiting schoolteacher.
Her relationship with Forster had led her brother to break off contact with her. But when
Friedrich Nietzsche was declared insane, it was Elisabeth who returned to Germany to take control of his affairs.
Tonight's film visits Paraguay to meet the descendants of the people she chose for their
"purity of blood" to form a new Fatherland. Next week's programme reveals the extent of Elisabeth's malign influence in the rise of fascism.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
