In November 1939 Hitler was almost killed by a bomb placed in a beer hall in Munich where he was due to make a speech. Throughout the war the Nazi government maintained that this assassination attempt was the work of a widespread conspiracy involving the British Secret Service. From documents now available, it emerges that it was the work of one man. a simple German artisan, Johann Georg Elser, with no political axe to grind.
With Ronald Pickup as Johann Georg Elser
Written and narrated by J. P. STERN: with the voices of EVA HADDON, ANNE JAMESON, MALCOLM HAYES, NIGEL LAMBERT, HECTOR ROSS, ALAN ROWE, DAVID RYALL and PETER WILLIAMS
