The Propaganda Machine
The second part of a 1990 Bafta award for the best arts documentary, examines the use of the mass-media, and how television, radio, film and the party rally became the most effective means of controlling public opinion.
Hitler believed that "the right use of propaganda is an art", and his Propaganda Ministry employed more than 400 cameramen to record the work of the Party's artists. Producer Peter Adam

Fourth in a five-part series, first shown in 1976, on the life and work of Rembrandt.
The Withdrawal. Lord Clark examines the reasons for
Rembrandt's withdrawal from a busy and successful life.
"Great artists are not always sorry to become anonymous," he says. The 1640s witnessed both the artist's financial ruin, and the painting of some of his finest portraits, of which the most moving depict women. In these later years, Rembrandt was rescued from bankruptcy by his son Titus and his companion Hendrickje Stoffels , "to whose love and devotion we owe so much".
