Adolf Hitler planned propaganda cable TV

"Day four in ze big bruder haus..."

Daily Telegraph Link

Plans for the system were first found when Soviet soldiers entered Berlin but have recently been reexamined by researchers for a new Russian documentary.

The Orwellian screens would have been set up in public places and would show "people's television", depicting how the Aryan race should live, with the Nazis focusing on news, sport and education.
Ideas included building rooms beside laundries so women could gather round the TV to watch the broadcasts.

Prototype programmes included Family Chronicles: An Evening with Hans and Gelli, which was an early reality TV show depicting a wholesome Aryan life of a young German couple.

Engineer Walter Burch was asked to make the idea a reality, and tabled a document to Hitler called "Plan to supply people's transmitter to German homes" which would result in the laying of a broadband cable between Berlin and Nuremberg.

Other plans included showing footage of executions of Nazi traitors.
Curt Schulmeitser, a former SS officer, told the programme how a relative of Hitler's mistress Eva Braun was filmed being shot after trying to flee Berlin.
It was implied by Hitler's deputy Heinrich Himmler the filming was for Hitler's benefit.
He said: "Himmler wanted somebody else in a different place to see what was going on."

According to the programme Joseph Goebbels, leader of the Nazi Party's propaganda unit, realised the potential of the visual image: "The advantage of a visual image over the audible broadcast is the audible becomes a visual image with the help of an individual's imagination, which can't be kept under control. Regardless, each will always see his own."

It was known as the 'Tits & Hitler Channel' when it first started, due to the profusion of soft-core and documentaries about the luftwaffe...

Surely you'd just wait until late '44/'45 when the standards were relaxed?

Hitler favorite meal show condemned
http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1222017615153&pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull
A culinary show on Adolf Hitler's favorite meal to be aired next week has come under fire from Jewish, resistance and political prisoner organizations.

In his series "Plat Prefere," or "Favorite Dish," professional cook Jeroen Meus goes to Hitler's haunts in southern Germany to prepare trout with butter sauce, "a succulent festive meal" and said to be one of Hitler's favorite meals, th A e program's trailer announced.

Michael Freilich, the editor of Joods Actueel magazine, lead the criticism, saying Thursday it was worrying Hitler had turned into a banal figure, thus sending "the wrong signal" to a younger generation.

The VRT network will air the show on Oct. 28 and said it will put Hitler "in the right context."

The Germans carried on broadcasting TV until sometime in 1944 iirc. There was quite a good documentary on it a few years back.
I remember that , and roving news reports from that terribly personable interviewer, doing magazine pieces on growing your own vegetables , a day at the stables etc etc.

What was staggering was just how advanced their programming and formats were , unlike ours "an evening with Alberto and his Orchestra live from Alexandria Palace"..

Hitlarious!!!!!!!

What about something along the lines of that programme about embarassing illnesses.

Dr Mengele could present and star in it, maybe it would be renamed

" Mengele mangles", How would you say that in Aryan?

How about an ARYAN version of Bad lads army.

A gang of Untermensch are forced to undertake military training at the Totenkopf barracks, the unwilling recruits are obliged to finish the course and head to the front or their captive parent's "Get it".
One young offenders single mother later in the show ,proclaimed tearfully, " I am so glad my little Willy has completed the course i am so proud of him and did wince when he was kicked in the face for trying to evade the flamethrower on the assault course.
At the time i was chained to a radiator in the basement of the Police station next to a t.v. and a latrine. Willi later told me that if he had not finished the course my pupils were to be injected with industrial bleach and my skin sold to the Aryan equivalent of Saville row. Then i would be sent packing without as much as a travel warrant back to Berlin.

Little Willi is on the straight and narrow now and has managed to stay off the Schnapps, mainly because he is in a penal battalion near Minsk.

Maybe this post should be deleted before mandelson see's it.
He is a bit partial to some tailored "Skin".

Hitler was obsessed with British proper gander film and used to watch them as much as possible usually through the night.
The documentary I saw claimed his favourites were where you would have a blond British soldier with a Vickers machine gun in a fortification mowing down hundreds and hundreds of chaps from the Indian sub continent.
