    Not sure why this  hasnt aired in the US. I have seen it and it is very good. The actors are wonderful tho I wanted to punch the Leo Hurwitz character in the face. lol

    It was a mistake to execute this guy. Instead of execution, they needed to research and understand people like this better to be able to stop such things more efficiently in future. I say more efficiently, because maybe we won't be able to stop it completely but at least we could reduce the impact.

    Watched The Eichmann Show a tv movie about the drama behind the televising of the Eichmann trials in 1961. A fine portrayal of a number of issues thrown up by the work of televising the trial. Thoroughly absorbing. My IMDB rating 7/10.

    "For each of us who has ever felt that
    God created us better than any other human being,
    has stood on the threshold where Eichmann once stood.

    And each of us who has allowed
    the shape of another person's nose,
    or the colour of their skin,
    or the manner in wish they worship their god
    to poison our feelings towards them
    have known the loss of reason that led Eichmann to his madness.

    Well, this was how it all began
    with those who did these things."

    I am watching this "show" right now. Typical of younger BBC the producers, they don't realise  the word FUCK was seldom used then especially by cultured, educated people. I was 20 at the time so I remember.
