Dude, The Nazi's Had Television
Creepy. Very Very creepy. This German doc from the nineties shows a fairly sophisticated operation. The audience was primarily upper rank officers, bureaucrats and party insiders. Berlin had numerous public television parlors, and several hundred privately owned sets. What's creepiest here is the drooling host ranting about making deviants dance to a different tune for their supper, and the injured soldiers forced to perform, and talk about how great it is to dance with one leg. Oh, and that happy vacation time thing they had going . . . crap.
