    D-Day to Berlin [#102] Allies at War By the end of August 1944, Hitler's armies were in headlong retreat to the borders of the Reich, but the Allied advance was threatened that autumn by a long and bitter battle fought in the conference chamber - for the right to direct the final assault on Germany. This episode tells the story of the behind-the-scenes battles over strategy that threatened to drive a wedge in the Anglo-American alliance. The damaging personality and policy clashes between the Supreme Commander, the American Dwight D Eisenhower, and the commander of British forces in the field, Field Marshal Montgomery. Those who fought tell of the desperate allied struggle to capture the bridge over the Rhine at Arnhem, and of the terrible winter battles in the Bulge when Hitler's armies threatened to turn allied victory into defeat. duration 52:16   STEREO TVRE

    D-Day to Berlin [#103] The Dream That Died With British and American armies poised to cross the Rhine and Soviet forces advancing towards Berlin, victory seemed certain and the Allies were planning a new Europe based on liberty and democracy. This edition draws on the memories of those who fought and on reconstructions to tell the story of the last desperate battles inside Germany and of how the dream of a new Europe crumbled in the ruins of Hitler's Reich. On 16 April 1945 the Soviets began their final assault on Berlin and fourteen days later Hitler was dead. But even before the victory celebrations were over, a new chill gripped the alliance. A new European order had emerged, but it was dominated by another dictator - the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. duration 50:33   STEREO TVRE

    Nazi Hunters [#102Z] The Hunt for Martin Bormann Martin Bormann was vital to Hitler. Bormann made Hitler and the Third Reich rich through thinly veiled extortion schemes such as The Hitler Endowment Fund of German Industry. Bormann, Hitler's doctor Stumpfegger and Artur Axmann (the Head of the Hitler Youth) all left the bunker in Berlin together after Hitler's suicide on April 30, 1945. After Axmann left them at the Lehrter Station, Bormann and Stumpfegger disappeared. In 1972, workmen found two skeletons at the site of the Lehrter station. Analysis of the bones suggested they were Bormann and Stumpfegger. In 1998, a skull was subjected to a DNA test and proclaimed to be that of Bormann. However the skull was found to be full of a type of red clay which is only found in Paraguay. Where he went and how the body returned, still generates controversy. duration 51:19   STEREO TVPG
