How did Adolf Hitler evolve from an anonymous figure into history's most notorious war criminal? The three-part series, written and produced by award-winning documentarian Laurence Rees, reveals how Hitler formed a connection with millions of Germans by cultivating a level of charismatic attraction almost without parallel. He didn't `hypnotise' a nation as much as he convinced his followers that they were a superior race that would accomplish great things, as long as he had their support and believed what he said. Rees uses film archive - including rarely seen colour home movies - and special documentary footage, plus testimony from those who lived through these times, to look back at an unlikely leader.
