Holo­caust: Night Will Fall Chan­nel 4, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

In 1945, the Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion's Sid­ney Bern­stein was com­mis­sioned to make a doc­u­men­tary that would pro­vide ev­i­dence of the Nazis’ crimes. He as­sem­bled a team of film­mak­ers in­clud­ing Al­fred Hitch­cock to record the true hor­ror of the con­cen­tra­tion camps, but the project was deemed too po­lit­i­cally sen­si­tive and never broad­cast. Now, 70 years later, Bern­stein's film has been re­stored and com­pleted by the Im­pe­rial War Mu­seum, and this pro­gramme tells the story of its cre­ation.
