Channel 5 spotlights Nuremberg trials

The Nuremberg trials began in November 1945

ViacomCBS-owned UK terrestrial Channel 5 has commissioned a feature-length documentary on the Nuremberg trials of Nazi war criminals.

Nuremberg: The Nazis on Trial (working title) is being produced by UK indie Middlechild Productions.

The 1×90′ documentary special, to be delivered in the summer ahead of airing later this year, examines how the “greatest trial in history” unfolded in a courtroom at Nuremberg’s Palace of Justice 75 years ago.

Once the home of Nazi propaganda rallies, Nuremberg played host to the prosecutions of Nazi leaders for war crimes including the murders of millions of Jewish people during the Holocaust.

The film uses archive and newly digitised filmed material from the trial. Its executive producers are David Sumnall and Andrew Eastel, with Jenny Ash directing. Commissioning editor Denise Seneviratne commissioned the show for C5.
