Networks in Europe and Australia have bought London-based producer World Media Rights’ The Rise of the Nazi Party (pictured).

The 10 x 50 minutes-series uses dramatic reconstructions to illustrate how the Nazi Party and its key figures Hitler, Goering, Goebbels and Himmler were able to win over the Germany public in the years following World War One.

Discovery Networks Western Europe, SBS Discovery Media in Scandinavia, Planète in France and  Foxtel in Australia acquired the rights to the show, realscreen can reveal.

“This series is part reminder, part warning,” said Matthew Barrett, executive producer and World Media Rights’ creative director. “It shows that under certain economic conditions, in which mainstream politicians can’t address the concerns of ordinary people, then even decent, respectable folk can be manipulated by extremist movements.”

 The Rise of the Nazi Party is distributed internationally by IMG Entertainment.
