The first television programme in the world to be regularly broadcast went ‘on air’ in Nazi Germany in 1935. And so began, stated in full pathos, “the time of an incomprehensible miracle … the people were given sight.” Strangely, however, the Nazis didn’t value television highly as a means of propaganda, hence the crafted, often not overly ‘designed’ documentation allows a unique view not only of the early days of the medium, but of nationalist society without the usual exaggerated propaganda.
The 12 minutes documentary about the 1937 International Hunting Exhibition in Berlin has been put together from fragments of the original documentary film material.
