Following the defeat of Germany in WWII, the Allies determine that there must be an accounting of German war crimes. Twenty-four Nazis, representative of all sections of military and civilian life are chosen to stand trial for the crimes of conspiracy to commit aggression, commission of aggression, crimes during war and crimes against humanity. The preparations for the trial, the trial itself and its aftermath are shown through the eyes of Chief Prosecutor Robert Jackson and through the eyes of Reichsmarshal Hermann Goering, the ranking Nazi defendant.

Trivia

Most of the actors playing the defendants are Canadian, the country where the miniseries was filmed. Herbert Knaup, who plays Albert Speer, is one of the few actual Germans in the cast. See more »

Goofs

At the Nuremberg trial, defendants gave their pleas of "Not guilty / Nicht schuldig" after moving to a single microphone at the center directly in front of Ernst Kaltenbrunner's position, rather than by standing at their places in the dock. See more »

Brian Cox A Winner
11 November 2002 | by SignetSee all my reviews

Brian Cox picks this mini-series up by the scruff of the neck and runs off with it. It is an amazing testimonial to his talent and his craft that he suceeds in making Field Marshall Hermann Goerring the most appealing and charming character in this rehash of the Nuremburg trials. His "seduction" of the young American non-com is not only plausible but gratifying. It is amazing that this performance has one cheering on the second in command of the Third Reich as he cheats the hangman's noose.
