Hitler: A Life In Pictures

Across this unique and exclusive 4 x 1 hour episodes, Hitler: A Life in Pictures uses archive and expert interviews to explore both the public and the private life of Germany’s infamous dictator and features the photos and videos of of just two photographers who both dedicated their lives to documenting Hitler - Heinrich Mann, Hitler's official photographer and Hoffmann's photographic assistant, Eva Braun.

The archive footage includes 1,300 recently digitised, rarely seen photos taken by Hoffmann and materials garnered from Eva's personal photo collection along with more than four hours of her home videos mostly filmed at Hitler's fortified chalet in the Bavarian Alps.

Produced by Woodcut Media and Rainmaker Content for Channel 4 in the UK.
