"Sky One aims to sort reality from rumour with four more intriguing cases in the new series of Conspiracies. Danny Wallace is back seeking answers to some disturbing questions. Did the CIA play geopolitics with lives at Lockerbie? Is the government conducting a top-secret alien programme? Did the Nazis invade England’s green and pleasant land? And was the FBI responsible for mass murder at Waco?
Travelling the globe on a definitive search for the truth, Danny talks to those who claim to be in the know. Each one hour episode dissects a different conspiracy: The Alien Evidence, MI5 Nazi Invasion, Carnage at Waco, Lockerbie and the CIA.
Conspiracies challenges the culture of control and secrecy of our governments as Danny Wallace goes in search of the answers to these alarming questions. Cover up or cock-up? This illuminating series aims to find out."
Although it seems that The Führer's enthusiasm for an invasion of Britain was never really all that great, this document demonstrates that there were clearly those in the German army who were obliged to take his occasional remarks on the subject deadly seriously. One of the preparations made for the invasion was this remarkable document, intended as a handbook for the occupation forces, in which SS-General Walter Schellenburg, among others, describes the way the country worked. More chillingly, its second part is a Special Wanted List of persons who were to be detained immediately by the invaders. It isn't hard to imagine what fate awaited those on the list…
It is a curious piece of work - but despite some obvious factual errors, and some strange ideas about Britain, such as the widespread power of the Freemasons or the crucial role of the Boy Scout movement in gathering intelligence (yes, really), we can learn much about Nazi Germany's view of Britain at the start of the war. In the section entitled 'Law and Administration', for example, I was interested to read the criticism that under the British system, some of the poorer members of society are denied a fair trial. What was it that the pot called the kettle?
