Join WFTV for a panel discussion with director Jenny Ash, Channel 5 commissioning editor Denise Seneviratne and archive producer Fran Rowlatt-McCormick, the female team behind the new documentary The World’s Biggest Murder Trial: Nuremberg and an exclusive opportunity to watch a preview of the film.

2020 marks 75 years since the biggest murder trial in history took place in Nuremberg, Germany. At a series of military tribunals, leading Nazis were prosecuted for crimes that caused the death of millions during World War II, facing prosecutors from Britain, America, France, and the Soviet Union. Bringing together archive footage from the trials and a wide range of interviewees, the film reveals an insight into the courtroom.

In this event hosted by Emma Bullimore, the panel will be talking about the making of the documentary and the historical significance of Nuremberg trials then and now.

The panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A. This event is open to WFTV members and non-members.
