Road' the day before the Luftwaffe bombed it?

The second of two programmes about German propaganda broadcasts in English during the Second World War.

The Voice of the Nazi Who was the first Lord

Haw-Haw? Was it the traitor Norman Baillie -

Stewart, or an anglophile German who read P

G Wodehouse and rounded off his broadcasts with the expression 'hearty cheerios'?

Denys Blakeway investigates, and talks to surviving traitors and Nazi sympathisers whose blend of lies and half-truths mesmerised British listeners in the early years of the war.
