Nuremberg: Nazis on Trial (Nürnberg - Die Prozesse), a three part BBC docu-drama about the Nuremberg trials is finally due to come out on DVD.

The whole world was closely observing the Nuremberg trials from 1945 to 1949 when Nazi-Germany's most prominent leaders were indicted and punished for wartime atrocities and crimes against humanity. It was the first international trial for such crimes and set standards for today's prosecution of war crimes all over the world.

This critically acclaimed BBC documentation retells the trials of three of the most infamous Nazis leaders that were caught alive during the days of the European liberation: Albert Speer (played by Nathaniel Parker), Hermann Göring (Robert Pugh) and Rudolf Heß (Ben Cross). Newly researched material and the protocols of the trial's psychologist Gustave M. Gilbert enforce a detailed insight into the minds of war criminals, each one representing archetypes of men who misuse their powers.
