Episode 1: Hitler's US Election Plot

Summary

Bradley Hart, author of Hitler's American Friends, investigates the Nazi attempt to meddle in the 1940 US election in order to keep America out of the Second World WarI. He uncovers a disturbing story of pro-Nazi American groups, armed right-wing militias, and a group of Americans happy to help the Nazis steal the election with huge sums of cash. Bradley also makes a key discovery - the actual paper trail, including receipts for cash used to pay delegates to vote against Roosevelt. It's a story with resonance for today's politics, a story of foreign governments attempting to undermine democracy, and where media is used to inflame division and polarisation
