    Both these two films were hidden away on the Christmas schedules. Managed to catch up with both last night.

    "Operation Daybreak", filled with a multitude of British TV actors, is a detailed account of the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in 1942, and the tragic aftermath. The Nazis took an appallingly vicious revenge, with the extermination of an entire town,Lidice.

    An interesting movie, as it endeavours to balance the consequences paid by the Czech public against the perceived allied adgenda.

    "Conspiracy" featured Kenneth Branaugh, as Heydrich, and dealt with the infamous Wannsee Conference, in which Nazi and SS leaders gathered in a Berlin suburb to discuss the "Final Solution".

    A excellent drama, in which men dine in splendour, and casually, laughing and joking, condemn over 5 million men, women and children to arbitrary slaughter. Very powerfull, yet low key. Tightly scripted, and desperately disturbing. See it if you can on R1 DVD. A HBO/BBC co production.
