Alec Baldwin heads the legal team as Justice Robert Jackson as America, France, Britain and Russia join forces to bring the remaining Nazi war criminals to justice. Also starring Brian Cox as Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering, Michael Ironside as Colonel Burton C Andrus, Christopher Plummer as Sir David Maxwell-Fyfe and Emma Isherwood as Edda Goering. Features include trailer, photo gallery and deleted scene. Includes original testimony from the original trial. A very enjoyable 3 hour educational drama and well worth buying.

I was 16 when I first visited Germany in 1958. At the local Bahnhof it was still possible to pick bullets out of the walls. My German student friend one Sunday morning asked if I would like to attend a free film showing in the town; it was entitled 'Nacht und Nebel' ("Night and Fog") and I did not understand for many years the significance of the title, which related to the Decree of 1941 issued by Hitler and Keitel that allowed the Nazis to detain and remove anyone - dissidents, activists, anyone suspected of endangering state security. These people thereby simply `disappeared', most ended their lives in the concentration or extermination camps, which became the subject for this film.
Silently a packed German audience watched authentic film - much of it shot by the Nazis themselves - of the horrors of the gas chambers, the mass murders, the ovens, the open pits piled high with naked bodies, the bulldozers moving mountains of writhing naked corpses, and the haunted faces of prisoners staring back at the camera through dark eye sockets long numbed into total unreality as their inevitable, horrible fate loomed ever present before them. Yet more than the film itself, shocked though I was, it was the reaction of the audience that I have always remembered. Not a sound, not a word, every single pair of eyes rivetted to the screen, and afterwards everyone filing out in orderly fashion, heads down, not uttering a word.
From time to time it is good to revisit these things to remind ourselves. Because it remains with us today, and when I hear governments speak of `the interests of state security', I wonder just how far we have come from the totalitarian state that we in Europe almost had for good.

From reading the other review they should have put this in at 5stars.
This really, really delivers. Actually scripted using theoriginal transcripts from the Nuremberg trials this has to be real lifedrama at the highest of levels, what makes this more appealing is theacting. Brian Cox stands out as Goering especially. (His acting in anyfilm can never be questioned). What can be questioned is that the Germanhead of the Luftwaffe (Goering) was probably something of a genius. Hisresponse to the prosecution in the court room are nothing short of aliteral master, his reasons for persecuting Jews held well on par withthe Americans inprisonment of American Japanese. However much hated theNazi Regime rightly is, when one is presented with their actual responsesto such hard hitting interrogation, questioning their integrity regardingthe human race you cannot help but be amazed at their casual attitude tothe mass genocide they undertook.
In no way does this promote any'extreme'politcal views. It merely lays down the facts to one of the mostimportant moments in our recent history and shows us the thinking of adespised band of people. Such a dramatic and intriguing event theNuremberg trials are it must have been one of the easiestscripts/screenplay to convert into film when it was already written wordperfect from history.
Brian Cox as Goering really is the highlight butthe other actors come a very close second.
Watch with a fascinated gruesome curiosity but just remember this was nomade up story. Word for word this actually happened which makes this filmeven more compelling.
This is the kind of film that should be shown toschool children in their history lessons and not the nonsense like'Gandhi' I had to put up with.
My reasons for this?
In 2003 60% of under 12 year olds in the U.K. thought Adolf Hitler was afictional person!!

Format: VHS Tape
From late 1945 to early 1949, the Nazi assault on Europe was brought to closure with a spate of war crimes litigation, collectively known as the Nuremberg Trials. As an absolutely necessary vehicle for making the world comprehend the extent of Nazi barbarism, it was, in a sense, anticlimactic. After years of total war, with all its attendant death and destruction, the deliberations and speeches of judges and lawyers in a big room can hardly be considered otherwise. NUREMBERG, released as a U.S. television miniseries, depicts the first of twelve Nuremberg Trials, that one involving the legal prosecution and judgement of 21 members of the Nazi hierarchy: Goering, Speer, Kaltenbrunner, Jodl, Frick, von Schirach, Raeder, Hess, von Papen, Doenitz, Frank, Keitel, Streicher, Schacht, von Ribbentrop, Seyss-Inquart, Funk, Sauckel, Rosenberg, von Neurath, and Fritzsche. Three others were indicted, but not in attendance: Bormann (not in custody), Ley (suicide), and Krupp (poor health).
The cast is large, but the two principal players are Alec Baldwin as the U.S. Chief Prosecutor, Robert Jackson, and Brian Cox as Reichsmarschall Goering. The former does his usual, inspired best to create a bland character. The latter does a wonderful job recreating the flamboyant Luftwaffe chief, although one wonders why the producers couldn?t find someone who could do a credible German accent, much less any sort of accent whatsoever. (Perhaps that's one of the differences between a made-for-TV film and a big screen release.) Indeed, one of the film's best features is watching Goering charm his way into the friendship of the Army lieutenant assigned as his personal minder, thus providing himself the avenue to cheat the hangman in the end.
