Selling Hitler

A Euston Films/Warner Sisters co-production, this five-parter was based on the book by Robert Harris. Jonathan Pryce starred as a West German writer who is conned into buying what he thinks are the diaries of Adolf Hitler, from a conman (Alexei Sayle) in East Germany. Other stars include Tom Baker and John Shrapnel as Pryce's magazine editors, Julie T. Wallace, Alison Doody, Roger Lloyd Pack as David Irving and Barry Humphries as Rupert Murdoch. Brilliant!
