Overview

A gullible German reporter attempts to revive his floundering career by releasing Hitler's lost diaries, only to find that he's become the victim of an elaborate hoax, in this black comedy based on actual events. Gerd Heidemann (Jonathan Pryce) calls himself "The Bloodhound" for his uncanny ability to sniff out a lead. But lately Gerd's nose has led him astray, so upon unearthing some documents that appear to be The Führer's personal writings, he persuades Stern Manazine that the story is worth millions. But after the editors cough up the cash for the documents, it's discovered that a Stuttgart counterfeiter has been selling the fakes at his shop for years. Of course now that virtually every major media outlet in the world has run the story, they'll require a scapegoat to keep their reputations intact, and their empires from crumbling. Barry Humphries, Tom Baker, Alison Doody, and Alan Bennett co-star.
