Fascism in Colour
History Documentary hosted by Bill Paterson, published by Channel 5 in 2006 – English narration
A two-part film on Benito Mussolini and fascism, presented for the first time in colour. It is the story of fascism’s violent roots, and its dream of restoring the glories of the Roman Empire. Benito Mussolini became well known as the leader of the National Fascist Party and the main founder of fascism after his return from WWI. The war had altered his outlook on life; once a reformer, he became obsessed with the idea of power and started to refer to himself as Il Duce. His apparent successes and glorification of violence encouraged Adolf Hitler to organise Germany on the same fascist principles.
\”FASCISM IN COLOUR\” provides a fascinating yet disturbing account of Il Duce’s desire for power, his totalitarian dictatorship and his alliance with Hitler that led to the death of 55 million people. Based on descriptions of events written at the time; letters, diary entries, secret memos and telephone taps, this is a truly remarkable record of the man who ultimately became Hitler’s pawn.
Rare archival colour footage keeps Il Duce’s arrogance and his ruthless rule of violence, intimidation and murder very much alive.
Produced and Directed by Chris Oxley ; An IWC Media co-production for Channel Five in association with Discovery Channel
