The worst nose job since Michael Jackson's. The last one I mean.  You know, the one where it kept falling off his face.  :notme:

BBC show on Bismarck.  A good compilation of videos and interviews.
Surprising they got John Hillerman (Higgins of Magnum, PI) to narrate.

Particularly since he was a Texan and not remotely English :P

Here he is in 1983.



One can only wonder how thick his Texas drawl was before listening to those 100's of hours of Laurence Olivier recordings.

Wow, had forgotten Hillerman was in that wacky, Tales of the Gold Monkey show. 
They were trying for that Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Casablanca vibe.  The Abwehr was all over the south Pacific in this.

Hillerman shows up at about 3:50, but enjoy all those nutty nazis.

I'd heard of that show but never watched it. Shame on me.
