Friday November 25th. 9pm, BBC2.

Timewatch: Inside the mind of Hitler.
A doco that investigates the 1943 psychological study of Herr Hitler undertaken by Dr Walter C Lander of Harvard University. Looks pretty interesting viewing so if you're off down the pub, get her indoors to video it for you.

was that the personality analysis which predicted that Hitler would kill himself rather than face capture?

i seem to remember that the allies drew up a fairly accurate psych evaluation of Hitler during the war.

Well any dictater worth his salt would rather commit suicide than be captured.

Except... er.. Saddam that is.

of Hitler during the war.

What if Dr. Langer did not in fact perform this amazing feat of psychological detective work during the war as is widely believed?

Consider that we have never heard of another gifted analyst like Dr. Langer who performed this feat on any other Political Figure.

Now consider the possibility that this was a bit of Cold War gamesmanship, designed to amplify the West capability in the immediate postwar days, aimed of course at the Soviet leadership.

Hmm.

Yeah, but Sarah Cox is on Have I Got News For You on BBC1 at the same time.

It's a tough decision. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Yeah, it was a dilema. Discussed it with the missus and we're watching the Hitler thing, videoing the other. Then watching Cox 9:50 onwards.

Solved.

Edit* 1,400. That's a nice sounding number. No text on my avatar yet, must try harder (p.s. Mods, do not put 'must try harder under' my avatar).

Turns out he wanted to:

1. Shag his mum, (but not Eva Braun who represented the lovy, huggy, aspect of his mum).

2. Kill his dad, often and frequently.

3. Be wee'd on by his neice after examining her genitalia (who represented the sexual aspect of his mum and dad).

He was convinced of his immortality because he survived childhood illness when his brothers did not.

There was no discussion of the possible impact of his war experiences on his psyche but this was outwith the freudian nature of the study which presumed the personality is formed as a child.

He was a psychopath (I'd already suspected this) which meant he didn't give two goats about how many Germans or anyone else died.

He identified totally with the German nation, but so did they with he (not adequately investigated), allusions to the 1st World War etc.

Externalised all of this angst, hatred and pain on...the Jewish people, (but not the communists who he also seemed to have a pathological hatred for).

So apart from being an oedipal, incestuous golden shower loving, suicide causing, self-deluded messianistic, psychopathic, pathological liar who projected his own self-loathing on to the Jewish race, invaded other countries, had his political enemies murdered, dismantled a democratic system and couldn't get it up with Eva because he had a phobia, what was wrong with the bloke? I think Chamberlain should have given him a second chance.

Nice to see Manuel from Fawlty Towers doing some straight stuff though.
