"Then the prisoner came into the dock.
A little man. Pale now, and looking insignficant as he stood there with four warders grouped around him. It seemed hard at that moment to associate with that figure the sardonic venom that once sneered from stations Hamburg and Bremen."
- A 1945 radio report by the BBC's Godfrey Talbot on the dismissal of William Joyce's appeal from his conviction for treason.
The BBC has just released archive material
relating to William Joyce - known as Lord Haw Haw
- whose anti-semitic, pro-German propaganda was broadcast into Britain during World War II. The archive includes audio clips
from Joyce's radio broadcasts, correspondence
between the government and the BBC on what to do about the problem, and a 2009 radio interview with his daughter
. He was hanged at Pentonville Prison, an unrepentant anti-semite, on the 3rd of January 1946.
