Eye witness account of a Nazi rally

Swansea born writer and broadcaster Wynford Vaughan-Thomas recalls time that he spent in Germany in 1937. He gives a first-hand account of watching Adolf Hitler deliver a speech to over 100,000 Germans packed into a stadium with archive film of the event - he describes Hitler's oratory powers and says that he found the whole event terrifying. Vaughan Thomas was to become one of the BBC's most distinguished war correspondents during World War Two.
