HBO Video have just sent through details of two Battle of Britain Dramas that will be making their way to region two this September. The first DVD is Conspiracy, which stars Kenneth Branagh and Stanley Tucci. Conspiracy is a chilling recreation of the 1942 Wannsee Conference held on January 20, 1942, when 15 Nazi and SS leaders gathered in secret to discuss the 'Final Solution to the Jewish Question'. Led by SS-General Reinhard Heydrich (Branagh) this group of high-ranking German officials came to the historic and far reaching decision that the Jews of Europe were to be exterminated in what would come to be known as the Holocaust. In little over an hour, whilst enjoying fine food and wines, the blueprint was drawn up for one of the most awful times yet faced by civilisation. This DVD will contain two featurettes and a cast & crew biography. It will be available from the 15th September and will retail for £15.99.
