#8334: INVESTIGATION, THE
1967-04-14, NBC, 72 min.
Alexander Scourby, Paul Larson, Peter Brandon, Ward Costello, Alice Hirson, Vivian Nathan, Graham Jarvis, John Marley, Gordon Clarke, Will Hussung, Franklin Cover, Leon B. Stevens, Peter Weiss

An NBC Television SPECIAL:

 A look into German death concentration camps during World War 11. The play is set in a courtroom where witnesses confront the accused who represent real people. Alexander Scourby introduces the play. The cast is comprised of those actors who performed in this play on Broadway (1966).  
Commercials deleted. 


THE INVESTIGATION dramatizes testimonies by Nazi death-camp inmates. Adapted from the Peter Weiss Broadway play.

For years, the machinery of Auschwitz consumed them, millions upon millions. Statistics cannot communicate the horror; adjectives cannot describe the nightmare. It is only through the testimonies of the survivors that we can understand what took place, and that it COULD HAPPEN AGAIN!

The play is set in a courtroom where witnesses confront the accused (represented by real people). The atrocities which occurred less than an quarter of a century ago are related calmly and quietly. With equal reserve, the accused reply, "WE ONLY OBEYED ORDERS." 

NOTE:
This color taped 90 minute SPECIAL PRIME TIME NBC TV broadcast is not extant IN ANY FORM, VIDEO, AUDIO (with the exception of the master 1/4" reel to reel recording archived by Archival Television Audio, Inc.), or TRNASCRIPT. It was not archived by NBC or  archived by the major museums in the USA (Paley Center for Media, UCLA Film & TV Archive, Library of Congress, Museum of Broadcasting). 

Even more sadly noted and unexplained is that there is NO REFERENCE to this broadcast title on the internet, or listed as an IMDb entry.

The one listing of this title can be found in The Library of Congress as a rare theater program Playbill, ONLY (found in the Richard L. Coe Theater Programs Collection).

It is interesting to note some of the following review excerpts from Variety Television Reviews:

“The NBC presentation deserves all the recognition it may get as one of the outstanding programs of the season.”

“If to forget history is to be compelled to relive it, this dramatized presentation could not be aired often enough.”

"THE INVESTIGATION" WAS REPEATED AND AIRED ON SUNDAY APRIL 16, 1967 FROM 3:30 TO 5:00 PM EST. 

“If it were not known to be history, playwright Peter Weiss’ play could be mistaken for the sickest kind of theatre of the Absurd.”
