This aired on KSTP-TV, Channel 5 in Minneapolis/St. Paul in the early 1970s. Every Saturday night at around midnight, they would run all those great horror flicks from the 1930s and 1940s. I loved watching this. Even if the movies stunk, the open and close were great!

In a way this is the British equivalent of the final episode of MASH. MASH ended happily with the characters returning stateside. Blackadder Goes Forth didn't end so happily. The irreverent mini-sitcom comprised of just six episodes was set amid the chaos and horrors of the First World War's trenches. Rowan Atkinson played company leader Captain Blackadder. This poignant final scene fom 1989, often called the most memorable in British television, has the cast regulars preparing themselves to go 'over the top' to face certain death.

The Greatest Mass Rape in History
One of this century's greatest crimes, and probably one of the greatest crimes against women in history, was the mass rape of the conquered women of Europe in 1945. The rapists were mainly Red Army soldiers, some of them non-White troops from the Far East and Central Asian Republics of the Soviet Union.
As the Red Army advanced toward her in 1945, the city of Berlin had become a city virtually without men. Out of a civilian population of 2,700,000, 2,000,000 were women.
Former Soviet war correspondent Natalya Gesse recalled: "The Russian soldiers were raping every German female from eight to 80... It was an army of rapists."
The rape victims were not just Germans. Polish women also suffered. So did young Russian, Belorussian and Ukrainian women who had been sent back to Germany by the Wehrmacht for slave labor.
As Author Antony Beevor put it,
"If anything, the events of 1945 reveal how thin the veneer of civilization can be when there is little fear of retribution."
