Vol. 1 No. 78 1936 Berlin Olympics sequences

We're going to go a bit out of sequence here, because I've found some great film footage of the 1936 Olympics on Youtube. Most of this was filmed by Leni Reifenstahl, Hitler and Goebbels' film propagandist. The easiest way to view these is go to Youtube and type in "1936 Olympics, Leni Reifenstahl" and the clips will come up and you can choose from all of them. Otherwise you will have to type in the rather complex html's below.

Last two laps of 1500 meters Great footage of Jack Lovelock of New Zealand winning over Glenn Cunningham.

Jesse Owens semis and finals 100 meters

Some of these clips are backed with Pink Floyd music, be prepared.
