Hyperinflation. The Beer Hall Putsch. Kristallnacht. And so on. While they say that if you don’t know your history, you’re doomed to repeat it, it doesn’t seem like there’s much danger of us forgetting this twentieth-century horror story – which draws frightening parallels with present-day Greece in its empowerment of racist ideologies, combined with a weakness for uniforms, brutality and arm waving.
The whole of BBC’s superb ‘The Nazis: A Warning from History’ series is still available on YouTube, so 'Hitler's Rise: the Colour Films' has strong competition. But it’ll be interesting to see how this two-part documentary series fares in comparison. Tonight (spoiler alert), Hitler fights in World War I, attempts a coup, goes to prison and writes a stupefyingingly wrongheaded and vainglorious book. No previews were available.
North One Garden Centre
Enjoying a string of awards since opening in the late 1990s, North One Garden Centre has grown from a small backyard independent to a boutique-style gardener's essential with an array of shrubs and indoor plants. The North One team knows their urban clientele well and the site is dressed like an interiors magazine, with garden design furniture and chic accessories (it's a gnome-free zone). But for all its designer's eye, it's hugely practical too with a good range of solid tools, Franchi heirlooms seeds, and friendly and knowledgeble service. They can also deliver, too. In 2011 the North One team opened West Six, another garden centre in, um, W6.
Venue says: “N1 is a life enhancing garden centre in the heart of London, created out of passion and expertise.”
