Vanessa Redgrave and lawyer Philippe Sands narrate his original piece on the 1946 Nuremberg trial.

Philippe Sands' A Song of Good and Evil offers new insights into the conflict and connections between three men at the heart of the Nuremberg trial – Cambridge academic Hersch Lauterpacht, Polish prosecutor Raphael Lemkin, and Hitler's lawyer Hans Frank – with music that crossed the courtroom to connect prosecutors and defendant.

A personal exploration of the origins of modern justice and the fate of individuals and groups, in images, words and music.

Bach, Beethoven, Rachmaninov, Aragon, Mizraki and Leonard Cohen, performed by acclaimed bass-baritone Laurent Naouri and renowned jazz pianist Guillaume de Chassy.

Directed by Nina Brazier.
