The Real Indiana Jones

Not sure if this is the best forum, but did anyone see this the other night on 5?

Only caught the last 15mins or so, but was dissappointed I'd missed it. Interesting stuff, not for the Indiana Jones links, more for the Nazi's bizarre interest/belief in the supernatural and how it could make them more powerful.

Was aware of the links, but didn't know a great deal. Wouldn't mind reading abit more about it if anyone can recommend a decent book?

Otto Rahn seemed to be the main character, but think his books (Crusade Against the Grail being one) might be a bit hardcore, any other recommended reading?

I saw this and like was surprised about the Nazi's interest in it all and was surprised that they actually let the bloke (can't remember his name) go although they did pretty much tell him that the only option open to him would be to kill himself which he did.

A pretty good documentary.

Richard Stanley (the director of Hardware and Dust Devil) made an excellent, if very weird and oblique, documentary about Rahn called The Secret Glory. It's included in the recent R1 Subversive Dust Devil DVD set.

It was an interesting documentary. Basically split into a look at two people - Otto Rahn and Roy Chapman Andrews. Interesting as although Lucas claimed Indy wasn't a real person - he was based on the 1930s serials (which in turn seem to be at least in part based on Roy's exploits).

Argh, pretty much the same point I caught it from last time

Doesn't look like it's available on Virgin On Demand or repeated again unfortunately.

The Quest for the Lost Ark was very interesting! Debunking a lot of the myths surrounding the ancient box.
