The BBC is to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz with a raft of programmes including a feature-length drama starring Martin Freeman.

The feature-length drama, titled The Eichmann Show, will revisit the trial, which was televised around the world and was a watershed moment in the global understanding of the Holocaust.

Freeman and actor Anthony LaPaglia will tell the story of the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann, known as the architect of the Holocaust.

BBC director of television Danny Cohen said: "The liberation of the camps is a very significant anniversary which the BBC will mark with a range of thought-provoking programmes."
