"A curious act of history, of course, this [Olympic flame relay] was all invented by a certain Josef Goebbels in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Well, some things about that era have survived, and this is certainly one." -- Alex Thomson's Channel 4 News report on the arrival in the UK of the Olympic flame, in a torch-relay ceremony that was an invention of the Nazi propaganda minister Josef Goebbels. #Olympics #Propaganda
