In September and October of 2009, the History Channel ran a series of shows called Nostradamus Effect. Episode 4 was titled Nostradamus Effect: Hitler's Blood Oath and featured a small segment on Hanussen. Although the series was a little over-the-top, it contained interesting information nonetheless. A clip covering the Hanussen component can be seen below. The entire series on DVD can be ordered by clicking on the photo to the right of the video:
