    Background: Preparations for the "trial of the century".... Elaborate arrangements for security and television coverage have been made for the trial of Adolf Eichmann, beginning in Jerusalem, Israel, April 11. The charges against him include the murder of 6,000,000 Jews in Europe during World War Two.

    Troops guard the court-house to prevent any possible sabotage - and journalists assigned to the case are checked and re-checked by police as they enter and leave. On the roof of the court-house (built as a community centre) are more troops with tommy-guns.

    It is to be a "television trial". Four unobtrusive television cameras will cover the court room. The pictures will be recorded on to videotape, and newsfilms for world-wide distribution will be produced from this.

    Eichmann himself will be in a bullet-proof glass booth. His attorney - Dr. Servatius, of Cologne, West Germany - will attempt be convince the three Israeli judges that they are not competent to try Eichmann, one report from Jerusalem said.
