    "We see the following men stepping down from a plane at Warsaw aerodrome:" - the men we see aren't currently properly recorded. I'll tidy that up now.....

    The first two men stepping off the plane are, at 00:08, August Jaeger, (more of whom later). The second man, at 00:11 is Kurt von Burgsdorff. Then, updating the current text, come;

    "Buehler" - that's Josef Buhler, (AKA Joseph Buehler), he's the third man off the plane at 00:19.

    "Leist (Liest?)," - that's Ludwig Leist, he's seen at 00:30.

    "plus Jager, one-time police-president of Posen" - that's August Jaeger, he's seen at 00:35.

    "Beckmann, former head of Krakow Gestapo" - that's Gustaw Beckman, he's seen at 00:39.

    "Ponikau" - that's Erasmus von Malsen-Ponickau, he's seen at 00:43.

    "Daume" is Max Daume, he's seen at 0:47.

    "Hoess" is Rudolf Hoss, (AKA Rudolf Hoess, he's seen at 00:52.

    The date of filming is 18 June 1946.
