BBC Scotland's Hitler Blooper: Weather Forecast Accidentally Includes Nazis (VIDEO)

Who knew Leni Riefenstahl was working for BBC Scotland?

There must be no greater nightmare for a news producer than to accidentally include Nazi B-roll. But unfortunately, the nightmare came true for BBC Scotland when an anchor accidentally cut to a photo of an unknown woman, presumably intended for another segment, after introducing a piece about Hitler henchman Rudolf Hess. Then, to make matters worse, an innocuous weather report immediately took a turn for the "Triumph of the Will" when footage of Hitler started playing.

In the future, we hope they ensure the Nazi footage is kept decidedly separate.
