    Yep it was during the 'Nazi Regime'

    but I need to know what they did to look impressive?

    The TV signal from the Berlin Olympics was the first TV signal that was strong enough to travel to "outer space". The whole idea of the Jodie Foster (god she is gorgeous) film Contact is that the signal has been received miles away by an alien race etc etc.

    Might not be the answer you are looking for, but it is an answer.
