This chapter focuses on the Haw-Haw radio programmes from Germany. This programmes were part of a pattern of German radio propaganda which had its origins in German policy and featured William Joyce. The opening words of Haw-Haw's programmes ‘Germany calling, Germany calling’ quickly became catchwords in Great Britain and Haw-Haw stole the headlines more than any British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) broadcasters. This chapter discusses the British background of Haw-Haw or Joyce.

Keywords: Haw-Haw; Germany; Great Britain; radio propaganda; William Joyce; BBC broadcasters
