News Broadcasts from Alternate Histories

YouTube member Epentibi uses artificial intelligence programs to create realistic news broadcasts from the 1960s through the 1980s in worlds gone terribly wrong. I gather that Epentibi is inspired by the strategy video game Hearts of Iron IV, but it's not necessary to know that game to appreciate good alternate history.

What would the world of the 1960s be like if the Axis won World War II? Eventually, as American newscaster Walter Cronkite explains in 1963, the Nazi governance system would lead to civil war.

Some of the videos are in other languages, including French, German, and Japanese. Fortunately, these videos are subtitled in English. The one embedded above has good news for those of us longing for liberation of France from the German yoke.

The world is now locked in a Cold War between United States and the old Commonwealth nations facing the German and Japanese Empires. The freeze extends across the entire globe--even to Antarctica.

Walter Cronkite is spinning in his grave. Sure, it's the fact that he never said those words, but also that he would have never said "on German radios" or "has been in the question" nor would he have pronounced "pact" like that.
