I heard a trailer earlier for yesterday's 'Afternoon Play' about Heidegger on BBC Radio 4. They referred to him as 'the Nazi philosopher'. The same in the Radio Times. I know he was a Nazi party member and sympathiser, but that description makes him sound like the party's ideologist.

The play also had a major part for Hannah Arendt (played by Jemma Redgrave), though this was hardly mentioned in the publicity (the RT's cast list had 'Hannah'.)
