32 How the Nazis Stole Christmas (Cover Story)
If the Nazis were sworn enemies of Christianity, why were they so obsessed with Christmas? And how did they square celebrating the season of goodwill with their racialist policies? In a seasonal story of politics, propaganda and paganism, David Sutton finds that the truth about the struggle for Christmas in the Third Reich is both complex and disturbing.

42 Seeing the Light
Following the recently revealed Condign Report - with its talk of unidentified atmospheric phenomena - Paul Devereux celebrates the 'Cinderella' of UFO research, and traces the evolution in our understanding of 'earth lights' and other luminous mysteries.
