Drüben
BRD 1973

The ZDF magazine program “Drüben” presents itself as tolerant and liberal-minded, reflecting the spirit of the reproachful policies of the then Social Democrat government. The program focuses above all on the numerous West German and West Berlin delegates at the World Festival, including MPs from all of the main parties. “I’m all in favour of anti-imperialism!” the presenter declares, and adds: “When it applies to everyone.” One almost has the impression that he likes a East Germany, “inspired by communism, but more pluralistic than ever,” which, after all, gives each of its delegates 1000 marks to buy their chic clothes.

TV-Magazin (BRD), 1973, 30 Min.
