Deutschland 83

It's about an East German border guard who is recruited to go undercover as a West German soldier to get intelligence for the East. It was only 8 episodes but I thought it was very interesting and exciting to see what the political situation was like in 1983 in Germany. I learned more about what was going on at that time than I remembered learning before. Obviously it's a fictional story, but there's a fair bit of archival footage via characters watching televised news reports.
Interestingly, this show was more popular outside Germany than in Germany (where it was made), but I have read that next year there will be a second series that takes place three years later: Deutschland 86.

Have any of you watched it?

Re: Deutschland 83

I believe so. From what I remember reading, it was on Channel 4. In German with English subtitles. Can't remember if it was this year or last year, though.

Re: Deutschland 83

I don't know how often they rerun stuff, but if you can find it I recommend it!
