The Miracle of Bern
The game

Until now, only 15 minutes of footage of the legendary 1954 World Cup final existed. No other parts of this sensational success have ever been reconstructed. Until now.

After extensive, worldwide archive research, it has been possible for the first time to present 40 minutes of the gripping and emotional final match - in a double pass with the legendary radio broadcast by reporter Herbert Zimmermann. Instead of short, isolated clips, the game can be followed in long passages of the ball. Previously unpublished moves show the ball skills of the German players, previously unseen scoring chances by the Hungarians show goalkeeper Toni Turek as a true "football god". The film presents the 3:2 from five different perspectives alone. Sensational are the unique colour shots of the final that were thought to have been lost until now: For the first time, all five goals can be seen in colour.

First broadcast: Tues., 27 April 2004, 8:15 p.m., ZDF.
