The Finest Hour of the German

Robert Koch | The World Cup 2006

From the coronation of Charlemagne to Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the church to the "summer fairy tale" of the Football World Championship in 2006: the five-part ZDF series "The Finest Hours of the Germans" looks back at historically important moments in German history. Elaborately staged and with exciting collages of archive material, the series presents the most important pioneering achievements, the most dramatic events and the happiest moments – the finest hours of the Germans.

With an opulently staged film on the ingenious researcher and pioneer Robert Koch and the emotional review of the "Summer Fairy Tale of the World Championship 2006" BROADVIEW TV makes two exciting and very emotional contributions to the series.
