OUR LAND IN THE 90s
Hollywood in NRW - 1991

In the ten-part series, WDR travels back to the 90s - to a time when mobile phones were still pressed to the ear as huge bones, music stations like EinsLive and Viva started and the old precinct turned into a local recreation area.

1991: The showdown took place in Bonn. The Bundestag voted on whether the seat of government should move to Berlin - and the people of Bonn feverishly awaited the result on video screens. A real economic thriller took place in Dortmund: the Essen-based Krupp Group had secretly bought up the majority of Hoesch shares. It was the first hostile takeover in the history of the Federal Republic. Commissioner "Schimanski" investigated for the last time in the Duisburg Tatort, and Hape Kerkeling made television history as the false Queen Beatrix. Two box-office hits made the Ruhr region their backdrop. The main actor in both films: the cult car "Manta". The films could be admired in the new multiplex cinemas that sprang up all over NRW.
