OUR LAND IN THE 90s
The country is shaking - 1992

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.

The year 1992 was full of big surprises! The country shook more violently than at any time since 1756, most violently in the Lower Rhine region. In Cologne, the completely unknown pop singer Guildo Horn launched his career, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger from Minden became a minister overnight and Thomas Helmer from Dortmund experienced a summer to forget. The summer of 1992 saw revolutionary changes in telephony: The D-network started its triumphal march. At the end of the year, police officers in Bonn discovered the bodies of Green Party icon Petra Kelly and her partner Gerd Bastian. And in Cologne, more than a hundred thousand people demonstrated against racism and xenophobia.
