OUR LAND IN THE 60s
Away with the gray veil

At the end of the 1960s, change is in the air: young people are rebelling against the old, women are pushing for more equality, young people want to get out of the conformist structures. There is a lot of friction in many places. Collieries have to close. The Ruhr is no longer just a workers' area, but increasingly also an academic area.

In the last episode of "Our Country in the 60s", the focus is on 1968 and 1969: women show that they can also be different. A female racing driver outruns the men and Geseke celebrates Ingrid Becker, "its" Olympic champion at the Games in Mexico. Willy Brandt becomes the first Chancellor of the SPD, and the Americans land on the moon.
