Changing Berlin: Changing Europe

Synopsis
Explores the relationship between local experience and global change by looking at some of the changes that have taken place in Berlin during the present century and in particular at the impact of the fall of the Berlin Wall on two families, one from the East and the other from West Berlin. They describe life in the divided city, their feelings when the Berlin Wall fell, and its impact on their lives. The programme also examines racism, which threatens the stability of the newly unified city, and looks to the future, at Berlin’s place as capital of a unified German and at its role in a new Europe.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
