This is the story of Berlin, its inhabitants and its remarkable post-war history. In six standalone films, incredible and rare archive footage from Berlins local news is interspersed with interviews from eyewitnesses. We trace the story of the aftermath of World War II and the Cold War as it was for the people of Berlin. Along the way, our story follows those who escaped trying to cross the Berlin Wall; the mass of bunkers and tunnels built underneath the city by the Nazis; Allies, Soviets and various individuals who battled to both hide and escape in the capital; and the spies who walked its streets and cafes while it was the centre of world espionage.
