Deutschland 83 (DVD)
Deutschland 83 is a groundbreaking new series from the producers of the international Emmy award-winning Generation War.
Its 1983. The Cold War is hot.
Deutschland83 followed the adventures of East German agent Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) in 1983, when the Cold War was at its most intense. Recruited by his Aunt Lenora (Maria Schrader), a Stasi handler, Martin is sent to the West to gather military intelligence undercover.
Set against a backdrop of fervent political feeling and the threat of nuclear war, Martin must leave everything he knows for a new life undercover in the West. But nothing and no one is as they seem. Every friend is a potential enemy; every enemy a possible asset. And the stakes couldnt be higher.
Lauded for its pace, sense of style and clever weaving of fictional stories and historical events, this is a colourful, proudly mainstream drama with a brain and a pulse.
The first episode was the highest-rating subtitled drama in British television history!
