A look at the fall of the Berlin Wall through the broadcasts of one West Berlin newsroom. Before RIAS TV was incorporated into Deutsche Welle, it served audiences on both sides of the wall that separated East and West Germany. Starting on the morning of November, 9 1989, the RIAS TV newsroom documented the growing crisis in the GDR alongside the GDR lotto numbers. It was an ordinary newsday mixed with escalation. Until finally the wall opened up ... and the party started.
We invited five RIAS TV journalists to revist their role in reporting the day's events as they unfolded, and with the perspective of thirty years' behind them, it's not what you'd expect.
