This documentary was inspired by a trip to Berlin in 2005. When Ian Hawkins bought a souvenir t-shirt with the old East German (DDR) communist symbol on it, he realised he needed to learn about life before the wall came down before he could wear it. So he subsequently returned to Berlin with his camcorder and set about gathering stories from both the East and West. This is a word-of-mouth hit with a host of fascinating interviewees, from the British Communist who worked for the Stasi, to the child of Communist parents who misses the old days.

Thanks to the Director
