Berlin Wall

This collection of television and radio clips from the BBC Archive looks at how one city, Berlin, came to represent the political stand-off between East and West during the Cold War. It also explores what the consequences of this were for citizens united by family, employment and friendship but divided by a 27-mile-long fortified concrete and mesh barrier: the Berlin Wall.
