Deutschland 83 is a ground-breaking series from the producers of the international Emmy® award-winning Generation War. It s 1983. The Cold War is heating up. Russian missiles in East Germany are pointed West, American missiles will soon be placed in West Germany, to point East. The very real threat of nuclear conflict looms. Against this perilous political backdrop, a gripping coming-of-age story and a suspenseful, fast-paced thriller, follows Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay), a 24 year old East German native, who is thrust from the world he knows and sent over the wall to the West as an undercover spy for the Stasi. In Deutschland 86 we pick up the narrative three years later. In 1986 East Germany is broke, Perestroika is real, terrorism plagues Europe, the AIDS crisis intensifies and the struggle against apartheid rages on. Martin's aunt, Lenora (Maria Shrader), conscripts him into her plan to drum up hard currency abroad and they set off on an adventure through Africa, Western Europe and finally home to East Germany. But can mafioso-style Capitalism really save Communism in the nick of time?

They've been targeted for disruption by rival politicians and targeted for death by would-be assassins. But staff members of the Presidential offices called The West Wing continue to serve the U.S. and its President in a second season whose honours included 8 Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series. Episodes 1-4: In the aftermath of the attempted assassination, there are lives to save... and challenges of governing that remain. But questions of the staff's ability to cope with the psychological impact of the murderous assault hover over the West Wing's efforts as it faces critical midterm elections and tries to broker a deal between an AIDS-afflicted African nation and American pharmaceutical companies. Episodes 5-8: The Presidency is part formality, part criticality and wholly a reflection of the man in the office. When that man is Josiah Bartlet, it's in his nature to appoint a controversial foe to a staff post because he admires her skill. As for formality, Bartlet continues a tradition by pardoning one Thanksgiving turkey ...and then another. And a critical situation in the Persian Gulf arises when a tanker transports contraband oil. Episodes 9-11: Don't like green beans? Neither does President Bartlet. But his admitted dislike could cost him votes - and that puts the staff in damage-control mode. Meanwhile, Josh is a disaster waiting to happen due to post-traumatic stress disorder. And, as Christmas comes and goes, it seems like a good idea to extend the olive branch to the opposition and begin the new year in a spirit of bipartisanship. Well, at least it's worth a try.Special Features:Interactive Menus, Scene Access.
