Codi Wal Berlin

S4C | 1 x 60minutes | Sky Vision / Cwmni Da

A documentary that dramatises the fateful events of the 13th of August 1961, the night the Berlin Wall was built.

Archive film woven together with dramatic reconstruction as eye-witnesses share their memories of that night in Berlin. Heinz Schafer was one of the policemen tasked with erecting the new border in a matter of hours.

Ingrid Taegner’s family was among those who would be separated by the wall for the next 28 years. Historian Dr Marion Loeffler, a Welsh speaking German brought up in East Berlin, provides analysis of the event and its significance for the world.
