The Time Tunnel

The Time Tunnel takes visitors through the broadcasting history of television. It spans from the beginnings of television at the end of the 19th century to the first television experiments in the Weimar period, highlights the significance of television under the National Socialist Regime; the divergent positions of East and West Germany, and traces their developments to present-day programs.
Emphasis is also placed on extraordinary achievements of the medium: live broadcasts of events of national and international importance, including audiovisual material from the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953 and the poignant speech delivered by John F. Kennedy in front of the Town Hall in Berlin-Schöneberg, to the first moon landing in 1969 and the first time Boris Becker won at Wimbledon, to the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and the funeral of Pope John Paul II.
