Sunday Documentary: Clive James – Postcard from Berlin

Australian comedian and broadcaster Clive James was a darling of British television in the 1980s and early 1990s.  As part of his Postcard From… series, James visited Berlin in 1995 and produced the documentary, Postcard from Berlin.

It’s interesting to see how much some of the places shown have changed in the last 20 years.  For instance, the area around the Führer Bunker was then a wasteland – unrecognisable as the site of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

However, some things don’t change – there are still cranes everywhere.

    Thank for putting it up. Always loved Clive. It was a great series and the Berlin Postcard especially interesting for me as an Ex-Berliner. Of all the places he visited Berlin was the only one, where he said he could live there.

    Sorry he is so ill now. He will be missed.

    Many thanks for posting this amusing video. Berlin then looks a lot drearier than Berlin now. I am so glad I have only recently discovered this amazing city. I wish I could spend more time there.

    And, of course, there is only one Clive James who has brought so much fun to the world but, as illness take over, regrets how he has served his own family. But at least he has the joy of a granddaughter.
