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.
