Serial | Germany, since 1985

Directed by: Hans W. Geißendörfer u.v.a.

In Germany's first ever series, which launched in December 1985, the focus lies on the
Lindenstraße (Lime Street): a typical street in Munich with its blocks of flats, cafés, an organic foodstore, a supermarket, a travel agent and a restaurant.

The series portrays German reality and accompanies its residents in their everyday lives,- showing the hopes, joys, fears and desires amongst friends, families and neighbours.

An additional and unique feature of the series is the current updates, which are produced a few days before each episode is aired. A scene, or part of a scene, from the episode is re-written and re-shot to contain current affairs from politics, business or sport. The scene is then edited into the episode to be broadcast on the following Sunday.
