I’m really delighted to be the presenter of Talking Germany. Each week we have a new guest – and what fascinating people they are. Each of them has made his or her own very special contribution to making Germany such a vibrant and dynamic country. And it’s always interesting to find out how they tick by talking with them not just during the show but also before and after. Which is why I’ve also got a blog for you with behind the scenes impressions of the many notable and quotable people featured on the program. It goes without saying: we look forward to hearing your comments, too!
I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’m a great fan of the movies. And down the years I’ve made it a habit of asking everybody I interview – sports stars, people from the world of culture and fashion, corporate leaders, figures from high politics, even film directors – to name their favourite movie(s) of all time. Here then are some of the most recent selections.
