Five years in the making, Heimat is one of the most compelling and highly praised dramas in television history. This epic tale of a family and their rural life in a small German village is told against the changing backdrop of a countrys turbulent history from 1919 to 1982. From the aftermath of the First World War, economic hardship, the rise and fall of Nazism, the Second World War and the decades that followed, life in the village goes on and the values and aspirations of the people at its heart are wonderfully brought to life in this gripping saga of an ordinary family living through extraordinary times.
Edgar Reitzs astonishing 15-hour masterpiece appeared in 6th place when BBC2 ran a 40th birthday poll celebrating the stations greatest programmes and was 10th in Channel 4s 50 Greatest TV Dramas. It has captivated audiences all over the world and will continue to be hailed as one of televisions most rewarding and unforgettable experiences.
