Germany 25 Years After the Berlin Wall Fell

The Berlin Wall fell in 1989 - 25 years later we look back at East Germany's difficult journey from a Communist state to the home of the most powerful capital in Europe. Presenter Tanya Beckett speaks to two "Ossies" who were still at school when the country reunified. She visits the model Communist steel town of Eisenhuttenstadt and speaks to a former steelworker about the difficulties of adjusting to capitalism. And Tanya interviews the German Finance Minister, Wolfgang Schaeuble, who played a key role in negotiating his country's reunification.
