Germany elections: People are not feeling represented

In less than a month elections take place in Germany.

The main parties remain committed to the euro but there is a new one which is saying it would return to the deutschmark.

Germany's political system depends on coalitions so even small parties can wield a lot of power in government.

The BBC's Steve Evans reports on the new party, Alternative für Deutschland.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Tuesday 27 August 2013.
