Knut and Paula's relationship deepens as they spend time alone. But big decisions need to be made. Stars Jonathan Keeble.

The series which explores the 20th century through the diaries and correspondence of real people, returns with "The Iron Curtain" by Nell Leyshon. The drama is inspired by the diaries of Paula Kirby, who went to teach English in East Germany in the 1980s, and her correspondence with paediatric surgeon Knut Löffler.

Knut and Paula's relationship deepens as they spend time alone together. Too soon the term ends and Knut has to return to his clinic in Rostock. Big decisions need to be made.
