The separated couple are forced to consider their future and Paula's imminent UK return isn't helping. Stars Charlotte Emmerson.

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.

With Knut working in Rostock and Paula teaching at the University in Dresden, they are forced to consider their future. The situation intensifies as Paula's return to the UK draws near.
