David Hasselhoff has a unique link to the Berlin Wall – a massive pop star across Germany, he was invited to perform in Berlin to a million-strong crowd from a newly united East and West Germany, singing on the broken barrier on New Year’s Eve 1989. Arguably more than any other event, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent collapse of Communist rule across Eastern Europe set the scene for the 1990s – and David was there to witness history in the making. With the 25th anniversary approaching, Hasselhoff vs. the Berlin Wall takes viewers on an incredible, personal journey back to Berlin, retracing the Wall’s history, meeting the people who lived in its long shadow – the unbelievable escapes and divided lives – and examining the fate of the Wall’s final remnants.
