Prof. Dr. Guido Knopp of ZDF’s history department (producer of Hitler’s Henchmen and The Vatican) and Carsten Oblander, chief editor for Munich-based Zolcer TV, have partnered to produce 100 Moments of the Century, 100 x 10 minutes. Each of the short documentaries will feature the story behind one of the century’s most compelling and recognizable images from film and photos.
Episodes include the first flight of the Wright Brothers in 1903, the maiden voyage of the Titanic in 1912, the planting of the stars and stripes above Iwo Jima in 1945, Neil Armstrong’s moon walk in 1969, the first test-tube baby in 1978, and modern-day tragedies like Tiananmen Square, Chernobyl, and Oklahoma City. The series, still in production, features extensive archival footage plus new interviews. 100 Moments is designed to air over the last hundred days of 1999. mea
