Ronnie & Maggie
This documentary will analyze one of the most important political relationships of the 20th century.
The friendship between Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan was not just strategic but built on a high level of trust and admiration for their respective political triumphs and positions. It was a combination of Reagan’s love of ladies and their shared political views that made their first meeting in London such a success. They had great ambitions and were both outsiders in their own party, looking for an opening to stand out.
The film will explore the crucial events at the end of the Cold War that brought Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan together in their fight against communism and the removal of nuclear weapons. The friendship of these two world leaders led to decisive action and important breakthroughs with the Soviet Union that enhanced global security and fostered important relations between nations who were former adversaries.
Germany at 30
On November 9, 1989, one of the most spectacular events in modern history unfolded in Berlin: the wall that had divided the city since 1961 suddenly and unexpectedly came crashing down. A new Germany – and a new Europe – were born overnight.
Germany at 30 will retrace the dramatic events surrounding the fall of the wall and the dizzying pace of re-unification that unfolded the following year. The film will visit ordinary German citizens to find out how their lives have played out in the new Germany.
Germany at 30 will draw on commentary from historians and other experts to explore the role and responsibilities of Germany as the most populous and most prosperous nation in the European Union, and the most important European ally of the United States.
The film will also examine challenges that the new Germany is suddenly facing at the end of its third decade:
- an unanticipated flood of refugees and migrants
- a Euro-zone riddled with economic stresses
- a rising tide of nationalist and populist sentiment
- an expansionist Russia, and
- a new president of the United States who promises to re-define the 60-year-old relationship between Europe and the U.S., perhaps changing the world order as we know it.
