The Berlin Wall, with Russell Tovey
The Berlin Wall was one of the most important symbols of the Cold War, signifying the division of Europe into communist East and capitalist West.
But why was the Wall built? How did it affect the lives of ordinary Berliners? And how did it come crashing down in 1989?
In this episode we were joined by Russell Tovey, renowned actor who has starred in Being Human, The History Boys and Him & Her.
