Elisabeth Gärtner, a retired architect, has only one more wish: she wants to die. Her beloved husband died of cancer three years ago and without him life has no meaning for her any more. A drug that would allow her to die of her own volition has been refused her. Now the Ethics Council must make a decision on her case. Expert witnesses from the fields of law, medicine and theology argue over the question: Does a human being have a right to determine their own death? Are doctors allowed to help someone commit suicide? And who do our lives actually belong to? To us? To the state? Or to God?Gott (God)

For the city of Munich, the 1972 Olympic Games are a giant step towards the future. How the Cold War was reflected in the «cheerful games» of 1972, why violence in the form of international terrorism came to the Olympic village despite all efforts to the contrary, and what consequences this continues to have today are investigated by the directing team of Regine Dura and Hans-Werner Kroesinger using eyewitness accounts, investigation files, newspaper articles and interviews with people who were there and saw what happened.Die Spiele müssen weitergehen – München 1972 (THE GAMES MUST GO ON – MUNICH 1972)
