Deutschland 89 review – the end of history? Not quite
Western hubris is unpicked as a new series of the hit German drama explores the deeper consequences of the fall of the Berlin WallIt’s midnight on 9 November 1989 and the mood in the American embassy in East Berlin is smug. “This is the end of the cold war,” West German agent Brigitte Winkelmann tells CIA counterpart Hector Valdez. A few streets away, the Berlin Wall has been breached by East Germans bent on trading up from Trabants to the KaDeWe department store. Border guards are experiencing something new – being hugged by their compatriots. All that remains, you’d think, is for Francis Fukuyama to proclaim that history is over and the west has won.“Hopefully not,” retorts Hector drily. “We’d have to find a new enemy and who would that be?” In a matter of years, according to Samuel Huntington’s Clash of Civilisations, the west would find an Islamist surrogate for red peril, but for that moment, history was poised. “I don’t know, I mean everybody loves America,” Brigitte counters, proving, not for the first time in this show, that Germans can do sarcasm.

Lions rule out Australia and may yet play in empty South African venues
Lions want government guarantees to host tour at homeVirimi Vakatawa could return for France at TwickenhamThe fate of the British & Irish Lions tour this summer remains up in the air with a final decision having been deferred until next week. Lions officials, however, have ruled out any prospect of relocating the tour to Australia, and shifting it to the UK and Ireland will only happen if the government agrees to underwrite any potential losses in the event of another Covid-19 surge.Until now staging the tour behind closed doors in South Africa in July and August had been viewed as a last resort but organisers may yet be left with little other option. Holding the matches in empty stadiums would be a passion killer on many fronts but it would enable the three-Test series to proceed as originally scheduled. Continue reading...
