Abstract: The work considers the historical documentary produced by ZDF "The Germans - A thousand years of German history." The success of this series shows an increased need for emotional recollection of the audience and a new historical self-understanding. The series can be seen as an indicator for the relation of the population to its own past. It considers at how successful history of television is designed, which historical images are transported and which current national feeling of the Germans can be assumed.
