Germany votes: a crucial election for Europe (part 2)

In the second part of the show, we visit Saarstahl, a gigantic steel factory where bosses and workers are working hand in hand to try to preserve jobs at the plant. We also visit Eisenhüttenstadt, once a Socialist model city in the former GDR that is struggling to adapt to Germany's liberal ways. Finally, we investigate why Germany has the lowest birth rate in the eurozone.
