From September 19th, the film can also be seen on DW English.
You also can check out the documentation "Impatient, Dissatisfied, Divided? - Germans at the End of Merkel's Grand Coalition." on DW Docfilm.
Or listen to our podcast "Merkels last dance", where each episode is dealing with one of the problems Angela Merkel faced during her periods of governance.
There will be rolling news coverage about the German election from 3:00pm UTC to 9:00pm UTC on DW English. Including a live broadcasting event called "Elefanten-Runde" in the evening of the election on DW Deutsch+ and DW English from 6:15pm to 7:15pm UTC where politicians from different parties will answer questions from journalists. Additionally, on the 27th of September DW will broadcast news in the morning containing a debate “To the point” at 8:30am UTC about the election.
