The critically acclaimed, multi award winning hit German drama Babylon Berlin follows a young police inspector uncovering a tangled web of corruption amongst the political, social and sexual extremes of the Weimar Republic. Making waves at home and internationally after its run on Sky Atlantic, and with its third series due later this year, Babylon Berlin Series One & Two is set to arrive on DVD 1 April and digital 1 March, courtesy of Acorn Media International.
The lavish $40m series follows Gereon Rath, an ex-soldier from Cologne transferred to Berlin in 1929 to investigate one of Berlin’s biggest pornography rings, together with stenotypist Charlotte Ritter and his partner Bruno. Rath is forced into an existential conflict, torn between loyalty and uncovering the truth as an even greater conspiracy unfolds: Soviet rebels confronting the rise of National Socialism. Berlin’s police headquarters increasingly become the melting pot of a democracy whose days are numbered.
With its startling social relevance, Babylon Berlin is perfect for your next box set binge.
