Me and my brother used to watch this series when it was shown in Sweden back in the 70s. Especially we were very fond of lead actor Gottfried John, who's laid back, easy going style really made an impression to us as a role model. The series is about the family situations and the situation at work. How does an ordinary day of life go by in Germany? It starts of when Jochen (played by Gottfried) makes an improvement to the the machine he is working on at the factory which helps to speed up the production process. The drawback , however is that now fewer employees is needed to run the machines. He starts of as an rather unpopular workmate.
Also there was Hanna Schygulla who is a top actress who starred in many of Fassbinders films. I would really like to get my hands on the series on DVD because it's not only charming but also a great landmark of contemporary television because of its documentary drama style.
