A "Must See!" program
2 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the ONLY program shown on "Mystery!" (PBS) that I remember with enough affection that I want to find a copy of it to own. I have watched "Mystery!" for many years, but no other offering has grabbed me in quite the way "Die Kinder" ("The Children", in German -not "Perish More Nicely"). I recall that at first the action seemed to move more slowly than I wanted, but I hung in there- it was WORTH IT! The fact that the program was historically accurate in the setting used for the story only added to my enjoyment.

Another aspect of the program was that every episode (chapter?) started with a flashback to the original bombing from the '60s. I haven't seen it since it showed on PBS, but it seemed to me that the flashback made more sense to me as the episodes progressed. I'm not sure whether this was due to increased understanding from information given in previous episodes, or whether there were subtle changes in the flashback as the program progressed. That is ONE (but not the only) reason I want to own a copy of this program for myself.

I won't spoil the program or ending for those who haven't seen it or who don't remember it, but I must say that this program is a MUST SEE (in my humble opinion) for anyone who likes "Mystery!" or suspense films.
