This was originally broadcast three weeks after East and West Germany officially reunified, and one year after the Berlin Wall came down. See more »


Willis states the laser mic picks up vibrations from a window like a CD player. This is incorrect. A laser mic is an analog system that converts the variations in the returned laser signal directly to sound. This system will pick any small noise and requires significant filtering to be usable. The laser in a CD player picks up the long and short pits on the surface of the disk. This is a digital signal that requires a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) to generate the analog sound. This is the reason CDs have a very high quality sound. See more »

Otto Romburg: [answering phone] Romburg's Toys. How may I help you?
MacGyver: [on phone] Otto, it's MacGyver.
Otto Romburg: MacGyver. Where are you?
MacGyver: I'm in East Berlin at Stasi headquarters, or what's left of them, anyway. Listen, Otto, I've got some good news.
Otto Romburg: You have found my granddaughter?
MacGyver: Well, not yet, but I've found Maria's name on a list of orphans the Stasi had on file. I'm meeting with a guy later who might have a line on how to find her.
