Happy Birthday Niedersachsen

Former Queen Mary doctoral graduate Dr. John Goodyear presents German TV documentary celebrating the 75th anniversary of the founding of Lower Saxony. 

2021 marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of the German federal state of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) by the British military government. Located in northwestern Germany, it brought together the former Prussian province of Hanover with the states of Braunschweig, Oldenburg, and Schaumburg-Lippe in 1946. To mark this anniversary, the German public television broadcaster NDR broadcast Happy Birthday Niedersachsen, a 45-minute documentary produced by Zentralfilm in Hanover and presented in German by former Queen Mary graduate Dr. John Goodyear.

The documentary will be screened as an online event on 14 December 2021 at 5pm.
