“Babylon Berlin”: The first episode of the fourth season today on First | NDR.de – Culture

As of: October 1st, 2023 00:00 a.m

The fourth season “Babylon Berlin” takes a look at the powder keg of Berlin in the early 1930s. The season has been in the ARD media library since Friday, and the first episode will be shown on Das Erste today at 8:15 p.m.

Exhibition fights in the boxing clubs of the underworld, sweaty dance marathons in Moka Efti and the catacombs of the Red Castle, the police headquarters where all the strings come together: The fourth season delves into the early 1930s and takes a new look at the powder keg of Berlin.

American Abraham Goldstein returns to search for a stolen jewel belonging to his father.

While Walter Weintraub’s underworld wages a bloody war for control of the city, the future of the Weimar Republic is decided on the streets, in the party headquarters and also in the editorial offices of the fascist press. The SA thugs under their leader Walther Stennes demonstrate their will to power ever more brutally. Stennes’ men also declared war on the SS, protected by government councilor Wendt. Gereon Rath stands between all fronts. As his mission to free the journalist Katelbach expands, Rath finds his life in danger and loses the trust of his most important ally Charlotte Ritter. Alongside her sister Toni, she uncovers the machinations of the “White Hand”, a secret vigilante organization. The unofficial investigation will change both of their lives.
