Christmas series

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So-called Christmas series for children, some of which became very popular, were produced by the Second German Television ( ZDF ), mostly together with TV60Filmproduktion , from 1979 to 1995 and 1998. Every year between Christmas and New Years , a multi-part children's series was broadcast, usually starring a teenage hero . For some young actors like Thomas Ohrner ( Timm Thaler ) or Patrick Bach ( Silas , Jack Holborn , Anna , Laura and Luis ) or Max Riemelt , the Christmas series marked the start of their careers.

In the mid-1990s, ZDF stopped the Christmas series. The reasons lay mainly in the changing television habits. With the advent of private television , there were more channels to woo the audience during the Christmas season. On the other hand, the quality of the Christmas multipart also deteriorated. The ZDF was therefore no longer able to build on the old successes with the Christmas series at the beginning of the 1990s. The expensive productions were no longer worthwhile.

Christmas series, however, are not solely a German phenomenon; they are also available in other countries, such as the 24-part daily Christmas series (“Voksen-julekalender”) in Scandinavia.
