Long before the retro-trend conquested TV, the Cologne Conference presented milestones of international TV history. Among others, BELPHÉGOR, THE PRISONER, THE MONKEES and BÜRO, BÜRO were re-performed. The current Cult Night is dedicated to the series of the late Fifties and early Sixties. Next to classics, which already placed themeselves inextuinguishably in the cultural memory, curious pieces presenting the Zeitgeist and the courage to experiment, will show the early beginnings of series entertainment. In co-operation with Kabel1 the Cologne Conference shows some of the most well-known and enchanting pieces. Götz Alsmann will lead through the evening as he is an expert of entertainment history.
