Our ports - the power plants of an exporting nation.
They connect the German economy with global markets and secure Germany as a production location. The series is at close quarters when giant tankers dock thousands of tons of crude oil, ferries are unloaded in Europe's largest ferry ports at high speed, divers eliminate dangerous spots in the black water of the harbour basin as quickly as possible and mega-freighters are towed from open waters to their parking spaces by local nautical experts. What happens behind the scenes of Germany's most important ports and on board of the ships? Who coordinates the processes burdened with high responsibility? How can heavy goods be handled? Port firefighters, naval divers, bridge masters, customs officials, they are all part of the port cosmos and indispensable for its functioning. Accompany the people behind the enormous ships and machines.Episodes:
