The Frankfurt Job

Two BBC Film Makers and one Challenge: To uncover the Soul of Frankfurt Rhine-Main

Companies and banks based in FrankfurtRhineMain have long appreciated the region’s numerous locational advantages: Short distances, excellent transport and a pronounced internationality. Outside the region, however, it is often not known that, in addition to its undisputed economic strength, it is also an excellent place to live. For this reason, BBC hosts Billie JD Porter and Alhan Gencay have been sent on a discovery tour through the region. Both had never been to Frankfurt Rhine-Main before and didn’t know what to expect.

In a total of six episodes, you will go on a discovery tour to an apple wine grower, to the Kleinmarkthalle in Frankfurt, to the Kaiser-Friedrich-Therme in Wiesbaden, to the Frankenstein Castle for Halloween, to the new Frankfurt Old Town, to a family with international roots, to an international school, to the Frankfurt Opera and an international Stand Up Comedy Club. Both face the challenge with their typical British humour and meet people who bring them closer to the secrets and characteristics of FrankfurtRhineMain.
