Children's TV to Christmas : What was from Timm Thaler and co.?

You have to imagine Patrick Bach as a happy man. 25 years after his greatest role, he sits in a luxury hotel on the outskirts of his home city of Hamburg and looks with Sunny Serenity on the back, which can almost be a Bonus, and Ballast of any acting career: the Christmas series in the ZDF, a German Federal Republican camp-fire from maximum comfort.

Bach has not ignited, but as the little Patrick in 1981, the circus boy "Silas" was played, and in the following year, the full-orphan "Jack Holborn", was the medium of choice at the peak of societal binding force.

And now, it's that time of the summer is a fairy tale, tells the father of a family of his breakthrough, and what came after. Although most of it is rather light food, Herzig says open "even shallow," although its career has more of a "dream ships" as a "crime scene", even though it is seen professionally today, gently but steadily downhill, analyzes Bach his life's work in the almost meditative peace of mind. Why not? The family, the father shows his young-old Silas Smile: "Yes I have no Problem with that, to be a child star."

Remake in the ZDF

have Been grammatically Perfect, somehow, from yesterday: Patrick Bach, a reminder of an Institution of the children's program, says a lot of over the leading medium of earlier days. Because if the ZDF is showing on Wednesday to the best camp fire time a Remake of the first Christmas series, not only Fortysomethings nostalgia to mind.

in 1979, sold in "Timm Thaler" alias Thomas Ohrner the heartless Baron Lefeut after James Krüss' youth novel his infectious Laugh. He won by 25. December to the end of the holiday daily in the ZDF each bet, until after twelve episodes of fighting for old lucky on 5. In January, the idea came to bet ums-old laughter. Clever Boy.

similarly, Andreas Dresens remake ends. Until then, however, everything is a little different than in the Original, the public monopoly phase. Colorful, shrill, funny, contemporary. Tim's opponent is not a beige, grey, Horst Frank, but the carnival relativistic Justus von Dohnányi, there are of Król and Uhl to Hübner and Haberlandt a dozen Superstars, speaking rats and plenty of fanfare, so little, what did Timm 37 years earlier: a quiet, even sluggish Uneventful, with the lures today, no longer a child behind the game console.

And so it went on. Row by row, year after year. In the subsequent Lindgren adaptation, which is ten parts long of a little more than the little Swede "Madita" (Jonna Liljendahl) while Playing, to Else URY's "tick nest", which was the story of the civil Prussian Fin-de-Siècle in 1983, six episodes long, in soft-focus diving.

For current viewing habits unsuitable

in the meantime, Patrick ensured that Bach's nostalgic time travel with (wild) boys like (love) girls for hormone surges. If you look at the series, however, periodically in the case of YouTube, or constantly on Youtube, must admit: For SuperRTL-, Internet-trained viewing habits of the target group under 16 work content, pace, tone, use of equipment more sedating than entertaining.

And because the claim to think the behavior has changed, no longer fits the linear programming, also structurally, to the digital natives of Generation Y to Z. Every day, at the same time in front of the television, which may not be a smart time – what the ...?!

more dividers That are Christmas so anachronistic, but it's still not a phenomenon of the new Millennium. Of 17 issues, only some of the first half of it, finally, into the collective memory of all the gently accelerated biotech agent Thriller "Patrik Packard – managed". The actor Hendrik Martz was in 1984, however, already adult of 16 years old. This is also why the blonde Hamburger from the "Wicherts next door could lie down" on the "Woyzeck" at the Berlin vagantenbühne, to the lecturers of various acting schools a respectable connection career.

stuck In the past

Of them could dream of his successor at best. The Violinist Josef Gröbmayr ("Oliver Maas") remained, as did the Italians Guido Cella ("Mino") is a One-Hit-not to mention the Wonder of the mass television – by Alexandra Henkel, Leandro Blanco, Coco Winkelmann or Norman Nitzel, the conclusion of a series called "Frankie" in 1995 was already far below the threshold of perception.

Silvia reached Seidel as a young ballerina "Anna" in 1987 – with Patrick Bach as gehbehindertem buddy Rainer – almost a status of a cult. Because of them, says the shooting star, Alicia von rittberg ("Charité"), "I wanted to be a ballet dancer". Because of you, but it was also the home of the stories in the "Bravo", fairy-tale hours in the rainbow press and a successful cinema spin-off. What there was not: a sustainable success. Because like so many of their ancestors in the Pantheon of Christmas series, the Munich ended in the shallow water of soap Opera, Boulevard theater and panel shows.

after her signature role, the ZDF-series went to a Christian festival, adds to the tragic nature to the image in a Format that is stuck in the past. Patrick Bach was recently in "Cobra 11". Could be worse. Better but also.
