Ten years ago, VPRO Broadcasting company worked with the author Geert Mak to create the television series In Europe about the history of the 20th century. In the autumn of 2019, a follow-up series will be made focusing on the turbulent years since 1999. Where on earth did we go wrong these past two decades? What is left of all our great expectations?
What has happened in Europe over the past 20 years?
