The Making of Merkel [electronic resource]

Summary
Germany's first female Chancellor Angela Merkel rose from humble roots to become the most powerful woman in the world. This fascinating portrait reveals how her astonishing ascent to power has been on her own terms-as a woman, a former East German, a research scientist and, as she sees it, a defender of Western democracy. The program recounts Germany's recent history as it shaped Angela Merkel's life story, speaking to people that were close to Merkel and knew her well. Drawing on archive, news footage and filming on location throughout Germany, it asks what really drives Angela Merkel and what has propelled her to succeed as one of the most unusual politicians in the world. Having stayed true to the principles of thrift and a belief in a strong Europe throughout her chancellorship, will she succeed in making spendthrift Germans of the whole of the Eurozone?
