David Hasselhoff, better known for his roles in "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch" released a song titled, "Looking for Freedom" the same year the Berlin Wall came down.
It went to number one on the German pop charts, and he performed it on top of the Berlin Wall to a million people during the biggest New Year's Party Germany had ever seen. 25 years later, David revisits the now-reunited capital of Germany investigating what is left of the Wall, and explores what it meant in the context of the Cold War as a scar in the heart of Europe dividing Communism in the East from democracy in the West.
Along his journey, he meets extraordinary people who dreamt of freedom and risked their lives trying to overcome the dreaded Berlin Wall.
Hasselhoff vs. The Berlin Wall premieres on Thursday (6 November) at 10:00pm (SIN/HK) on the National Geographic Channel.
