As you sit in the evening before the televison and click between stations you only find crime films or murder stories, horrible! So you zap one more time and there is a familiar face with a large film camera and a magnificent tripod. He wanders through his small town and is shooting a movie as well as a busy director.
Then he is seen in the village church during a Sunday service. Since the same day there will be a village festival, he is also rapidly moving and covering it all cinematically. And not only that, on this occasion he makes a speech to his village neighbours and even films a marching band.
Since he has been filming for many years, he shows, to the great surprise of all, many of his old black-and-white films in his own cinema!
I have to say that this meeting with Fritz Kümmel in the Südwestrundfunk television channel on 6th of November at 8 pm, (in the best broadcasting time-slot) not only surprised but also pleased me. It shows, that non-professionals can attract the attention of the television companies.
Fritz Kümmel, congratulations on this brilliant TV appearance.
