A German sausage is the Wurst

 

Of course, you already knew this, but there's a lot more on these six CDs with a running time of almost seven hours that you've never heard of.

From Germany’s historical and current borders to national symbols like the Brandenburg gate and the Reichstag, from Luther and Goethe to sausages and beer, this BBC radio series investigates Germany's 600-year-old history. It examines the key moments that have defined its past, and explores the profound influence Germany's history, culture and inventiveness have had across Europe.

I found my copy in a second-hand shop but you can download all thirty episodes from the BBC's website at www.bbc.co.uk or iTunes.
