Der Televisionär: Wolfgang Menges transmediales Werk.
Kritische und dokumentarische Perspektiven

Lisa Gotto / Gundolf S. Freyermuth (Hg.)

Wolfgang Menge (1924-2012) was one of the most important screenwriters of the post-war German Federal Republic. Television plays like “The Dubrow Crisis”, “The Million Game” or “Smog” wrote TV history, series like “Steel Net”, “A Heart and Soul” or “Motzki” inspired and provoked an audience of millions. As a talk show host, Menge became one of the most prominent heads of television – as a writer of radio plays, plays and films, novels and non-fiction, he tried out transmedial writing.

This volume combines critical and documentary perspectives and brings together analyses of his work, testimonies from companions as well as key historical texts about and by Wolfgang Menge.
