The village is dying out

In the documentary “City, Country, End?” by the ZDF magazine “Frontal 21,” reporters drive across Germany to get an insight into the situation in rural areas of the country. They visit villages where the internet and mobile phone reception don’t always work, where the immediate supply of a bakerys, grocery stores, medical care or restaurants is no longer available. These communities therefore often feel like they are not the focus of current politics. In Germany, for example, there are more radio holes than in Albania. Rural regions thus have less chance of development. Some villages therefore try to revive their town centres by initiatives of their own, for example by opening a village shop.

Previous infrastructures, such as water pipes, telephone and streets are now represented by the internet.
