This Les Holroyd composition turned out to be prophetic, halfway between the writing of the song and the release of the album, the Berlin Wall came down; the song featured on the Guten Abend, Deutschland
TV programme, was recorded in East Berlin and was broadcast live across both Germanies - the first time this had happened since the nation was divided.
Another Les Holroyd song, "Berlin
", has a similar theme.
