SBS ONE, 8.30pm

Watched by more than seven mil­lion view­ers when it aired in Ger­many, three- part mini- se­ries Gen­er­a­tion War caused a wave of pub­lic de­bate in its home coun­try and a blan­ket of crit­i­cism from Pol­ish crit­ics and view­ers, who be­lieved it tried to ex­cuse Ger­man ac­tions dur­ing World War II. Even so, the fic­ti­tious his­tor­i­cal se­ries was still a hit in Poland. Set in Ber­lin, 1941, five young friends’ lives are changed for­ever as they nav­i­gate the un­con­scionable moral con­ces­sions of life un­der Hitler. The story is nar­rated by dec­o­rated of­fi­cer Wil­helm ( Volker Bruch), who is off to the east­ern front with his ide­al­is­tic younger brother Fried­helm ( Tom Schilling).
