Rivals on the pitch

North Rhine-Westphalia: until today there can be no talk about a shared identity of Rhinelanders, Westphalians and Lippers. In this “hyphen-state” people rather feel connected to their own region but foremost there still exists a local commitment. May it be the village, the town or the area. A lot of potential for conflict, often enough cause for mutual malice, but rarely really evil. The series “Rivals in NRW” takes on this state – entertaining, benign, deliberate and with many surprises.
