10 Questions

The year the Wall fell

In 1989, slammed the Chinese regime studentenprotest in tiananmen square are brutally put down. VTM sent his first program, Technotronic scored (from Aalst!) has a worldwide hit with ‘Pump up the jam’ and Patrick Haemers kidnapped Paul Vanden Boeynants – if you don’t know who Patrick Haemers and Paul Vanden Boeynants, you are too young and you need to pay better attention during the history lesson.

And, oh yes: in Berlin was the Wall – you know. Or not?

Kenji: “Why was that Wall there?’

Shania: “Was that not with two different generals who disagreed? … …

Kenji: “Why was that Wall there?’

Shania: “Was that not with two different generals who disagreed? … Yes, I know it, say!’

Kenji (16) and Shania Gooris (17) are the son and daughter of Kelly Pfaff and Sam Gooris. For the program of Greetings from was that family by VTM teruggeflitst to 1989, the year in which Kelly Pfaff twelve was. Or rather: they were there with an old Range Rover drive away. Without a smartphone or internet, they had three days to spend in a villa where the time in 1989 was at a stand-still. For example, with a cd player, a beeldbuistelevisie and an analog camera with a roll of film – difficult to get a selfie, let alone to roll to replace it!

Kenji: “So’n rolleke, that’s really a merde chez, eh. Ge must be so on that tooth.”

Shania: “Yes, we are really lamzakken.’

For the parents it was a nostalgietrip, for the children a voyage of discovery. Everything on the eighties I think count, “says Shania. “The music was better. That had real lyrics.’

Presenter An Lemmens arose in eightiesstijl and had a hairstyle with so much volume, that a hippo could hide. Also the family Gooris-Pfaff had in the verkleedkoffer diving.

Kenji: “For me, that doesn’t fit very.’

Shania: “Ye just looks like a hipster.’

Kenji: “A hipstar?’

Shania: “Yes, that’s what they called those people.’

Kenji: ‘that no women, then?’

Shania: “I can still find it hard to be a hipper say?!’

Kenji: ‘Sorry.’

Greetings from is somewhat reminiscent of The Pre history: a nostalgic soundtrack is the history of a year of overflow. Only the formula of Greetings from a much more personal, and in the first episode of the new season, it was disarming to Shania and Kenji with each other to see deal. They were funny and spontaneous and blew up their pa, which is crude and weak jokes tappend by the broadcast banjerde, just of the screen. Of these two, we hear, even, whether or not on television.

Shania: “So, to see if you do something, you’re blushing.’

Kenji: “That is because here is so hot. The heating condition at 500 degrees.’

Greetings from. Tuesday, 20: 35 hours, VTM.
