Die Wächter

TV Mini-Series

Country: West Germany

Genre: Sci-Fi



In a future society where the majority of people live in sprawling conurbations and are kept happy on a diet of banal entertainments (rather like today!), a youth called Rob (Martin Tempest) flees from the boarding school to which he has been sent after the death of his parents, and ends up crossing the Barrier separating the 'Conurb' from the open fields of the 'County'. Here, an elite of 'Guardians' lead a more relaxed and cultured, almost feudal, life; and when Rob is adopted into the warmth of a family, he begins to believe in the beneficence of the organisation of his society - until, that is, a series of events confront him with the chilling reality that lies behind his new-found idyll.


  • Comprising 6 episodes, each approximately 45 minutes in length
  • Based on the 1970 young-adult novel "The Guardians" by British science fiction writer John Christopher (1922-2012), who also wrote the novels that were adapted for the television series The Tripods (1984-1985)
  • A German (Region 2) DVD of this miniseries has been released (Amazon UK link at top right of this page), though without subtitles.
