Banned German satire "Die Anstalt".

Biting Satire about western government and media reporting from the German comedy program "Die Anstalt". The program was actually banned at one point (then brought back due to pressure of the German people).

Of course be sure that subtitles are on if you do not know German.

1. "Die Anstalt" is a wordplay.

It means "institution" and refers to the old-fashioned german term "Sende-Anstalt" ("broadcasting institution" for a TV-channel.

Colloquially, "Anstalt" has become to specifically mean "mental asylum". The format of the show "Die Anstalt" is that the stand-up comedians are really the rambling inmates of a mental asylum.
