Andreas Pfeiffer and Mariela Gettler as the presenting duo

“Austria – the full story” is presented by ORF presenters Andreas Pfeiffer and Mariela Gettler. Starting with the major issues of today, they look for answers in the past.

Andreas Pfeiffer uses digital studio animation to explain how we became where we are today. Augmented reality representations provide insights using 3D animated maps, statistics and many effects that explore all the possibilities of technology.

Mariela Gitler searches for places where the past touches the present. The elaborately produced game scenes take you back to the fascinating moments in Austria's development and allow the audience to immerse themselves in the worlds of historical experience.

Elaborate Reenactment, Scientific Advisory Board

Each episode of the historical series highlights individual dramatic destinies that guide the subject in question: the mayor of Vienna who finds himself caught between the front lines of the conflict between the Habsburgs and Premysl, the “plague doctor” who struggles in vain to attract the attention of the imperial authorities, or a forced Jewish convert who meets an intellectual patriarch of Jewish politics in this era at the newly founded University of Vienna.

When it came to research and production, ORF III relied on first-class technical expertise and established its own scientific advisory board. The country's leading historians have followed the project closely from the beginning and have also provided scientifically sound information about the central questions of the TV series in interviews.
