Mach's Gut! is a German-language BBC schools TV series from the 1980s and 1990s, covering German Language for secondary school pupils.
Everyday life of teenagers in Austria is shown through a series of short documentary film sequences - billed as "mini-programmes" by the BBC - in each episode. In between, an English-speaking presenter talks about what the teenagers are doing and what vocabulary they use.
The series followed a similar formula to the earlier Alles Klar, which it replaced for the same audience, just without the studio-based sketches of its predecessor.
