The German Programme: Partner Video Sequences
Partner Video Sequences is a unit of the ITV Schools series The German Programme from the 1980s, covering German language for Secondary pupils.
A set of programmes for beginners studying German, mostly in the early years of secondary school, following a German family in their everyday life, with some explanations in English.

Teacher's notes including transcripts of the German sequences in the programmes were available for £1.50. In order to include accurate transcriptions of the finished programmes the notes were not sent to schools until just before the first broadcasts in spring 1984.
Thames Television International released the unit on VHS video around 1986, priced £25 plus VAT according to an advert in the Times Educational Supplement of 31/10/1986, p.34.
