Berlin Wall - November 9, 1989

This clip is another segment of the BBC's Breakfast News, broadcast on the morning of November 10, 1989. 

It includes scenes from the prior night when East Berliners were able to freely travel to West Berlin - for the first time in decades - after their ID cards were stamped. 

Ron McCullagh reports from Berlin as events occurred on the night of November 9th.  The crush of people leaving East Berlin seems to have surprised the soldiers guarding the checkpoints.
