German film fans reel from burning problem

Much of nation's cinematic heritage endangered by flammable celluloid it was filmed on.

    Germany is facing a burning problem over its movie history, with many fearing vital cinematic heritage could be lost.

    The national film archives are struggling to make digital copies of old film reels, which were made of a potentially explosive material.

    In fact, the vast film archive is so dangerous it must be stored in a bunker outside the German capital.
