A TV documentary about the star reporter, foreign correspondent and programme creator illuminates the career of HFK - as he liked to call himself - and thus the development of the concept of culture in radio and television, long before the boulevard. 

ORF Legends: Heinz Fischer-Karwin promises a journey to the beginning of Austria's media production. The man who was once brought in to save high culture from the "light" entertainment from America is a highly political man who comments sensitively on the developments of the times. But his hobbyhorse remains culture. Here he feels at home and like no other.

Rare archive finds from radio and television as well as interviews with colleagues and friends break through the wall of aloofness attributed to the star reporter.
