In his latest edition, Kurt Aeschbacher again pulled all the stops. However, the large farewell certificates left the SRF legend to others.
So now he is there for the last time, after 18 years "Aeschbacher" and exactly 785 shipments. Kurt Aeschbacher carefully tries to thank the audience for his loyalty, wants a good new year and says goodbye to the audience.
He has previously distributed the large bouquet of red roses to his employees and the public, but the great farewell certificates are missing. Not even tears floating on the moderator. And this despite the fact that in standing ovations he spoke at the beginning of his last release of a "tear-rich start".
As a guest with friends
In fact, the Bernese are still true to their Dernière on Swiss television. As an experienced confieriecier, he finally knows when to leave the show to others. Tenor Christian Jott Jenny, for example, who in his honor beats "My Way" and "Time to Say Goodbye" into the microphone, or SRF director Ruedi Matter, who exclaims "the master of the conversation" in front of cameras with awesome words ("Your time called the Aeschbacher era goes down in history ”).
That it was also Ruedi Matter, who had to inform SRF-Talker in the summer that his mission was canceled for economic reasons, did not matter. Because Kurt Aeschbacher celebrates his last show as a separation in the good. Long-time friends like his former partner Andrin Schweizer are there as well as members of his team today and earlier, the former head of entertainment Christoph Gebel too.
He hopes, according to Aeschbacher, that "in recent years I have been monitored again and again not just out of boredom, but also out of genuine interest. And as if to emphasize this claim, TV-Talker is again raising a particularly brilliant amount of guests during it last shipment from the laboratory bar.
Talking to such different guests as the Swiss stand-up comedian Hazel Brugger, opera star Cecilia Bartoli, benamputat Johannes Floors, the two ETH researchers Peter Fankhauser and Linus Isler together with the robot dog Anymal or the triplets already 18 years ago Aeschbi can once again prove that in a one-to-one talk, few can fool him.
Of course, he helps guests feel comfortable with him. As a kind of "anti-Shawinski", Aeschbacher stands for conversation situations where this is certainly safe. But that's precisely why he succeeds in addressing sensitive issues as well. For example, Hazel Brugger talks openly about her background, Cecilia Bartoli confirms her fear of flying, and the triplets Brigitte Hagen, Elisabeth Simon and Daniela Hagen reported fun on their problems with the men's choice – despite the 30 minutes of excessive length, the program goes as fled.
In the end, it glitters, Kurt Aeschbacher goes on a farewell tour of his studio, and with the words "get curious, it will be good" good man says goodbye to Leutschenbach from the SRF screen. Without pathos, without exaggerated feelings, without disagreement, but with a warm smile. You will miss him.
The last issue of "Aeschbacher" was sent on SRF 1 at 21.40 on Sunday 30 December. With Swisscom TV Replay you can watch the program up to seven days after the broadcast.
