Harold Marcuse on 'I have a famous name' (in German, with subtitles)

This is from a long-running TV quiz show (since the 1970s) 'I Have a Famous Name' ("Ich trage einen grossen Namen") by the South German Channel 3 (SWR). It was taped in Feb. 2016, aired June 6, 2016. That episode included Matteo Pannini and Harold Marcuse--the latter as grandson of philosopher Herbert Marcuse.

The moderator asks questions about Herbert's relationship to his mentor Martin Heidegger, his emigration from Germany in 1933, his return (& fame) during the student movement of the late 1960s, and what happened to his cremated remains after he died unexpectedly in Germany in 1979.
