    Episode 1: Oude Kijk in 't Jatstraat

    First aired: Tuesday, 5 January 2016 at 17.32 hours

    In many cities you'll find historic streets with unusual names. Sometimes the origin of those names is traceable, but the Groninger ‘Oude Kijk in ‘t Jatstraat’ is an exception.

    There are different stories about the origin of this name. City guide Arend Jan Wonink shares the legend. Does ‘Bommen Berend’ really have something to do with the name? Jona van Keulen, archivist at the Groninger archives and city historian Beno Hofman find some evidence.
