Description
Dieter Thomas Heck, actually Carl-Dieter Heckscher, was a German presenter, pop singer, actor, showmaster, producer and entertainer.

With the "ZDF hit parade", which he moderated from 1969 to 1984, he became famous. But Heck not only moderated the "hit parade", he also stood for big Saturday evening shows like "Melodies for millions", "Music is in the air", "The Super Hitparade" (all ZDF), for the "German Schlagerfestspiele" or " The pop parade of folk music "(ARD) in front of the camera. In addition, he presented successful entertainment programs such as "The Pyramid" (1978 to 1994) and "Your commitment please" (1987-1990)

Heck had one of his last major public appearances in February 2017 at the awarding of the Golden Camera for his life's work. He seemed tired, unlike before. Ten years earlier, he had moderated his last shows in show business after half a century. He also brought his biography on the market. Occasionally he appeared as a guest on television shows and was also on stage as a singer.

Heck suffered from a chronic lung disease; He died on August 23, 2018 at the age of 80 years in a Berlin hospital.
