\n* In ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'', set in German-occupied territory during World War II, the episode "After the Ball" revolves around a ball held by the Germans in the hope of promoting good relations with the locals (or at least of getting some photos that can be used as propaganda claiming good relations with the locals). It inspires the episode's central character to rebel against her OverprotectiveDad and try to have a social life of her own, with what might be charitably described as mixed results.
