a clear leadership. protest and i was a very low violent become difficult for ordinary people to join and i think they were put off by some of the violence is what we tear our lives to speak to that even if people were very much sympathized with the economic problems underlying that they didn't want to get caught up in not violent. but nonetheless there are still a lot of grievances out there could you outline some of them. sure these began over the high cost of the thing flesh has been a problem in this country from that he is and the other big one is on employment as high as forty percent over the people on the set top box of the rest of the country everybody has a story about someone being highly educated but being unable to find a job over there to fight a decent job that not just their education. something that spread across the

a small star is a professor from the school of east asian studies at berlin's free university very good day thank you for spending time with us as with everything of course timing is key what's behind the surprise announcement first of all it's not a surprise at all that korea comes to north korea comes out at this point in time because also the foreign policy of north korea needs a direct contact a direct dialogue with its outer world in order to implement to realize the strategic goals now interesting if you if you look from the north korean perspective their approach seems to be two pronged on the one hand they're dialing up tensions with the us. yes and there seems to be a slight warming up of relations between john yang and seoul. what's the tactic behind that are they trying to drive a wedge between those two allies. here is the board understand that it was always it has always been the strategy of north korea to have this wedge between the u.s.
6:09 pm
and south korea because there are conflicting interests here so that's nothing new but it's of course a very important good positive step that north korea came out and proposed these dial the style look with with south korea and i think it's a very good opportunity for deescalating the comfortable situation right now all right well on the opposite spectrum of course is that they're rushing it up of tensions because this brings us to that provoke of nuclear button comment by u.s. president donald trump in a tweet aimed at the north korean leader he disparaged the size of that country's nuclear arsenal it was in response to a speech from kim in which he warned the u.s. that the nuclear launch button was always within easy reach this is what he said mr time said i too have a nuclear button but it is a much bigger and more powerful one than his and my button works.
6:10 pm
i mean i don't know how helpful it is to start pushing in southers buttons it's a tweet war for now on a serious note how how dangerous is it that this might actually get out of hand and somebody might actually pursue but now at some point. well i think first of all the common by donald trump was to be expected and that is his way of reacting to that kind of situation but after i would say it's still it's quite a positive or at least neutral reaction to to north korea and i hope it's stays on that level but of course it is a very very dangerous situation but if we look carefully at the new year's statement of the north korean leader he tries between the lines he tries to to make clear that everything is under control so there would wouldn't be a ok i would accept you asian where somebody by accident would push the but because he has it under his control i think he was very clear on that point so you think

to do if you're flattered but even considering you me when you have a moment of reflection you go i have no idea how to do or. how does film music work and who's behind it the documentary score answers some of these questions it offers a behind the scenes look for example at recordings for the james bond film casino royale score it does reveal a few tricks but it still leaves the sense of magic intact. most directors don't know how to convert emotions into musical. or into music so the composer has to you know act almost like a therapist and go through all this mishmash of what the director is saying. and push a motion to the next level whether for john's or for star wars film scores can help us feel a part of the action. oh right you're watching the other news with have
