the difficulty for a show such as the giant saga is to create scenarios that reflect the history of the city where it's playing. in a word and that was not so hot the people in this region have always had to battle the north sea and keep the water at bay so cookoo concocted a story in which a giant comes to help them one hundred fifty thousand humans came to watch the story unfold as the giant divers do for look for him accompanied by her playful puppy. developing shoes have their work cut out for them two teams take turns jumping off a platform well clinging to cables to raise the face of the giant he maintains a speed of one kilometer per hour. others have to move.

the people remove the feet they have to make sure that they don't jump into the audience because it's quite a problem sometimes because the audience is quite close and you don't want to knock people over something like that so it's very challenging to make sure that he jumps straightforwards and that you don't run into people. at midday the girl and her dog take a rest in front of the old home from the famous leaning tower of late. and then don't lose their people and that's the extraordinary thing about rosa lux that's why people love them because they stop being pop it they stop being marionettes and you just look at the music at their face you look at their emotions and their movements you watch and take in their story. the family drama

12:39 am
here on patrick meyer is one of germany's leading wheelchair skaters but today he's struggling to reach the top of the half pike. i can't get as high as i want to. wheelchair skating is a relatively new discipline it began at the start of the millennium in the us the thirty three year old has been a serious wheelchair skater for four years and is passionate about the sport skating skating is a very free thing you don't go by rules but my feeling is. it's true to life it's fun and liberating on the fly. that something's young patrick particularly treasures at the age of nineteen he was involved in a serious car accident he spent months in a coma his right leg was amputated above the name but he refused to give up watching videos of wheelchair skaters inspired him as he fought to rebuild his life
12:40 am
. when i saw the first video i was still in the hospital. i knew that walking and running wouldn't be possible anymore but us and then i thought this is the goal i can pursue i want to do this but if. you're in patrick meyer competes regularly in tournaments for wheelchair motocross known as w.c. m.x. . two years ago he came in sixth at the world championships in texas points are awarded for each track of according to the level of difficulty and the standard of performance. just like regular skateboarding wheelchair skating is not without its risks. too long to civic sure it hurts a bit it always hurts when you fall but you know immediately what mistakes you made so you don't say annoyed for a long fight the best thing to do is get right back up and carry on which is what
12:41 am
i'd better do now. you know this morning it's in the field. once a month patrick meyer gives courses in wheelchair skating even those who don't want to enter competitive sports find the wheelchair training helps increase their independence. it's a form of self determination pursuits but it makes a real difference if you can get up onto a sidewalk yourself without help from others. that's something that skating does for you it gives you confidence. everybody needs to be able to move around movement is everything. in the lead up to a tournament patrick meyer is out on the halfpipe every day he trains for up to six hours a day skating is clearly much more than a hobby for him. to skate. but if i didn't have skating i wouldn't be able to get out of bed so it inspires me to keep going. and that doesn't only apply to skating but also two other day to day problems i have to face i take the same approach
12:42 am
there as in skating i might not make it tomorrow but eventually i'll get there. and eventually he makes it to the top of the half pipe. this singer and songwriter can't frank is actually known for melancholy slow beach tunes but on her latest album called bad behavior she speeds up the tempo notch and has created music that fits more into the pop and dance well frank is all strongly in but she relocated to berlin about fourteen years ago and our next report she tells us about the change she's made in her musical direction. frankie first made a name for herself with melancholy songs in the manner of folk music now she's reengineered herself. was. a response.

to her latest album is more than folk with electronic elements and much more energy . she recently performed in the german city of you know. that it had seen a shift folk music sugar stating what i've written a lot of folk music and i didn't want to repeat myself and it makes no sense for an artist to bring out yet another record of mournful ballots with a guitar accompaniment now want to be direct speak my mind and have fun. it's like maybe very danceable but it's also a critical political song against racism and homophobia. it's it's. just.

action the energy proved infectious and you know the audience abandoned their seats and started to jump around. frankie has come a long way. when thinking about our carbon footprint you probably don't consider that the food you eat also contributes greatly to it in fact by some estimates food production including growing farming processing transporting cooking and so on accounts for at least one fifth of global carbon emissions so how can we reduce our so called food print or one company cafeteria in sweden has an interesting idea.
12:48 am
from a hearty meal to deep fried foods to a healthy salad most campaigns offer a range of dishes but here in golf and already every meal comes with information on its carbon footprint head chef says it's more appetising than it might sound to me we don't change them last but we try to when we were by our meat try to buy meat on the food that makes butter for a moment like beef and more fish the more she can and of course more. the production of food generates a considerable amount of c o two. bring those on advises campaigns in restaurants on how to make their menu more climate friendly. that you should be able to find troubling information where you find food basically to make a dent in the climate and missions across europe and hopefully the water. just

opting for more fruit and vegetables and occasionally forgoing meat can help but does the extra information really change diners eating habits and usually take this favorite dish i think you can be said to show you from a sink and help me. help me to show. for some basically. i tend to go for the vegetarian option anyway and knowing that it's better for the environment as well means it makes sense to choose that more often as i take my notes are you seeing this it will probably give me remind me one more time that it's about the numbers and so sometimes he would trickle. so these small reminders could help consumers lean towards a healthier and more climate friendly choice. and finally it's time to take a trip and today we're going to explore the italian island of elba thanks to a viewer request from guatemala daniel wrote in to us wanting to know more about
