a new craze among grown men. and flower power we visit a modern day hippie colony in poland. in the one nine hundred sixty eight a session guitarist called jimmy page was looking for a new nine for his band when he remembered what the who's drama keith moon had said to them any band you play in will go down like a led zeppelin well you know now that led zeppelin didn't crash and burn but rather rose to rock n roll fame fifty years ago today they played their first gig and have since gone on to sell three hundred million albums worldwide so this day they're popular and hailed as the pioneers of hard rock. london in december two thousand and seven we led zeppelin are performing live again for the twenty thousand fans in attendance it was
12:32 pm
a dream come true. there are twenty million fans wanted tickets with this concert it was a night to remember but it remained the only one of its kind we were so happy that we were actually getting it right and really enjoying it and taking it beyond what we thought we were about that might do a moments in it where we just took off and pushed off in some place the responsibility of doing that for might so weak for the rest of time is a different thing. this week pretty good at what we do but we shouldn't be the tail should never whack the dog. jimmy page was already a successful session musician when he found it in nine hundred sixty eight so was

bassist and guitarist john paul joe it's ok it's also invited to relatively unknown musicians to join his ship singer robert plant and strawman john boehner. they can we have them took off straight away. the passion energy and musical diversity have led zeppelin fascinated fans and critics alike and to this day. it often is you know each of those four guys is a genius and they fused in such a way that every aspect of their music profited from their own exceptional cases it's i can't think of another at least not any rock down to that's like the. big break came in one nine hundred sixty nine with the release of a second album let's send to.
12:34 pm
the album went to number one in the us knocking the beatles having read out of the top spot. but let's dip in the head most often then just great songs. robert plant was definitely a sex symbol so that there were a lot of women and likely a few men too who would have liked to get to know him better. his own lot in church is that all cocky swagger and the strutting around that was all part of it and then there was jimmy page on stay. the incarnation of the cool guitarist.
12:35 pm
the group put out one hits album. and it too is great ever they get ever more spectacular. lit second filled stadiums around the globe and set new standards they were one of the first rock bands to to with their own private jets. their lives were completely disconnected from reality they played out exclusively on stage and private jets and hotel room table with groupies and so on the total rock star stereotype. but like many about stars of that era let seven also paid a heavy price for that lifestyle. in september nine hundred eighty excess of alcohol consumption caused the death of their drama john bonham. the band's three remaining members were shocked and called it quits. robert plant it was crystal
12:36 pm
clear without bottom the band didn't exist anymore and never would again was mainly him that felt that way. but the group to patients. in london where john bought him son jason played the drums. but to this day fans are still longing for the big grainy and. there are just two super groups who could in theory launch that kind of comeback tour the other would be about and you could say that each of them would probably eclipse everything that had come before this for the others and there was. whether such a pill will ever happen is doubtful but for lead second chance springs eternal.

a toy for even pick up. to a class or does he go to the one time people were happy just to own a monkey or a honda tax. that generation reached the age where their midlife crisis became a factor but they had more money by that. and they started wanting to have a more powerful engine more fun writing. and so we've always tried to fulfill their customer's wishes and give it to them. some people say that after seven dead bodies keep growing and maybe they're right. well i'll let that one slide now we go from small bikes to big planes pilot was long a job mainly done by men but that is slowly changing more and more women are interested in the profession but the numbers are still very lopsided in germany there are

she likes to encourage those people all she needs now is a photo of herself and her team in the cessna over hamburg. one last look at the new philharmonie concert hall and she heads back to the airfield. back home yulia uploads the pictures to instagram because she has so many followers post only counts as a hit if she gets two thousand likes she can't wait to see how this one will do. she's not the only pilot who's active on social media. and i think people are fascinated because it's an area where people don't normally get to pick behind the scenes and then of course the woman who flies is still something special. right off she gets fourteen hundred likes for this post and yulia hype and plans to take more stunning photos on her next flight. now we have a little something for all the home improves among you in our d.i.y.

for free. the polish hippie movement of today is similar to our environmental movement. probably a good quality the only it's not very organized. but it is good that it exists because it's focused on what we need today. harmony with nature and not dedicated to consumption. preparing meals together is part of daily communal life young people from all over the world are burning to make the polish national dish. most of the young people only live here for a short time before they move on to the next kanye and return to university where there are jobs. communes like this are growing all over europe there booming in poland too. i get calls three four times
