a limpid gold winners of the onus of shank gold and bruno mars so. i mean basically have those. shows we have no rules so in monday we push more in another way the don't push so it's kind of. challenge you're not the main competition we push more into focus. shows such as we hope and we can execute what we want. they were also free to choose their own choreography for the parts which they skate. the other skaters have only had seven weeks to learn the choreography created for them by holiday on ice and veteran robin cousins to once one olympic gold.
2:33 pm
it was going to challenge for me is just allowing myself to. use my history and for me the most important thing is to make sure that i have. a collaborative team if i'm doing multiple shows what did i do last year what can i change how can i make that fresh who was involved a few years ago that wasn't involved before and it's always keeping the team motivated i'm moving. down ice began in one thousand nine hundred forty three in the united states the costume story ideas and choreography have come a long way in seventy five years over the decades it's grown with new characters and many stars it's also chalked up a number of accolades it's the most visited eye show in the world with over three hundred twenty nine million tickets sold it's also appeared in the guinness book of world records. and.

olympic skater valentino mark a from italy has partnered up this year with the american and show veteran collin grafton they'll lead audiences through the story of showtime it chronicles holiday on ice his history over seventy five years it's valentino's first time skating in such a production i was a bit afraid i am still because sometimes it's like very hard but we are a beautiful group it's a beautiful family to family and ice and i think robin maybe knew what he was doing when you're sparing us up. we jelled immediately and normally i'd be really conservative about skating with someone who's never done a show ever but i mean valentino just held it so well and we clicked right away and we worked really hard the last couple weeks and i feels like we've been skating together for a long time this is also new territory for the german olympic champions is just one

the house also has a wine cellar with a small bar. the color scheme of the retro look wallpaper harmonizes with the british colonial style leather armchair a table made from recycled wooden pallets provides the finishing touch it's a home full of memories and atmosphere. so i really appreciate you new here and i think you could by next meet together next time away harry and his house in sept a personal home inspired by very personal experiences. every week we feature at least one female designer or artist who was achieving great things in the creative realm and while we are far from equality with our male counterparts it's not uncommon for women today to be at the top of a field that men ones totally dominated it is easy however to forget the pioneering women who have. pave the way now though an exhibition and resident pays tribute to
2:47 pm
some of those forgotten souls. from graphic designers drafts women and sculptors to furniture makers and interior architects many talented women worked with distinction at her workshops and dresden between one thousand nine hundred and one nine hundred thirty eight. today they and their achievements have been largely forgotten. seen here and in china this is a coveted created by bruno palmer a famous architect and designer. that for decades people were unaware that the inlays had been designed by his wife. so there's one cupboard in the museum labelled simply boon or poet paul's name is completely absent as nobody knew better who's. carl schmidt the founder of the hell or our workshops consciously retreated female artists and designers back then precious few women were permitted to go to
2:48 pm
college but he saw their creative potential the decision to employ women was in itself up on guard. and was off to remember at the time even though women were winning awards and being published and featured in exhibitions there was still talk of them being unable to think three dimensionally and not having a technical mind. and their designs move used as a nice for decorating your home. anything female was dismissed and devalued female us was considered a mature ish at risk by dilettante in the early twentieth century women were expected to be wives and mothers another reason for their often limited period of employment in hell or out after getting married most stopped working while the memory of their creative output became increasingly neglected. one
2:49 pm
of the truly outstanding designers from the dutch of action was get. she had a fantastic body of work but the thirteen hundred sketches she executed had yet to find a home in any collection. the works of deceased female designers are treated completely differently to those of men. and. the exhibition at the museum in dresden is the first to put the female designers from hell or all center stage. to try to yes it's high time and it's a good time to do it but you could also say we're twenty five years to late to get it to speak to this show against invisibility gives these pioneering women the recognition they so richly deserve. on to this week's series now where we're making the rounds to the various christmas markets and this provides us with a chance to taste some special holiday treats from all over the country well today

county needs cabbage originates in the eastern mediterranean region where it was grown some two thousand years ago in germany it's a favorite mainly of the north it's also popular in central europe north america and africa holds true it doesn't like to experiment when it comes to preparing it. for me kale grows best when cooked or smoked sausage. but when they start molding kale and they can make a warm hot i'm not so sure i could eat that he does it for us because it's gotta get some frost because then it turns the starch of sugar from the ground. this typical bream in winter days can be found on the christmas market beside the real but these are. a little past the kale for the stand just across the way his restaurant's kitchen he agrees with the farmer about the role of frost. flosses that's a frost is better for the kale and they've always said that kale tastes best once

shipping the christmas markets on the banks of the bays a river with its medieval theme stalls we live this golden age. the stallholders dressed like hands yet technicians certainly know all about traditional kale dishes. on the first thing i'd recommend would be old spice it's typical for kale. after a stroll around the historical old town of the market stalls a stop to walmart they saw just the thing i get a little stand off as genuine plame and curly kale. go to building. a house. the idea behind the canal box is that you can take it and walk around the christmas market with it the advantages are that it keeps your hands warm but you can eat it
2:54 pm
on the run and you don't have to get it all over yourself and pick up the. kale goes with fresh smoked pork chops boiled sausage and potatoes. but how does it taste from the kale box to go. see most of the delicious i think the two can't do without it. obviously. the northern german city of women in winter is a fairy tale come true. and finally before we go we want to let you in on this week's drawing now since christmas is not far off we'd like to hear your version of the song silent night we've put together a medley that will share with you now. we . know.
