9:30 pm
how do you plan sustainable when the scope of the house. starts january thirteenth on w. welcome to highlight show i or louise house and i will be here with you for the next half an hour taking you through the best of all stories from the previous week is a taste of what's in store. a life choices to get is the key to the danes happiness . rock n roll a joint even belong girl and he's dead devil stuff it's.
9:31 pm
sweet to bend you a trip to austria psychiatrist for to cerate. we kick start the show with a great philosophy on life if you speak more than one language you will not know that sometimes there isn't a direct translation for what you're trying to say in some languages certain words just don't exist and one example is the danish word who got you just can't translate it but it basically means enjoying life simple pleasures be that spending time with friends and family going for a wall core simply looking up at the sky all signify who go and since the danes are usually ranked highly amongst the happiest people in the world we thought we'd get a lesson in how to live a more hooghly life. surveys indicate that danes are among the happiest people on earth. in fact the un's world happiness report regularly
9:32 pm
puts denmark at the top of the list. what is it about the danes that makes them such happy people. might be king has written a book about all this and he believes he has the answer. he has to do with togetherness it has to do with the uk we see it as part of our national identity the same way the americans see freedom we think of something as part of our d.n.a. . the word who get means being comfortable and contented often while enjoying the simpler pleasures of life. here are a few examples. it's having of kabul for warm chocolate all warm and some basic needs at some and the talk. a little bit deeper than the
9:33 pm
killing of the couch well we take you can't make yourself heard is also maybe watching a film or reading a book and brutal isn't. mike peeking is the c.e.o. of the happiness research institute in copenhagen he says that the danes unique attitude towards life plays a major role in their sense of wellbeing. than we've been curious about why denmark does well in the happiness ranks and we've looked at the political system and that's a big part of the explanation you know high level of trust your social security and those with health care but that also explains why the other nordic countries do well so we wanted to understand why does that look better than then sweden finland iceland and and and now we are spending quality time with family and friends or enjoying homemade cinnamon buns that's. danes really love christmas time
9:34 pm
traditional apple tarts are on sale at christmas markets throughout copenhagen. so is brook or danish mulled wine. particularly amusement park is decked out with a sea of lights mike the king says winter is the peak season for good. while it is practiced throughout the year i think for the winter period it becomes almost a survival strategy it's a way of getting the best out of your time of year which is doc and cold and wet and we're forced into forced. the best place to experience is in danish homes the danes have more living space per person and the other european country and they make their surroundings as comfortable as possible. life is important too. there's a reason why we use twice as much candle wax as number two in europe which is australia because we enjoy lighting that is at the low end of the temperature scale
9:35 pm
so we do a warm up more to soft diffused lights to create a nice atmosphere in a room. but danes also like to have nice things around the house northern europe is known for its design concepts like lamps by pulling an accent and chairs by on a are cops and cortlandt but do these things actually make people happy the notion or the concept of something that for danes is just a word or describes a situation and or a state of mind more than a design i don't think you can say that it's a sign it's a sign there is. doing something to create but i think it's something that's more ingrained or maybe internalized in our culture a simple walk outside can also be good it doesn't cost anything and it makes you feel good he shouldn't be. about consumerism you could also use.
9:36 pm
as the get out of jail card if something is too expensive or if you walk into a restaurant it's too expensive you can say sure you find a place that's more your friends or your let's find a place that's more so you should be inexpensive because it's about equality and it's about simple precious. danes call that special cozy christmas feeling. and the focus is not on expensive presents it's on being together with family and friends that's the true spirit of christmas and not just in denmark. during which a lot of is sorts of bring you as well as some the course that might mean a stroll in the park but father says it means a huge adrenaline rush on a man who can't get enough of this boss is a frenchman known as roll of and he designed a unique role
9:37 pm
a suit that is fitted with thirty two rollers all over the body he can basically roll in any position he likes and since he is a monster the author of rolling he created a suit for girl lighting or skating on the ice. roller man. is trying out some blades. he shoots down the icy track at seventy kilometers per hour like a human bobsled his head just ten centimeters from the ice. he calls this brand new version of a role in the extreme sport invented buggy ice. the perfect feeling is a feeling. when you make mistakes you hear that that the noise is changing when and when every blade is is on the right position it just like. when something's wrong as. i sunfire and see good and i
9:38 pm
feel some fifty kilometers east of the capital me go. adrenaline junkies come here to race on skates. or hurtle down the lose track breakneck speeds. and he is the craziest of them all brawn told from friends is full body suit is studded with fourteen ice skate blades a prototype that's only been tried once before. the first suspicion i had which i loved is intercounty you watch and then you see the people wrong direction the trees going over you and the sky is wrong direction so so if the world is changing around you because of the gravity the direction. this is. in the original version of the suit as the roller mat. speeds up to one hundred twenty kilometers an hour. the thirty two rollers let him slip across
9:39 pm
a smooth surface is in every conceivable position. it may look pretty dangerous but it's meticulously planned out. sometimes i go even buy food to know each corner it's truck it's crosswords. so i know everything in my head i can visualize in three d. whole districts like so it's a question of preparation you don't go just like this. drawing you brando invented is thirty two wheel roller sued over twenty years ago while studying industrial design. now he's selling his invention so much of it has to be done by hand it to suit costs around six thousand seven hundred euros. he also warns money with t.v. appearances and advertising even if he makes
9:40 pm
a living from his invention rondo's says it's not primarily about money. when you will have this for the first time. your. connection to the world is changing you are not. you're not a normal human everything you touch the touch wood the reels it looks more robotic deeply your identity the image you sent to the other people is different. over the years brando is refined to suit more and more modifying it for a variety of services this is the ski version and he's got his sights set on new goals as well. i think we can go like that is easily fifty so if you take him at a more we've good irenaeus to work on irony. i would like to work with some models in sight like electric motor was my dream is to be faster than a construct even
9:41 pm
a flat i want that i can produce the suit cheaper that's for christmas choose to buy it. there's no doubt that the suit is a real eye catcher. and it may well be the most impressive and dangerous way to speak. impressive it certainly is and you won't catch me trying it out in a hurry let's turn now to focus on two german artists who have a more tranquil passion and that is lighting up forests with their projections and imagery they use an innovative combination of techniques bringing life to the darkest of nights the images they produce of both magical and mesmerizing the also prefer to not digitally manipulate anything in post-production so the key for them
9:42 pm
is in the preparation and that can take hours in the cold winter nights. glowing shapes in untouched nature surrealistic images from the short film lucid by the german artists collective. and none of this is done with computer animation even images that seem inexplicable are real objects and were actually installed in the surroundings. and freakish one sure put on lot of physical work and creativity into their art. among other things they use luminescent wires and objects to create their illusions
9:43 pm
. reviews and the things that glows it all depends on how you stage it taking. the techniques and materials i use range from household items for example the sphere shape as a layer of ikea to projections for example we have one shot with a triangle we cut it out of cardboard and then just project it a colored light onto it. there's some point here whatever when there's a bit. in twenty fourteen the artist duo shot the short film bioluminescent forest here to all the light effects are projected directly into the setting rather than manipulating the images on a computer. and fish on sure employ and even now protect knology for this called projection mapping parts of the forest are illuminated effects on irregular surfaces and textures are taken into account
9:44 pm
this requires not only a precise plan but also patient. especially when the illuminated objects are not only three dimensional but also animate. usually we project light onto inanimate objects but we also wanted to use animals ones that don't move much or that hold still for a while but with a frog we have to film for five hours because it kept jumping away because. for other projects the light artists bring a bit of nature into the city. for example their new project in paris in twenty fifteen. astonished the audience with the projection of a gigantic spider. first they had to build a cardboard model of the building and film the spider. then they projected the video onto the inside of the building. for the illusion to be perfect the
9:45 pm
dimensions and perspectives have to correspond precisely. when it is mr noir for us it's important to just trying out new techniques for example in our next project we might work with fire or with water or whatever. but with a wide range of things we don't want to limit ourselves i think that's what enables us to always have new themes and to be able to convey a feeling. but i hunt will continue to create illusions in the future without image editing using physical exertion and ingenious idea. why you might have an artist that we have a winter theme running through the show today on their supporters in the exception we met a couple who searched for twenty years to find the perfect spot to build their dream home they found it on a peninsula in norway above the arctic circle the shell like home is now their own
9:46 pm
little private sanctuary where they can go to hibernate whenever they so desire. the lincoln peninsula lies north of the arctic circle this holiday home is perfectly suited to the cold climate of northern norway where snow covers the ground for roughly half the year it was built by hot part kramer and tova felt hello welcome to my cabin come inside. the heart of the building is the living area with its floor to ceiling windows which afford a stunning view of the water this two hundred square meter bungalow is hot board kramer's entsch over felts weekend for a treat the retiree's spend as much time here is possible i and i one of the scientists. looking at the sea.

9:49 pm
jenison designed the cabin and chose materials like wood which will withstand the harsh arctic climate for many years. it's untreated. grayish look but still it's a warm wood on the outside cedar which of course and this climate also is. very well suited. turns your silver grey in time. towards the fountain hubbard. framer spent plenty of time outside if the weather permits it sometimes they can observe reindeer all whales at sea and in the winter they sometimes see the northern lights this is why they love being so far north. it's that they are. not the temperature.
9:50 pm

9:52 pm
visitors at the so-called place yes no cake. course i don't know cannot find our poll very fluffy very large when you if you get it fresh it's quite magical by certain recommended reporters and people. but operating at sky high bakery has its pitfalls. about three thousand four hundred forty metres the boiling point is different so if we know that the weather will change will produce the biscuit bases a day early because otherwise they might not be so fluffy and could fall apart on inside us and if so shouldn't. milk eggs flour sugar that's all. kinds of smarm doesn't require any delicate preparation just mix the milk in flour then separate the eggs and beat the egg white with sugar until stick. it's coming up now
