the look back at the life of british writes an illustrator of children's books judith come who's died at age 95 she was actually born here in berlin but fled the nazis with a parents in the early 1930 s. a most famous book remains the tiger who came to tea there were many witty and lovingly illustrated books like the whole series on monk the cat was always getting into difficult situations his mole. judith kerr's career as an award winning author started with a bedtime story she invented for her daughter and she didn't broke down and illustrated the tiger who came to teaching which was published in 1968 and has since sold millions of copies worldwide but it was a less whimsical book for young adults that really launched her career when hitler stole pink rabbit is a semi autobiographical book based on her own childhood experiences.
judith kerr was born in berlin in 1923 father alfred kerr was an influential theater critic of the weimar era and her mother julie occur was a composer alfred who was jewish was vocal in his opposition to i don't have. a police man. by heart and nobody he knew. my father was ill in bed with this man ran him up and said. they're trying to take away all passports you must get out immediately. no new he's nathan i've always wondered what happened to him but he saved our lives for anything because my father. geoghan out of bed and caught the next train out of germany. alfred kurtz fled to prague in march of $133.00 judith her older brother michael and their mother also secretly left their home in an affluent suburb of berlin just
before the secret police tried to seize their passports they met up with alfred in switzerland the family later moved to paris and finally settled in london in 1035. per wrote when hitler stole pink rabbit which became the 1st book in a trilogy to try to explain to her children what her own childhood had been like. but it was published as west germany was just starting to come to terms with it's not seek out just in the book ended up being read by generations of german schoolchildren it was published. i think in 74 at a time when the germans. hadn't really. managed to talk to their children about the past that obviously it was very difficult and. this was an easy way because. nothing awful happened to us.
you know they had to leave it to school just part of the kingdom and then they had to write a. song about that because i hated to i thought also simple besides that i thought you should just read them in the matthew st. jude it's current went on to publish more than 30 books including a beloved series based on her family's can. she recently said that her greatest fear was not being able to work and indeed far from slowing down in old age she kept on writing and drawing. at the time of her death she had begun promoting her next book due out in june. what a wonderful lady and working to the end but a new book by the way is cold the cusp of the school rabbit there's also going to be a movie out later this year when it stole pink rabbit. now take a look at this this is a piece created by what's been at
a multimedia company based here in berlin what you are watching is called how 2045 and rob the may tell you more about it that's to watch the founder and creative director of wall street and the man you actually see down saying that because he's here with me in the studio christian no cab better known as being out thank you for joining us the 1st of all briefly tell us how that piece came about is a piece about. man and completely devoted to the environment so we were imagining how could it look like 2045 in accelerated future this is really 45 in the future now you're a computer scientist and the choreographer that is a fascinating and interesting combination but how did that come about i think i started both just playing as a time to learn to code from what i'm thinking too that i was just playing around
at the same time. to germany with the wall came down and that was directly into this very inclusive clue shelf just space. ok let's talk about artificial intelligence because i know that fascinates you now and we've got a recent piece called narcisse which is and i quote artificial intelligence reflecting on its own existence that sounds quite spooky ai looking at itself would you say that yes look at it i think i would say that it isn't a groom is able to describe what it sees in sentences now this is the i grew them that is just made and we thought what could this group them look at what is the thing that you continuously look at but never fully understand so we placed a mother bought into a camera in front of the row inmate this is
a group in this machine of i guess about its own existence what am i but i mean do you think the machine knows it exists can it be vain i mean you've called it narcissus or not says go but nonsense is in english perhaps or from the latin. can it be vain can a machine be bank can it have emotions i don't know if it could so the machine does not have intention and i don't necessarily know what vanity or ness is this but what i do know is that we speak very often just like me right now about i was and this is what he can do to. you really think so. yes ok now my father could imagine as a child meant landing on the moon i couldn't imagine as a child the internet existing we've got a i and technology moving so fast today your very creative so
speculate for me what unimaginable things are soon going to be possible i think being visionary today is more complicated than ever because i think i couldn't really tell next year it's that fast till technology is changing but i do believe that within the next 2030 years we will see an existence of digital existence that we can ask any question and it will respond. to and and it will be right what it is do you think that's good i can tell that's too complex yeah let's have a look at one more piece this is called pig of our visa and now unlike any other pieces on the scene which all had contemporary music on it this has classical opera while we were asked to actually to open the cooktop last and actually show. israelis ations what is played inside in the us so everyone is invited on the
marketplace in front of the place but who says reston i don't see what happens there every road has different. coat for every sentence he says because what he says there is so beautiful and he speaks about the rooms wondering the world and searching for help ok this is fast been fascinating more still stuff thank you meo christian the clan thank you very much for being with us today thank you. to brixton right up in the north of italy and a festival of lights and water it's just the 3rd year that the festival has taken place but it's no longer an insider tip with more and more visitors arriving each year they come to one office from all over the world can do by combining light with water using the cultural treasures of this beautiful old town as a backdrop. no
