action was hiking. 50 years ago the apollo 11 spacecraft was on its way to the moon when the astronauts landed and live pictures were beamed into our living rooms it altered off a section of the moon and indeed outer space and in films the whole perception of the moon changed as well is some examples of the moon on film starting with real pictures of nasa's achievement after a century ago. it was perhaps the greatest human adventure of all time and shown live on television. a new documentary apollo 11 tells the story of the 1st manned moon landing it features digitally restored footage goodness archive as well as rediscovered film reels that had never been seen before you have to kind of whittle down one of the key moments or the moments of humanity that happened what were the things that stood out what really got me was the emotion on their faces

you could see the way of what they were about to do. that the world of cinema was fascinated with the moon long before people landed their. french director many years to realistic a trip to the moon from 1902 is thought to be the 1st feature film ever made and certainly the 1st science fiction movie. was a performer and to me is a trip to the moon combines his flair for the theater and magic with the potential of the new medium of film and both of crazy was unlike scientists land on the moon to find a magical place filled with unknown danger is where dreams could become reality. 25 years later german director fritz long portrayed a journey to the dark side of the moon with his woman in the moon in it a troupe of humans leave earth looking for gold which they for. find here the moon

is seen as a place of escape from earth's problems as well as a place of promise in its own right of course since the lunar mission film portrayals of the moon have become more realistic even now they reveal as much about our own fears and desires as they did a century ago. my colleague melissa holroyd is over the moon about this topic. it's always fascinated us there hasn't again it's best laid of us through film for over a century the moon is also very symbolic isn't it represents time because it's constantly changing it represents birth and breed birth it also represents the dark place within ourselves that we go when we need to regenerate and start again but since the moon landing the way perceived in movies has become much more realistic gets become a lot more real estate fish or has that when i think about 1st man the 2080 mm film
10:48 am
that is a very realistic film it's a very visceral film ryan gosling plays neil armstrong and he's in a very very dark place is surrounded by death his own daughter dies of a brain tumour his trip to the moon is something that he has to do he's not doing it to be a hero so he of the moon is shown as a dark lonely place words ok to just be it's also a place of new beginnings we see armstrong all alone dropping his dead daughter's bracelet into a crater and then he returns from death so to speak back to life on earth he's transformed but not for the better in another film but has the moon as a place of transformation is the extraordinary film by duncan jones called it's called simply it's called moon yes it's a great film and it's easy to watch you can just watch it on on you tube i think here we have 7 brockwell playing a moon work. he's on
10:49 am
a 3 year long mining mission on the moon and he really is on the dock side of the moon it's a very moving film about free will and rebirth and hard. and unlike the some ready the moon is perceived as mysterious it can affect all sleep patterns and is the stuff of legends which is kind of great for movie plots yeah its own is this sort of guide in this influence and in some movie plots take that a step. so we have like things that the cold horror a classic and the american way of wolf in london from 1981 this film blends the macabre with a lot of humor it has a modern take on the classic werewolf legend of the 2 u.s. backpackers getting into a lot of trouble ok melissa you could go from how the. american werewolf would love the good as always thank you.

now we're going to get comfortable with a great designer catarina come from me that's what she calls a collection of everyday household objects which she can so that they have no use at all i know that sounds strange doesn't it she's actually an architect with a wicked sense of humor does this in her spare time. how is anyone supposed to water flowers with this can. or sweep with this broom. helping you lift the pot off the stove with both handles on one side or eat with this fork. cutting the company renders everyday objects on usable also course me my intention is to make people laugh but i think there is a 2nd level. like us not to take these things all around us for granted they were designed according to certain rules and only when you break these rules of the do you learn to appreciate these objects again so we should always think beyond our

own limits. i love but above the world all of us can but often. catarina company works as an architect in athens whenever she has the time she works on her design project the uncomfortable collection is now grown to over 30 objects some of them have been used in an advertising campaign off the wall concepts have gone by or on the internet. i'm going to come upon a year's working on more uncomfortable design objects he or she takes the ergonomics out of her tooth brush. because i think that it's must have appeared became a hyper what's most important is to pick a suitable object it has to be something that's easy to use and that we take for granted because we see it every day. this will be then i think about how i use this object. and i sabotage one aspect of this use you don't i come up with several

different ways to do that and the one that makes me laugh the most while i'm sketching it out is the one that i develop the more obscure biazon make him laugh in the paper what i'll. come across and he also gives workshops to teach others how to. design unusable things she delights in the many useless ideas with the participants. got to be in a company has exhibitor designs all around europe the workshops are also small exhibitions of her uncomfortable collection. this project the uncomfortable came at a time that was very hard for me or uncomfortable i wanted to become a designer but with the economic crisis in greece that wasn't easy so i decided to become an uncomfortable designer and this project was an expression of my situation . for examination of the uncomfortable clothes our. country

with that special trousers little for the knee oh boy please. there they are a little thing. the germans love to walk of course but walking on those walking is long talks about see a goggle sunday stroll has long been an established feature in the lives of many german families but a step up from this is or hiking the difference isn't necessarily about grade you know strenuousness it's the band on involved planning a route and equipment. hiking is the most popular outdoor activity in germany whether it's a longer journey with stopovers and hiking huts or a quick day trip at the weekend young and old in any season they just love it. i fell for it does the modest hips get arms off and one didn't know my was if you didn't get this money i should also. mention. noticed bush

i'm trying to speak to you q not someone as. soon hot. on pushed on off election to under law to. have the germans been roaming the hills since time immemorial not quite back in the day hiking was for religious pilgrims tradesmen scholars and vagabonds. the german mountains and forests were seen as uninviting dangerous and it wasn't until the 1800s that german nature got itself some good publicity courtesy of the remand poets and painters joining forces to pick up the great outdoors people started to realise they could walk for pleasure the arrival of the railway meant that even the city dwellers had easy access to the countryside. and then the germans did what the germans do best they go organized they formed hiking associations pods and even set up the 1st of a youth hostels. sadly even the wholesome pursuit of hiking couldn't escape the

shadow of national socialism the nazis saw hiking as an elitist selfish hobby and they funneled use hiking members into the hitler youth. but in the price of oil is a renew connection to nature became part of the human process for many germans today hiking is more popular than ever and it's big business the germans spend billions of euros every year on hiking trips and fancy equipment. there's certainly plenty to keep them occupied in germany some 300000 kilometers of signposted hiking routes along forest trails alpine tracks wind valleys and coastal. but the germans are no longer just hiking at home one for one and all of their hiking habits while holidaying abroad as well wherever they off there's another vital element to a german hike it's so important it's got its own but i know them all stopping off for refreshment along the way maybe it's not so some cake or just a cold beer to keep your eye on if you have a lot. if
