enjoy a traditional christmas meal in london. nobody would argue that costs have changed a lot over the decades but some of those remain classics the most city's 300 s.l. for example made its mark on car design and also influenced fashion and every day design and that is one of the topics of a special exhibition at the famous victoria and albert museum in london. part of. hardly anything has had a greater impact on today's society than the company affecting everything from industry to individual mobility for over 113 is the exhibition comes in london's victoria and albert museum examines the development of the automobile and its influence on our 9. among other things the focus is on 15 milestones of
11:32 pm
automotive history so we wanted to express here is to show in surprising and different ways that the automobile over the course of its history a relatively short history that is 130 years has had so much profound impact on the world around us i mean exhibits include the fens a patent which took to the streets as the 1st car in $886.00 and the ford model t. starting in 1913 henry ford had it built on a moving assembly line and launched the era of world wide mass production the exhibition shows the influence of widely varying design disciplines they looked at ford and what had been achieved there with the model t. so you find a lot of designers who are thinking about what the future of design might be so you know about house design is in particular what we showcased in the exhibition to start to think about standardize ation as a way of producing more good small quickly and what they were really interested in
11:33 pm
mistaking about how basic design could be made cheaper and more available to most peoples in 1922 this hispano suisun model inspired an entirely different trend now one of the most expensive in th cost it's the same $49.00 interview luxury these cars would be put completely bespoke to the to the owner so they would have chosen the colors the upholstery was exactly what type of finish they wanted and not kind of like you know brought back this idea of the fashion in car design i'm sorry if we just move over to this section in good series but the fashion starting with the car design i'm you know companies begin to monoculture products even when i was driving you about truth revealed for example this but rico but what's really interesting is that car designers started so borrowed from the fashion world and the way that you have seasonal changes in order to influence that car design. in 1930. this czechoslovak touch was given one of the very 1st
11:34 pm
streamlined body shapes. and then we see that infiltrates into all the product design on to all the fashions as well so streamlining really becomes this sort of a static of modernity i'm so we can see this. on this flight suit as well which is probably rather practical but really uses the stream of stuff to the show got on the idea of rushing the streamlining aesthetics print to fans and slicing machines as well as the 1st fall off to world war 2 the b.w. beetle fiat's 500 as message in its 3 wheeled bubble color gave western europeans mobility helped lay the foundation for. relatively affordable as they could travel but long distances so people could could use them to go away on holidays where people can then drive to places that they wouldn't have been otherwise been able to visit and kind of you know suddenly
11:35 pm
experience a whole other world. in the 960 s. many cars began to customer. as with this american little ride on. fox the problems caused by congress began mounting congested roads and negative effects on the environment now more and more developers began dreaming of a taxi. that could be again a scene bold freedom again because you don't. get stuck in traffic we can design a better world. anyways to do that but i think we can draw a lot of lessons from the changes in the impact the car has had on the past 130 years of history both for good and for bad to understand how we might think again the future of mobility watch when i'm ability to look like in the future is the low emissions and taxi just a dream on. a real prospect for the global plains of aviation and automobile
11:36 pm
industries are ready carrying out test flights with prototypes of wind vehicles without tweel. but you know what. no christmas celebration and no christmas market here in germany would be complete without a decorated tree and fact the tradition comes from germany and so it is no wonder that every year the largest christmas tree in the world is set up in a german city it is made up of small fur trees and this has been the case for more than 20 years a quirky custom and reporter makes merrill want to do his bit to make it a great success this year. a gigantic christmas tree and i know exactly how it all came together i'm here in dortmund to examine possibly the biggest christmas tradition in the world in fact
11:37 pm
it's the world's biggest christmas tree let's take a look inside so this is the final masterpiece my pistol resistance well i mean actually just one of these thousands of trees is actually mine. a few weeks ago i cut down one of the 1700 trees that make up. every year spruce is from the local forest so used there are plenty of norwegian spruces to choose from so i need a bit of advice. why is the norwegian spruce used for dortmund's mega tree in the. fish for one is cheaper than a traditional norman fur and also this tree nestles itself nicely onto the steel framework endorsement on the struggle. in. the spruces selected for dortmund's christmas tree are between 3 and a half and 5 metres tall for security reasons i can't use a chain saw and have to do it the traditional way the.
11:38 pm
job done this tree will have a big role to play. along with the other spruces it's transported to the building site in the early hours of the morning. not exactly a festive spectacle. the 1st load has already been attached to the 45 metre high structure. each tree is 1st cousin to shape trim and equipped with a clamp for attachment some here have been working on this project for 22 years. the system that does your tree at home looks like. after the 1st 2 years i can barely stand the sight of christmas trees after work. along with the hundreds of trees 1500 working hours and need to complete the structure to get
11:39 pm
a glimpse of how it's done i'm joining the workers at the top. no one here seems scared of heights i'm not all too comfortable and the view from up here is a little nerve wracking. one load of spruces is pulled up among them my very own contribution. no i think it's a hold on this island. after a little untangling i managed to get the tree attached. i can proudly say that my tree is part of the world's biggest christmas tree. a small piece in dortmund's pride and joy the construction company had a total of 4 weeks to build this tree the christmas market surrounding it is only
11:40 pm
set up when construction is finished. then visit his half days to marvel at it and buy presents and delicacies from around $300.00 stalls but the real highlight is the lighting of the tree it's what everyone has been waiting for. i. well it was pretty scary being up there but now it just looks so peaceful and beautiful and after weeks of work thousands of trees coming together and many more thousands of lights the only thing. really left to say is. tough. and you can find more quirky customs like cheese rolling and tossing the caber on
11:41 pm
all sides most people only know the french port city of can lay as somewhere of a pos through on the way to britain but now office a good reason to take a break there for a few hours to us attraction from the french theatre group a lot machine has arrived and of course quite a sensation when it passed through the city streets. of huge dragon is rampaging through the streets of his doing and breathing fire. and it's here to stay so it's out to get a good look at its new lair and the people who live there. but they need to be on the lookout for this dragons a tricky one. to track and it's great to see some personnel so i don't want to shout with my son from the dragon and wet from the rain in years but it's all right that very very handsome outstanding tremendous.
11:42 pm
and we've done a terrific all the decor in the design absolutely to. see. the $72.00 ton dragon is 10 meters tall in 25 meters long after the show it will be on display in calais starting in mid december it will be making its rounds of the french port every 20 minutes and carrying up to 60 brave souls on its back. it was built by the french theater group. which specializes in creatures like this one. it's a good show it's always full of surprises so the construction was very intense. we had to work hard. the dragons on the move and in the streets even in fairly different. weather conditions to the wind is 100 kilometers per hour or carrying on the people are with us it's exactly what this use is diminishing. the dragon was built of iron and wood a few months earlier in the city of norm in western france the project took some 2
11:43 pm
years from the 1st sketches to the finished track and. it was designed by francoise. the founder of the machine some 80 people worked together to bring the dragon to life metal workers carpenters artists and programmers. and 1st i made a sketch sculpture used it to complete this wooden model so simply served as the prototype for the dragon of calais. then i had to be rendered digitally. to dragon skin is made up of about $200.00 individually crafted wooden components. rule. blue is a bit more vivid than this one. the. the symbol of the artistic ensemble is a giant elephant it regularly takes a stroll around the machines exhibition grounds and.
11:44 pm
elephant and other mobile creatures created over the past 20 years can be seen and experienced their. move or do some every new design is adapted to a given situation yeah i do the history of a town or a certain location. i have the good fortune of the place i'm designing a new machine for inspires me. back in color it takes a crew of 17 people to execute and synchronize the dragon's movements. if he does it if you stay in line would. look out. farther never really get it but the
11:45 pm
majority of those the jars are perfect. it's a pilot sits inside the head and controls the heads movements and going to dragons facial expressions. are 2 more people who control the tongue is their eyes and ears back as pierre is responsible for special effects like the water fire and steam even doesn't there's another for the wings and one or the tail there with you there's one person per talon one who drives the vehicle and one in charge of overall coordination for every minute that you buy don't you call them up we can start. with night falls the dragon really comes into his own. and the next morning some people may not be quite sure if what they solve really happened or if it was all just a dream with. hardly any artist could handle the light and shadow as muscle fully
11:46 pm
as they are numerous celebrations to mock the 350th anniversary of his death throughout the netherlands the country where he lived and work we visited our neighbors to find out more about this famous. artist rembrandt harman's on fun rhine is a national hero in the netherlands using just a few color pigments made his canvases shine like almost nobody before him. now 350 years after his death his fame lives on. his most famous painting the night watch hangs in amsterdam's rights museum and is now undergoing restoration. a laser scan the painting and analyze the chemical elements and the layers of paint. but does that tell us anything about rembrandt's
11:47 pm
genius. to slow down so both the announcers to paint such a huge picture has to sketch the composition 1st out some other example of the 1st to position the end science flag on the left different to its ideal place to kind of indian caught up on the famous to go he goes as ink on. he developed this picture successively as he was painting it and this way exciting to see this development process because and it can you find out how rembrandt thought and which decisions he made and that's what i can cite on have. lied and rembrandts hometown lies about 40 kilometers south of amsterdam. he was born here in 1606 his parents' house no longer stands. his father's mill as a replica. but the latin school young rembrandt attended still exists. in just around the corner so does the studio where he learned to paint.
11:48 pm
a playful video tells the story of his life 17th century students of painting had to learn several genres such as landscape and history painting and portraits. even as a boy rembrandt made portraits of himself he may have been honing his particular talent capturing emotions. leiden was a liberal university town had achieved prosperity through weaving and trading and cloth many artists lived here. i think he must've been very driven a very driven personality intellectual personality he wanted to become famous so he was very ambitious and. and nothing could stand in his way to become the most famous painter i think it was already in his must have been in his head when he was a small boy. at 25 he moved to amsterdam at the time a flourishing center of trade citizens used their newfound wealth to commission
11:49 pm
portraits of themselves. branch was a huge demand. believed in this house for nearly 20 years today around 280000 visitors past that museum annually. this is actually the area where the family lived in a family life took place and this is also an area of success of happiness but also a great sorrow for example we have the box bed here where the family would sleep and this is also the area where remnants 1st died. so this is rembrandt studio this is actually the place where many of his masterpieces were in may and here we see a lovely corner where we can see how he worked with light and here he has a cloth hanging and this cloth softens the light so it filters the light coming in
11:50 pm
. rembrandt's genius extended to printmaking as well he generally made his actions were so using the method demonstrated to visitors of the rembrandt house museum heard good money could be made from print series in those days even so for the end of his life rembrandt was destitute you lived in a grand style and he also did not always pay his debts so part in part this collection was a part of his bankruptcy and had to be sold during his lifetime. his house and possessions were also sold off he moved to a foreign neighborhood and continued painting. he lived for art as are shown by the masterpieces in. amsterdam's rights museum fascinate generations of visitors. christmas unites people all over the world but each country has its own traditions
11:51 pm
