long and cold winter is to embrace the elements and enjoy some seasonal and to time and a great example is holiday on ice one of the world's most famous ice shows twenty eighteen marks an important milestone for the touring company they've now been going for the seventy five years of course a lot has changed since the show's humble beginnings in the u.s. state of ohio in the 1940's my colleague meghan lee took a look at the latest installment cold atlantis. this is one of the world's longest running shows holiday on ice now entering its seventy fifth year it's an acrobatic adventure of sorts some thirty five skaters take to the ice in a program that changes every year one of the principle stars of the show is twenty five year old mighty long graf he's already had a long and successful skating career and this is yet another feather in his cap
11:39 pm
other than i am now it's just the world's largest ice show you can hear the audience tonight right off to the number of people and that keeps you motivated to go out to get. this year's story centered around the legend of atlantis monte plays one of its richest inhabitants a man who seduces dozens of women before atlantis sinks underwater. legend has it the ancient utah big city suddenly disappeared due to the god's anger at the population to greet. the costume story ideas and choreography have come a long way in seventy five years holiday on ice began in one thousand forty three in the united states over the years it has grown as a production introducing new characters and attracting many stars its audience has also grown steady over the years the show signature opulence has remained
11:40 pm
consistent throughout. even after seventy five years holiday on ice still remains one of the most successful shows of its kind thanks in no small part to the theatrical performances its creative directors are always on the lookout for the most modern concepts to keep the audiences in awe . i'm a big fan of game of thrones and i love the opulence and the beauty and the slight feel of of history but i wanted to give it a modern edge so if if we thought atlantis was alive now. artois this is how i would i would think it would look holiday and i says chalked up a number of records it's the most visited i show in the world with over three hundred twenty nine million audience members it's also appeared in the guinness
11:41 pm
book of world records five times. skaters who want to participate must have experience like julie sherry from switzerland another principal skater in the show up till two years ago she was competing on an international level. by the invade to be bad but the multiplication is you feel more into pressure on the atmosphere is tense. now i notice that the show is how we can all enjoy it because we have put a show together all of this can be socially orientated so this larry family and we show that to the outside weld and be no auslan. aside from the skating acrobatics n.p.r. trickle performances the costumes also play a central role created by international designer michael sharpe they were a major endeavor with many a lot just sticks. of the night of
11:42 pm
a different world so we thought. so how it once was in the trees bright pure moment and then when you have the place sinking i'm going to pull out of the water it's a lot more surreal a video inspired. because it's essentially a sports everything has to be super flexible and really do your goal durable enough to last at least six months many of the skaters have no less than seven costume changes per show and as the show progresses so does the opulence of each outfit. great costumes very impressive and. lovingly designed great music yes it's great fun it's fantastic i'm upset me thrilled i didn't it was beautiful inside me i liked it when the fire came spouting out.
11:43 pm
how they are nice where seventy five years of history behind it the extravaganza is still as popular as ever. now to an artist who combines two of life's greatest joys art and food and it's not healthy ingredients that take her fancy. uses chocolate as a pan and margarine to mold her sculptures so apart from looking good some of a piece is probably quite nice to what happens when she suddenly fancies a snack. sculpture made from marjorie created and modeled by artist sun you're on a poison. and what other moms feel but my mother always baked
11:44 pm
a lot so it was a normal material for me dough and margarine and it's easy to shape and to make sculptures with. plastic this is a special margarine it's in the spirit keeps its shape well and it's very high lastic a bit like a modeling clay lasts business almost like touching a living thing. the bennies. he's got just also made for marjorie and. they're part of a performance held at the braunschweig university of out west on your outweighs it was a lecture and. told us to us here something is destroyed when we eat them edible things are also destroyed we consume something and it's gone up. here it's a sculpture i just made that's being destroyed when it loses half of its shape through the impact but i think that's incredibly beautiful. the artist has won many accolades for her work including her drawings which revolve around the theme of
11:45 pm
cooking this one shows how to bake rye bread from sourdough. that's implicit mystery was in the end i'm interested in how things intermingle and how things are created and you can show that nicely in a drawing those individual stamps and then use it in a recipe. just looking at her drawings is enough to make your mouth water and leave you longing to share a meal with good friends. this is tiresome this is the guy we've lost the spirit of sharing on so i guess that's where i'm coming from. you set the table invite guests and share something. that's got a bit lost with old cuisine where everyone has his own plate and must make do with what's on it it's so restricting. a chocolate both another installations not in that stuff mart the specialty ought to be allowed to depict this kind of
11:46 pm
decadence i have to use a lot of chocolate to show that i mean a lot of charm but it's an overabundance i work with that and sometimes it can be wasteful but there's also positive wastefulness and for me using this much chocolate is positively wasteful and i simply wanted to see it. as it doesn't use that much chocolate while working in her own kitchen yet it remains a sweet temptation. markoff i miss i love milk chocolate although i discipline myself while i'm working otherwise you just end up nibbling presents nashton what marcy pans another sweet treat she's pressed it into a silicon mold to form ahead its forms that moment i'm happy when the head emerges and it's all shiny when it's been well pressed then the omen the oil settles around the edges and it looks like it's been freshly lacquered i really like that.

music is coming from the so-called citizens tower. it's home to the world's largest freestanding organ locals call it the hero's organ each day the song the good comrade is played to honor all those who have fallen in wars throughout the world. the organ pipes are located at the top of the tower but the organist sits down below it's not an easy job since you can never practice without thousands of people listening in. so in the afternoon belongs to the heroes but the night. belongs to an entirely different kind of character. he's armed with a lantern and a woman called a how bird. he's stein's nightwatchman household level
11:50 pm
these days the night watchman is a tourist attraction but he used to serve an important function he'd warn the population if a fire broke out and keep an eye open for thieves not a job for the faint hearted. of the an off. night watchmen were pretty special people and they weren't much loved by the townspeople because they were always on the go after dark. in the towns ordinary citizens were rather scared of the dark fact that there were no street lights no lanterns it was really dark quiet time gray so the night watchman was the only one who really dead to go out at night. that is apart from the people who wanted to stay out drinking. people still like to do that here in the limo hope. it's the coin to street in kuta but also it's most infamous. is also the hour

for example has been around for six hundred years or so and then there's a guest house there's also alcohol the little was known for its good beer back then today it's more of a wine bar. of course there were people who drank a lot and got into fights but in some towns the night watchman was more of a night police missed out and he kept the peace and order is sold. by night is quite a sight during the winter season visitors can accompany the night watchman on his rounds at least once a week it's a chance to visit some of the towns lesser known corners as well as here scary stories and interesting anecdotes and see could shine from a completely different perspective. the saying goes you can't teach an old dog new tricks but it turns out that all four legged friends are
