12:35 am
the people remove the feet they have to make sure that they don't jump into the audience because it's quite a problem sometimes because the audience is quite close and you don't want to knock people over all something like that so it's very challenging to make sure that you jump straight forward. and that you don't run into people. at midday the girl and her dog take a rest in front of the older who for the famous leaning tower of labor are. in there they don't. there are people and that's the extraordinary thing about rosa locks that's why people love them because they stop being puppets they stop being mary and then and you just look at the music at their face you look at their emotions and their movements you watch and take in the story.

12:41 am
year or so maybe in london on one figure fifty but it would also be fun to do it in other places like in a at is about four to berlin the city is like the sibling second home so they can imagine opening a restaurant there maybe even one that will stick around for a while. it's been over forty one years since the king of rock n roll elvis presley passed away from cardiac arrest but his fans remain loyal to his music and his style on both sides of the atlantic and one place where that loyalty take shape every year is in the german town of bad now haim where elvis was stationed while in the u.s. army or here for the past seventeen years a festival has taken place dedicated to the king your own max reporter hayley rollins and travel there for a blast from the past. the rock n roll era ushered in by
12:42 am
elvis presley and swiftly took the world by storm and still captivates chance today what's behind this everlasting fascination with the keep. growing up in cleveland ohio near the rock n roll hall of fame and i've heard elvis was the king of rock n roll since the time i was a kid but i didn't know he lived in germany and in fact i didn't know he lived in this tiny german town which now hosts the european elvis possible each year drawing fans from all over the world i had to find out what it was all about. in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight at the height of his musical career elvis presley was drafted into the u.s. army and stationed in freetown near frankfurt west germany the nearby town of bad now high and became his home for a year and a half it's an experience the town and his neighbors haven't forgotten see the descendants of those very neighbors and by the rest of the world to their home for the seventeenth european elvis festival but see if they can keep the spirit of elvis and rock'n'roll. the festival is full of the king's spirit everywhere you
12:43 am
turn there are nine hundred fifty s. cars fashion and music with plenty of dancing all inspired by the king of rock n roll. so why are people still loyal to elvis after all these years. pete rock n roll is great you can get dressed up and dance that's fun. oh region all over oh rouche great man great singer great entertainer with us. through the looking for. she makes my day also doesn't really matter what i really like is that his music is so important to the people here that's wonderful because it keeps him alive. most of the musicians are not elvis impersonators but they do count him as a major inspiration like the silver rockets from the netherlands. being. released. and are. winner darlene love who once shared the stage with elvis
12:44 am
himself. oh. yes. it's the second day of the festival and elvis fans are back at it for more fun. this car is a lot like the king's famous pink cadillac he was known to start his car in traffic to sign autographs earning him the name elvis the traffic obstacle. and it's not the only time elvis caused a stir here hotel manager tom must bushes says the king and his entourage were kicked out of this room at the hotel. the main reason was a very light to newspapers and blow them off when it smoked they put it down under the other door and thought it was funny remember the old ladies were on all day and
12:45 am
hognose it's was burning your hotel owner sets somebody but it's enough. fans can stay in the perfectly preserved room for about one hundred fifty euros a night. normally the overs friend is very friendly happy funny from crying yesterday we had a woman that kissed the bad really really. nearly every spot in bad now haim holds memories of elvis visitors can follow in his footsteps on a tour led by a local expert one stop is at his house a goodish class of fourteen where he met the love of his life for senate at a party they later married and had a child together. back in the center of town the party rages on with no sign of slowing down.
12:46 am
so to go to bed now i'm expecting to see a lot of men and i'll receive the hunk of burning love but what i actually found was that the residents here are really proud of elvis and his time here so it makes for the perfect pilgrimage freddie fannie wants to keep that rock'n'roll period that helped him get a lot. every summer numerous styles of sandals come out on the market but one in particular is always a popular choice the greek sandal now it can sometimes be seen on statues representing greek figures like plato and socrates and in athens the shoemaker describes himself as the artist and poet of the greeks and also we asked him to tell us what sets his shoes apart from the rest. all kinds of variations on the greek sandal can be spotted on the streets of athens around the
12:47 am
acropolis. here they've been around for thousands of years already. even the ancient greek philosopher plato was sandals. the leather son of footways now popular all over the wild but how does it feel to wear them in greece i usually don't really where i'm at home because it's too close so over here my feet are much more free. there's something historical about it because you can see them you know the paintings the starters it's all over the militants and when you wear them you really understand why they keep on being where there's some girls are amazing. but many cmos is one of the best known creek sandal makers he studied art in new york but then returns to his homeland his workshop is located in the city center. his family could be making sandals for three generations. that makes me happy to
12:48 am
produce a pair of sandals the same way they were made three thousand years ago i feel like i'm in my element with a fish in water this is not. the man you see most families handcrafted designs have been worn by v.i.p.'s including actress and hathaway. singer barbra streisand actress sarah jessica parker former first lady jackie kennedy onassis and even the beatles but the tennis many seen last doesn't differentiate between the stars tourists and locals it was that they. were democratic. view every individual foot as a challenge that means we create for this but we don't care if it's that of a fee ip or an ordinary person it's all the same swans here in the shadow of the acropolis that didn't matter in the old greece no. does it in a new greece towards it's all the same. many of the statues
12:49 am
around town commemorate famous historical figures who also wore simple sandals. for example the statesman perry cli's in the city hall. and his fellow philosopher socrates in from to be academy of athens. to. which were later adopted by the romans. in the fifteenth and sixteenth century open toed shoes called buskins were all the rage women wore these shoes which featured high corks under the hoop skirts to make them look taller. pantelis many seem continues to find inspiration in the historical figures who wore greek samples his father always carried a sketch pad with him to draw pictures of a foot well on statues.
12:50 am
whenever i look at ancient statues that wear these sandals i'm always impressed that people already wore this kind of shoes three thousand years ago. fell in love and they went to war while wearing the wrong they live their lives in them and these sundials are still around today. greek sandals the perfect summer footwear since the days of antiquity. often young girls dreams of becoming a hollywood actress remain just that dreams but for the ugandan were german actress far also hers became reality has not just conquered hollywood she's also landed a major role in germany's longest running t.v. crime series we caught up with her in berlin to talk about the various roles she's played so far. because somebody has first ever hollywood role to years ago
12:51 am
made her an instant hit with moviegoers she starred in the marvel comic book adaption captain america's civil war but to her acting in the movie wasn't even such a big deal. for me she says so when i went into stand what kind of character i'm supposed to portray the event almost stop acting and just become that character to be that human a comic figure or whatever i just do what i'm expected to do basically it was super easy to soft easy. after starring in captain america for almost was also cast for the black panther superhero flick which is set in the same fantasy world that came out earlier this year once again draw as plays i oh. i should decide enough this the comic the character actually looks a bit like me when i see those pictures i always think yes it makes sense i got that role. in
12:52 am
a role as io floor and serves as king charles bodyguard the king has the ability to transform himself into black panther. into the pit that i'm on you have to. be in the movie black panther equipped with superpowers governs and protects the imaginary african kingdom of wakanda. yet not yet still be a team. out of the game. during the shooting feel wrong as consumers kung fu skills came in quite handy she really enjoyed making the movie. pan's what i liked about being part of black tons that was the opportunity to work alongside so many people of color that was something really special. because when you watch the movie and pay attention to the looks and the research that's gone into the film and talk to people who watched it they'll tell you well i can really sense elements of my. culture in the film. for
12:53 am
the movie they cheer inspiration from a number of countries with the designs and i think lots of people are glad africa's being portrayed in such a positive light. for example that if. born in uganda provence because somebody grew up in the german city of essen and a few years ago she moved to berlin with her husband and kids but not as i like dylan it's noisy but nice. fall study dance singing and acting in the netherlands in two thousand and one when she was in her final year of university she landed her very first movie role after that she went on to major european musicals like west side story cats and aida. in recent years she's also starred in a range of german t.v. productions like the crime series taught on. this for life and she is a dentist for jones has had seven appearances on tight art so far even though she's
12:54 am
played a suspect a witness and a culprit the t.v. show is germany's longest running crime series and remains hugely popular to this day. and age of twenty nineteen she'll be starring as an e.f. schmidt's playing a touch or detective herself it's a role she's always wanted in the production she'll be solving a complicated crime mystery with the help of a new female colleague while dealing with a tense personal relationship because embassies this role is a step towards making german t.v. more diverse. there's still a loss of room for diversity so i look down the line they might cause someone with a veil a black person or an individual with a disability without the need to justify it simply because they're ordinary people who are part of our society. the ones on leave and leave. those consumers successes have boosted her confidence as an actress. she's looking forward to the future. i need to get to play
12:55 am
a tot ought to take to all that ip cost for foreign movies starring in mabo and d.c. productions these things just happened easy so evil that i did with. but now everything is changing rapidly and i'm being offered all these great roles song up for all kinds of movies and playing a variety of different characters. like lending her voice to the lion king musical drama remake of twenty nine to watch out for flawless. grace certainly well and with that we were about another week of euro max now don't forget to friend us on facebook or go to our website to see the reports again as always thanks for tuning in let's see again soon.
