6:32 am
this is the place where i'm going to spend the night i don't know if i can handle this. i will spend the night hanging off a rock cliff and the adventure begins with a hike i'm on my way to the mountain in the northern part of austria with my guide mark was pulling to. the summit 1500 meters above sea level. hopefully you're ready and i'm scared really scared is fine ok. first i practice after sailing down the steep cliff i need to master this so i can get down safely to my part of legislators. to . marcos also shows me how to get back up again of course. looks really easy but expand my. mom
6:33 am

6:35 am
to go. but it looks so easy when you was setting it up and sitting in. ok. city here myself. completely different story. as the sun goes down temperatures soon begin to drop time to get some shots. so i'm staying in the harness the whole night and i'm still attached to this rope which is fixed up there so even. if the pot on the edge would flip over our come for dollars ok so everything's safe and if i may be get scared in the
6:36 am
night. i brought your little companion and he's of course. secured as well so good night. it's not only my 1st night on a rock face it's also my 1st time ever sleeping under the open sky. good morning. time to wake up. all. morning morning how you doing ah i'm ok this made. my closest brought some coffee to sipping some hot brew and taking in these stunning view what
6:37 am
a glorious start to the day. yes so this was really one of the most exciting nights i ever had in my life i mean i did sleep well i wasn't scared at all during the night of course it's not that comfortable but seeing the stars in the night and waking up with this view i mean it's priceless. as unbelievable the use of gold leaf in paintings decorative arts and architecture dates back thousands of years but it's becoming increasingly harder to find handy in gold leaf in today's day and age and that's because producing it this way is a fading craft for example in venice in the year 7800. there were 300 so-called gold beater's today however there was only one family dedicated to this ancient tradition there we visited the mario bear lauro studio to see how they are keeping
6:38 am
their gold leaf business alive. much of what litters here is indeed gold for centuries venice has flaunted its wealth with this precious metal. now very few craftsman's chops are left that work gold by hand. in the many gaps of family runs one of the world's last gold beating shops under the name madea better come back the lot of. you don't really need that much strength for this work . it's all a question of technique your technique actually helps you work with less effort. that's important because depending on how thin the gold is supposed to end up it will take anywhere from 50 minutes to 2 and a half hours to hammer it out. to the purest
6:39 am
$24.00 carat gold is noted at over $1000.00 degrees celsius and cast as a small bar which by itself has a value of about $6000.00 euros. still a little gold bar is about 120 grams depending on the thickness required of the gold leaf we can make up 10026000 pieces from a thing you know for you. first the gold is passed through a rolling mill several times pressing it thinner each time it's rolled into a long ribbing heated over and over and put through the mill again. restore to go wood if the colors nice of yellow you know the gold is pure. just give the hue tends towards a reddish you know it's an alloy no. it might contain silver or
6:40 am
a little copper if you see that. when the gold ribbon in several metres long it's cut into lengths folded and cut again into little squares saddam men to god so these between sheets of parchment to separate them during the beating. a packet consists of 331st they're beaten with the machine and then quartered once more and then there worked with a hammer. the final step is the hammering this is how gold leaf was made in venice a 1000 years ago at that time there were no machines to help with the heavy work. kristallnacht there's a hammer ways to kilos almost nothing this one weighs 4 kilos so it's a bit heavier but for me that's nothing at that age kilos well this one's pretty
6:41 am
heavy for the hammering produces thousands of these gossamer leaves a single leaf weighs barely as much as a hair eleonora many god so hopes this age old craft may be passed on to the next generation. invisible it's a great responsibility because this is very special work is in danger of dying out and that's not a nice thought that this could one day just be forgotten. for says. park restore and gilder a lease up at the mouth song uses a great deal of madia better thought but the gold leaf in her workshop. it takes a steady hand and the right conditions to work with this delicate material. even a gentle breeze could ruin everything. chmod that the fitting difference between industrially produced and hand made gold leaf is the normans the
6:42 am
industrial gold leaf is much thinner and more fragile so it's really hard to do good work with. the leaf tears easily and in the end it just doesn't look as good as the hand made gold leaf. the angel atop st mark's company is among the works restored using gold leaf from audio better. thanks to an age old handicraft the queen of the adriatic shines on. british composer and musician cosmo sheldrake is a instrumentalist who uses nature as his inspiration well the chirp of a bird for example can serve as the source for his musical creations now it's hard to put sheldrake's music into one category but we accompanied him on location to
6:43 am
see how he captures sounds for his musical collages. british musician kosmos sheldrake feels a deep connection with nature and the songs he composes are inspired by the world around him he works from a small solar powered studio deep in a forest in southern england. learn to play the piano at age 4 today he plays over 30 different instruments his 2nd album wake up calls features a range of bird samples. how short the sounds are and arrange them in a sampler so i can check it back different elements of what i've recorded in and then start to kind of color those sounds together and build the enter piece of music. whenever he can the 30 year old explores ready his lush the roundings ready ready hunting for sound to sample.
6:44 am
'd nature to me i guess just means a celebration of life is just. one of the songs i write is life has a passion for living and i think it's just. it's true isn't it just being a natural place you just get that sense of just life bursting forth from becoming constantly. it's very hard to know what inspires. inspires me it just seems to arrive sometimes on the wind maybe. so i'm recording the sound of the wind in the gorse bush it's quite chaotic kind of howling. gusty sound and i'm making a piece of the moment it involves quite low winds. you can tell so many stories and through a piece of music or through sounds that would take you know books to explain. because no music is like poetry.
6:45 am
he's played shows in many different corners of the world and he has a soft spot for performing in nature. i mean i love playing outside. i for. one of my favorite things that seem to play to places of the people i think it's just as important to perform to in places and to places but often i'll go to a place i record sounds from that place make a piece of music and then take it back to the place and perform it back in the place i think places can listen to music i i'd like to think they could and i certainly believe that the creatures in the place is going to be.
6:46 am
i'm seeing. a change right june june with. 5 or 5 fry in. wearing the cosmos music is an ode to the beauty of our natural environment which like his music never ceases to amaze. return our attention now to berlin which is a top address for international cuisine but anyone who comes here would be missing out if they didn't try the famous or the infamous corrie forest now you may just think it's a simple hotdog with a special spicy catch up but it is a much more complicated than that for lately corey verse is prepared and served in different ways which determine the quality and taste we take a closer look now at the production of curry burst in and around berlin and what
6:47 am
makes it so special. this isn't working man's food it's not trendy food it's for everyone it's food for the homeless and the president alike of the don't think. there may be life without curry worst but in our case it wouldn't have much meaning. for me to read the berlin curry worst is the best way in the world to pig out that . beat will eat curry worst at any time of the day or night we open at 8 am and close at 5 am we're open 21 hours
6:48 am
a day. i am less of vienna bitch i managed curry 36 and quite spare districts back to. the limbs original curry worst was only made of pork now there are many other variations but we only sell curry worst made of pork or beacon curry worst as an alternative because we will lose it. for our current worst we only use genuine humble and apple fed pigs from our own farm i know. i am stefan cause i'm head of production at the caught up oh farm but you. don't mind we use pork belly shoulder and bacon and then add water in the form of ice for cooling. then of course comes the spices salt pepper and not make to give it a little personal touch mission a little bit up to. next comes the felling the curry worst is stuffed into an intestinal skin then it's cooked in
6:49 am
a steamer. the berlin classic is a shop on tao on a palette meaning the curry worst has no skins want to doll. somebody to the al east germany we grew up eating curry worst without skin and we've stuck with that variation to this day. my name is dagmar konopka we're standing here in front of our business because take away us and i'm the 3rd generation to run it here. it's just so you see my grandparents and parents introduce the curry worst without skin to east berlin in 1960. invest based berlin r.t. had curry worst with skin back then and my grandpa was always interested in new products
6:50 am
so he decided to introduce curry worse to east berlin intestines were in short supply back then so we had to make do without and today we're known in famous for just that. i like her worst with or without skin curry worst with skin should be nice and crispy but not too dry curry worst without skin needs to be very juicy but fried golden brown on the outside. of. the recipe for our sauce is a secret we won't tell it to anyone it's all stored in our heads. the secret to our sauce to be honest there's no secret it's just a catch up made 87 percent tomatoes a little sugar a little bit of a little spice and if that's it. you. live in before every curry worst shop tries to be unique and i and promotes its own
6:51 am
sauce in the end it comes down to the vendors personal. taste. of that some at mango pulp or apple sauce or was this your sauce or soy sauce it doesn't matter as long as the guests like it. might or might not but i think it's important not to skimp on the sauce but we also don't want to drown the sausage and overpower it states that it's much to go. with the food it's not like there's one typical berlin curry worst without the vendors are making each of us sells what works best for us to help local everything go through. burning wood for a fire is common practice however burning wood for building seems like
6:52 am
a contradiction in terms but now an ancient japanese method of charring wood is catching on in europe it's called shoes so we buy and it means refining by fire by burning the surface the structure of the wood changes making it fire resistant now one dutch company specializes in this method and we were on hand to find out war. the idea here is not to burn the wood but to treat it following a traditional japanese method of vine and ties 3 boards together to form a shaft he then sets them up right over a flame by that you get something like a chimney fire and the interesting part of it is to face it there's a very little oxygen. which is not really but it's just charred the point is to preserve the wood fiber while alemany being the nutrients that attract berman and fungus that makes the wood more resilient and durable the japanese discovered
6:53 am
this effect a long ago after a number of towns suffered fires when that was 3050 fires they they found out that the houses which have been burned before which at this kind of clearing didn't burn that easily off the. feet of vine and has refined the technique for building houses facades and furniture. on an old farm about 70 kilometers southwest of amsterdam his team experiments with different kinds of wood burning methods. in 2012 peter vine ins company was among the 1st to make the technique known outside of japan. now several others offer similar products each with their own processes which they often keep strictly secret. we're very careful with it because it's a very strict procedure in which for every kind of wood we need a different kind of temperature different kind of folks a germ speed etc. that it took time to get so far but i think we can really make the best we can. the burning process makes the wood
6:54 am
a long lasting and low maintenance building material it can stand at least 50 years without needing any further treatment and black is a very trendy color in architecture interior designers are using more and more. for instance very tumbling gave the encore. by simone this restaurant and the hague its very own distinctive style with charred wood chose this material because. as you can see with strike lights reflect gets more deft and there's also gold. even the trains used to serve the food are made with charred wood. heat of violence company employs designers carpenters and wood specialists right to find new ways to use the material besides merely as decorative paneling. in the future we would like to explore making the whole furniture i fink it's
6:55 am
unique look that you won't gets any other way peter vine and uses a blowtorch to test the fire resistance of the wood in the beginning it was the primary tool and his can't i just did it for myself to make my own house and off the bits of the developments came so i started with the blowtorch and i did with a small ovum and now i found both really that it's it's not a trick with local it's a coffin ship not something with a diamond which takes concentration and i think that's that's the most beautiful thing that has a. sort of that this event it's i can imagine is that we can produce as long as it's black. or be a divine and whether interior or exteriors architecture black it's very beautiful indeed. and with that we wrap up another show but be sure to follow us on social media or check out our website for this week's show if you enter you could become

a heart palpitations and these are just some of the problems which are on the rise right now. what does the coronavirus do to us to our relationships with family friends and strangers how does it affect our confidence in ourselves and in the world. a team of psychologists at marburg university in germany has been gathering the public's answers to those questions in an online survey. the surveys findings offer a broad picture of the myriad effects that the coronavirus pandemic has had on our mental health model to shrink is an educational psychologist. so what do people need to feel good in theory the feeling of being in control of their lives being independent and belonging to a social group. think that it is when it comes to these 3 basic needs we found that our sense of autonomy has suffered our need to be in charge of our own lives has been very badly impaired we know from investigating these 3 needs that the

situation can also lead to psychological problems they can even manifest themselves in psychological disorders like depression anxiety and the like. and yet people experience the restrictions in very different ways just how different personality types get through the crisis is the focus of equipment as work one finding is that introverted and withdrawn people are suffering due to the current coronavirus restrictions those restrictions can magnify a person's sense of isolation but there's a more surprising result in miller's work that. people who are most sociable extroverted and more optimistic tend to go through life positively they're experiencing a noticeable increase in bad moods suffering very much from the situation. we think it's caused by the restrictive measures which obviously lead to fewer social contacts. so the crisis even weighs down on those who otherwise go through life in

a sociable and positive manner one serious problem in the pandemic is the sudden uncertainty when people can stick to things they planned anxiety disorder specialist christiane upon a 5 day looks at how we try to reassert control through behaviors like panic buying hoarding excessive hygiene and pathological obsessions with the symptoms of the illness is that if it's relatively important to keep an eye on your body the question is to what degree we've observed that if parents raise their children to be obsessive about even relatively harmless physical symptoms like a runny nose or minor heart palpitations. those children have a higher risk of developing disorders and they could be uncertainty is also promoting a relapse into old gender role behaviors women are once again managing the household and family while the men are focusing more on earning a living. and what are the effects of the economic shift to home office.

organisational psychologist 10 include wants to know how working from home affects our social identity our perception of ourselves as group members. that includes professional contacts. working from home over the long term could lead to people's sense of belonging the weekend entry so could be ammunition. so forth like that for standard things that used to be a given for a team their identity are suddenly no longer there. it could be things as mundane as gathering around the coffee machine. and if a company can't keep social identities alive in the way they've always existed they can have a negative effect on the health of its employees if it doesn't about to the limit of what. those who have lost their jobs as a result of the crisis are in a much worse position they experience less access to social activities shelter and

healthy food all of which can contribute to psychological disorders and the effect it can no longer count on society understanding their plight the mob org team hopes they're focused therapies will give patients to tools they need to deal with the cataclysmic changes happening in their lives. do you think he advice how we can keep mentally stable in such difficult times. yeah 1st of all i think it's important that we acknowledge that these are difficult times for us and that we tend to it's a kind of normal reaction for everybody to be even more nervous more euro taber if a little bit more difficult than usual so that's important for us to acknowledge that and the other strategy which could be paper is to. to reduce the times when you get with the cold corporate pandemic.
7:38 am
because since 3 tend to be irritable somehow going to be due to very long with the issues around and endemic then it makes it even more nervous what should we do if we feel living in the because of the social distancing measures. i think it's important to recognise that there's too many options how we can stay in contact with others like on the on sky and on the all the digital media which is around and also to plan more social context for example if we. if you have a day where we have to be in a home office or something if it makes sense that it's important for us to organize a kind of social context maybe even especially for you if you live alone then to all be nice in advance that you make a phone call in the afternoon or that when you see someone on skype or see someone you know in a cafe it's. the opposite situation when big families it's
7:39 am
a small apartment and it's also crowded and you don't have any space for yourself so how can you do within it that's helpful to stick to certain routine so even if children are not going to school or something like that then to start the day kind of together so even to get up to have breakfast together those kind of things to have a daily routine even if there is no external stimulus for that and also to plan on things which everyone can do on on his or her own since that's what we are used to to have times doing they have a very we do something on all institutes to stick to that. let's broaden of you a bit right now we focused just on germany and europe but what's the situation world why from a psychiatric mind if you i mean it's very preliminary data we have now but it
7:40 am
looks like that the actual symptoms in in the german population from small studies it's this stage it looks a bit like people in germany tend to have less symptoms then people in the us saw in china and it's interesting to speculate how that could happen and maybe it has to do with the strategy the politics came up with that they tend to focus on the individual and that's stated their decision how they deal with the rules and that they may. no strict laws which. everybody doing the same because we know when the stress around it with its head for. stress if it is still our own decision what we are doing when young people get infected with the coronavirus the disease does not seem to progress so badly where
7:41 am
is the virus hits patients with preconditions or other people hard in any case a coronavirus is not to be under-estimated it cannot only lead to severe respiratory problems it can also damage the kidneys and the brain among convalescent persons. holding up clients not came down with covert 19 today she still suffering the consequences to her health. kind of wish i got really sick 3 months after catching the coronavirus my hair started falling out really badly i was like a christmas tree losing its needles i grabbed my hair and it came out in bushels there were areas where i was totally bowled it's not as bad as it was then but it still folds out in the head it does grow back is there now wiring and a different color. in march she was rushed to the hospital unable to breathe she made a video journal of her on this for the magazine contrast. on
7:42 am
not being able to breathe has an effect on your mind my condition was miserable i couldn't inhale my whole body rebelled my pulse skyrocketed i wanted to breathe i inhaled and tried to get 10 but i couldn't breathe and i loved this company. even after leaving the hospital her breathing problems continued after very much physical exertion she needed to take breaks and catch her breath. another dramatic consequence that carly appliance i noticed much later was the chief. had difficulty speaking. she found it hard to turn her thoughts into words. that's what i imagined the sentence in my head but a completely different one came out my nouns got mixed up for a whole day i replaced every now in my head with the word random but. the central nervous system seems to be more affected than medical experts 1st realized patients
7:43 am
who have recovered from cope with 1000 have reported exhaustion dizzy spells and problems formulating words. researchers are now trying to determine what the long term effects of the infection are they already have a good idea to do. so among the most common symptoms are various disorders in 92 percent of the cases they usually disappear within $4.00 to $5.00 weeks but we don't know about the remaining 10 percent will the disorders become permanent we know that some patients suffer from strokes even patients who are younger and have no history of blood vessel risk factors. dementia could be another neurological long term effect christiane cummings you know still has problems remembering a possible effect of the virus he doesn't belong to a high risk group and yet the fireman was put in an artificial coma for 17 days 3
7:44 am
months later his perception is still strongly affected. benefited if i have to deal with a lot of things all at once getting those tossed on the still very difficult for me i have to admit. neurologist peter bell that says that a 3rd of 1000 patients admitted to the intensive care unit have diffuse brain damage that won't improve in the short term. this is typically manifested by the fact that patients have memory problems as well as difficulties paying attention and concentrating they could also start getting confused they show signs of perceiving things wrong or they have a loser nations so it's often accompanied by anxiety and restlessness and here. they also determine that the kidney is the 2nd most affected organ. the. baby when mathias clients ago caught the corona virus his kidneys failed he was put in an artificially induced coma for
7:45 am
a month. to use the ship's name and. i had such a moment of happiness i woke up to a forest of juice all around me were 8 people who said i should open my eyes i started crying at that point from then on top is gone and. the code requires can do lasting damage to the kidneys like causing a kidney infection a part of the organ dies in that case and becomes a dead scar tissue. it was doesn't see reversible a kidney can compensate somewhat so you don't notice it immediately but you only have so much kidney and all of a sudden half of it is scar tissue that has a lasting effect because the scar tissue doesn't recover. young people especially don't even notice that their kidneys aren't working to full capacity but the older they get the more they'll feel the consequences.
7:46 am
breathing in deeply and filling the body with air it's something that most people's lungs do automatically but 2 months after being on a respirator. has to really learn just that. they are going fragments and i find it hard to breathe sometimes when i'm sometimes limited in what i can do but these courses teach me how to breathe again properly how to breathe consciously that's really helpful so much. the lungs can get badly injured during a covert 19 infection but there is some good news they have a good chance of healing. that's according to initial observations. professor good smart english is comparing the tama graphic images of covert 1000 patients during and after their infection. fortunately we can already say that we haven't seen severe late affects in the majority of cases.
7:47 am
the lines heal well even in people who have had 3 weeks of intensive care you don't see much change 3 months later peter needs me to see a feel for and know. kathleen a priceless months if you know to now she can sing again. what about the psychological problems with corona patients and their families it's important to focus of on possible positive outcomes of the situation for example when i get infected by corona that i actually get symptoms it's less likely than that that i actually do not get any symptoms even if i have if symptoms of the colon a disease it's more likely that they were just disappear rather than i stay with them but looking on the bright side of life may be difficult if you're if the fear of losing your job because of corona what you tell those patients again it's important to focus on things which helps me to stay stable and besides.
7:48 am
limiting the time i am dealing with the covert pandemic. i have most most of us have to knowledge of what is helpful in stressful situations so it's important to stave is there for example to look after oneself to do positive things which i have food to be stable like reading on seeing a friend also input and it's always helpful to be more active so to do sports or something else and so if i have the opportunity to do some things like that it's easier for me to cope even with the economic consequences of the disease there's a service i think it came from australia which is called moot jim yeah so what is it it's so this is a program which is free so everyone can use that and it's available in many
7:49 am
languages. and it focuses on what we know from cognitive behavior therapy is helpful for people who tend to have depressive symptoms so it focused on kind of restructuring us thinking too to make it's more likely to have kind of positive thoughts and it helps you to be more active in your life which is the other important strategy for people who tend to have to process sometimes and it's always more easier to improve those strategies when you have a program which helps you because sometimes as we all know it's not so easy to start new things on your own. autumn is a rife in the northern hemisphere and with it there's an increase in france of cases the flu is a serious respiratory disease which kills many people every year and i as a g.p. tell you get your flu shot especially if you're chronically ill and especially in the times of corona it's important that as many people as possible get an accident
7:50 am
and. it comes on suddenly it's persistent and potentially very dangerous. influenza is the real. w.h.o. estimates that more than 10 percent of the world's population catch it every year. the flu is europe's most fatal infectious disease it's enough to be taken lightly especially for people over 60. to get. the flu is a serious respiratory infection which often has a very severe progression for people with preexisting conditions like heart or lung disease does this really follow and it can often be fatal for these patients. into the short term but isn't. just one small injection can stop that a new vaccine has to be created every year for the seasonal strain and it provides up to 80 percent protection when introduced into the body the immune system starts to create antibodies the body can then recognize and distro. the aim of the
7:51 am
flu shot isn't just to prevent people from getting infected at all it's to reduce the number of severe cases hospital admissions intensive care patients on ventilators and ultimately deaths and even a vaccine that's only partially effective can do that. amid the coronavirus pandemic it's important that as many high risk people as possible and vaccinated to help prevent a similar 10 years wave of flu and coronavirus patients this winter. so let's all hope that there will be. available for all of us. various kinds of vaccine for corona virus or in development one kind is an inductive ated virus vaccine that uses proteins from the virus to create the
7:52 am
vaccine viruses 1st up to be broken down into parts and their infectivity has to be destroyed so it's no longer dangerous. but it still has to provoke an immune response in the recipient so that the immune system develops antibodies to it. so what are the advantages and disadvantages. of this approach is well established. companies that develop and manufacture vaccines are familiar with it. and the production processes have been perfected. but certainly an advantage. the disadvantage is that it takes time to grow the underlying virus in large amounts if more is needed. a viral vector a vaccine uses a harmless live virus something different kind as a carrier to transport genes from the dangerous virus. into cells in the
7:53 am
recipient's body. a protein gene from the virus is 1st added to the benign one in the case of the novel coronavirus it's a spike protein gene. modified virus that resembles sars c.o.v. 2 in one key respect the immune system detects the offending protein and creates antibodies in response. for the safety requirements for growing the virus not as strict as with inactivated whole virus vaccines of the disadvantages are that it takes a lot of time and you have to choose vectors that are not affected by any preexisting immune response capability. and. then there are vaccines that use messenger or an egg for the novel coronavirus it is m r n a with instructions for making it spiked proteins. such vaccines prompt cells in the recipient to make such proteins themselves which in turn provoke an immune
7:54 am
response although these proteins are not dangerous they are still identified as enemies by the immune system which then creates antibodies and thus immunity. for. one advantage is that the safety requirements are much less stringent. another is that you can modify the r.n.a. quite quickly manufacturers say that within a short period of time perhaps 6 weeks are in a vaccine is complete produced in very large volumes millions of units you can't match that with vector whole virus or other kinds of vaccine. so each of these approaches has upsides and downsides nonetheless they're all considered worth pursuing it is likely that we need more than one vaccine. i guess it grown over to go away like this it will stay for longer so how can we keep our
7:55 am
spirits high. i think there are lots of opportunities we can do by all serfs to keep off mentored stayed stable without lots off the head of possibilities to support us in this like in the internet in counseling and all those kind of thing but maybe it's also an option to think about the chance once every crisis has a chance in it so. corona makes let's think about all our routines and maybe there are routines we are not very comfortable with but in in in non curled up times like many people who are struggling from too many appointments too many time pressure and all those kind of things and maybe this could be an opportunity to do you think about how we want to live and what's all very new reader of a off off leaving is and. very important also every crisis of a gold day even the corner prizes to go away and there will be time into the future
