11:31 am
a close connection to nature. today we kick off the show from a different perspective now i am sitting up here and i'm in a mobile foldable bed for mountaineers now it's practical for anyone who might be out climbing for days and in need of a place to sleep so if there aren't any accommodations in the area they can simply attach this bed to any ledge and spend the night under the stars well you might ask who would actually want to do this hero max reporter axel prima vaizey was a willing volunteer. and. if it's really. this is the place where i'm going to spend the night i don't know if i can handle this. i will spend
11:32 am
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 is $1500.00 metres above sea level. of clearing out and i'm scared 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 partner legislator. marcos also shows me how to get back up again of course. looks really easy but expand my. home. ok.
11:33 am
at this point it's a vertical drop of nearly $200.00 metres. but the head of up sailing so pack up our goal. with a good laugh. now let's build my bed it's called a part of it and it's a frame made of aluminum tubes covered with the surface of my love for brick this is what professional climbers used to spend the night on steep rock faces that can be climbed in one day. now we're going to connect. the plank. to rail to the outer side. just for here. to. make sure i accidentally do it right because it's late tomorrow. except for what he's going to tell him. yeah this is pretty much it actually so this is.
11:34 am
my bet for tonight. marcus make sure the part of it is safely secured to the cliff. you have to if there actually. it looks scary from out here takes a few minutes and it's getting better and ok don't worry actually i'm claiming the best for use thank you that it's time for you ok to be honest right now i don't think if this is a good idea but i'm going to try it anyway but. i'm really getting scared now the big moment has arrived i'm sorry down to my high altitude bag and take off my shoes of course because at home i wouldn't be wearing them to bed either. let it go. up. it looks so easy when he was stepping up and sitting near people in ok.
11:35 am
city to myself. completely different story. as the sun goes down temperatures soon begin to drop time to get some shot. 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 apocalypse would flip over our confidant ok so everything's safe and if i may be get scared in the night. i brought me little companion and he's of course. security as well
11:36 am
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 oh ok this may. just brought some coffee to sipping some hot brew and taking in these stunning view what 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
11:37 am
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 hand between 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 7900. 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 to the lord o. studio to see how they are keeping their gold leaf business alive.
11:38 am
much of what clippers here is indeed gold for centuries venice has flaunted its wealth with this precious metal. now very few craftsman chops are left that work gold by hand. and the many got so family runs one of the world's last gold beating shops under the name better come back even. though 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 in. the purest $24.00 carat gold is noted at over $1000.00 degrees celsius and cast as
11:39 am
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 80026000 pieces from it and 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 retain heated over and over and put through the mill again. restore to go wood if the colors nice and yellow you know the gold is pure. the hue tends towards a reddish you know it's an alloy no. it might then contain silver or a little copper if you did a. little. when the gold ribbon in several metres long it's cut into lengths
11:40 am
folded and cut again into little squares saddam in a godso lays 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 their worked with a hammer. for the mark of it out but. 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. hammer ways to kilos almost nothing this one weighs 4 kilos so it's a bit heavier but for me that's nothing that 8 kilos well this one's pretty heavy. the hammering produces thousands of these gossamer leaves a single leaf weighs barely as much as a hair eleonora many godso hopes this age old craft may be passed on to the next
11:41 am
generation. is all it's a great responsibility because this very special work is in danger of dying out and that's not a nice thought this could one day just be forgotten. forces that . are restore and gilder a lease a bad song uses a great deal of madea better. gold leaf and her workshop. it takes a steady hand and the right conditions to work with this delicate material. even a gentle breeze could ruin everything. the. difference between and dust really produced and hand made gold leaf is the norm and the industrial gold leaf is much thinner and more fragile it's really hard to do good work with. the leaf tears easily and in the end it just doesn't look as good
11:42 am
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 instrumentalists 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 see how he captures sounds for his musical collages.
11:43 am
british musician cosmos 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. check the sounds out and arrange them on a sampler so i can trigger 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 sounds to sample . 'd nature to me i guess just means a celebration of life is just. one of the songs every life has a passion for living and i think it's just. this true isn't it just being
11:44 am
a natural place you just get that sense of just life bursting forth from becoming constantly. and. 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 a chaotic kind of howling. gusty sound and i'm making a piece of the moment involved when. you can tell so many stories and through a piece of music or through sounds that would take you know books to explain. or cosmos music is like poetry.
11:45 am
he's played shows in many different corners of the world and he has a soft spot for performing in me. i mean i love playing outside. i for. one of my favorite things that seem to play to places about 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 could listen to music i i'd like to think they could and i certainly believe that the creatures in the place is going to music. i'm seeing. a change right june june with.
11:46 am
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 intention 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 a layman curry versed 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 makes it so special.
11:47 am
this isn't working man's food it's not trendy food it's for everyone it's food for the homeless and the presidents alike who 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 for lynne curry worst is the best way in the world so pig out of it. literally curry words that any time of the day or night we open at 8 am and close at 5 am we're open 21 hours a day. i have lots of vienna bitch i manage her 36 in berlin is quite spare districts about 20. limbs original curry worst was only made of pork now there are
11:48 am
many other variations but we only sell curry worst made a pork or beacon curry worst as an alternative iannaccone both new. products very worst we only use genuine humble and apple fed pigs from our own farm which i know . i am stuck on cause i'm head of production at the caught up oh farm but yours. mine 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 or to go to. next comes the felling the curry worst is stuffed into an intestinal skin then it's cooked in a steamer. the berlin classic is the seanad hour on a palette meaning the curry worst has no skins want to go.
11:49 am
to some of you did to al east germany we grew up eating curry worst without skin and we've stuck with that variation to this day. my name is doug my canuck we're standing here in front of our business because take away and i'm the 3rd generation to run it here. this is so you see my grandparents and parents introduce the curry worst without skin to east berlin in 1960. invest the last really an already had curry worst with skin back then and my grandpa was always interested in new products so he decided to introduce curry worst 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 curry worst with or without skin curry worst with skin
11:50 am
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. 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 catchup made of 87 percent tomatoes a little sugar a little bit of a little spice and i think that's it. we're. living in before every curry worst shop tries to be unique and i and promotes its own songs in the end it comes down to the vendors personal to. based on the photo. of the summit mango pulp or apple sauce or wish to share sauce or soy sauce it
11:51 am
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 its taste that is much to go. with the food it's not like there's one typical berlin curry worst with that the vendors are making each of us sells what works best for us the photo everything goes well. burning wood for fire is common practice however burning wood for building seems like a contradiction in terms but now an ancient japanese method of charring wood is catching on in europe it's called shoes and it means refining by fire by burning the surface
11:52 am
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 forts 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 that if you strip there's a very little oxygen flow to which it will really hurt but it's just. the point is to preserve the wood fiber while alemany being the nutrients that attract vermin and fungus that makes the wood more resilient and durable the japanese discovered this effect a long ago after a number of towns suffered fires when there was 3050 fires they found that the houses which have been done before which at this kind of clearing didn't burn that
11:53 am
easily off the. beautifying 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 and 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. it took time to get so far but i think we can really make a the best we can. the burning process makes the wood a long lasting and low maintenance building material it can stand at least 50 years without needing any further treatment and black is
11:54 am
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. as you can see with strike lights reflection gets more deft and. even the trains used to serve the food are made with charred wood. and. peter vine and company employs designers carpenters and wood specialists to find new ways to use the material besides merely ask decorative paneling. in the future we would like to explore making the whole furniture i think it's so unique that you won't gets any other way. to find and uses a blowtorch to test the fire resistance of the wood and the beginning it was the
11:55 am
primary tool in his can't i just did it for myself to make my own house and off the debts of the developments came so i started with a blowtorch and i did a little small ovum and now it's really that it's it's not a trick with local it's a coffin ship and that's something with time which takes concentration and i think that's that's the most beautiful thing that has. started to does advance it's i can imagine is that we can produce and as long as it's black. or be a divine and whether interior or exteriors architecture black it's very beautiful indeed. that we wrap up another show but be sure to follow us on social media or check out our website for this week's struck if you enter you could become the proud owner of this i pad from me and everyone here in berlin as always thanks for watching well seeing anything.
