Coming up on the show: New man-made waterways in Germany's Lausitz region, DJ Paul van Dyk plays Verdi, barbecuing vegan food, a homemade futuristic car, and the latest from Austrian artist Erwin Wurm.
Car of the Future
Meet the Cosmotron - it's the work of Paul Bacon from Britain. He built this car the way he envisioned people in the 1950s and 1960s thought cars of the future would look like. The engine is from a BMW. The rest is pure imagination. The car can reach speeds of more than 200 kilometers per hour and draws a crowd wherever it goes.
DJ Paul van Dyk
The German DJ combines techno music with the operatic sounds of Giuseppe Verdi at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich as part of its "Opera For Everyone" series.
Barbecuing Vegan Food
German chef and cookbook author Nicole Just teaches people how to cook vegan. She shows her pupils how to make dips, salads and sausages that are free of animal products. We meet her at a cooking school where she is teaching the course "Vegan Barbecue". Just actually comes from a butcher's family in northern Germany, but she hasn't touched animal food products for years now.
The Lausitz Lakeland
This area in eastern Germany that used to be a mining region mainly extracting lignite is now being transformed into a water wonderland for tourists. The excavated pits are being filled in with water to form man-made lakes. Eventually, 23 lakes will be formed.
Artist Erwin Wurm
The Austrian is back in his native country to present his latest work on occasion of the 30th birthday celebrations of the Ropac Gallery in Salzburg. His new work is very vocal, considering "human sculptures" form the essence of it.
