All listeners who are joining in for the second part of Radio D still have the opportunity in this first lesson to get to know the completely normal chaos of the office.
Paula and Philipp’s next assignment takes them to a small village in Brandenburg. A very special kind of race is supposed to take place here. Of course the two reporters from Radio D could not miss out on that.
In the bar in Grünheide Paula and Philipp begin to ask around. The villagers are all convinced that the Trabbi will win the race against the Porsche. But Philipp sees it very differently.
In the bar in Grünheide a young man suddenly appears who Paula takes along to the finishing line of the race in Möllensee. What does the stranger know about the unusual race and what links him to Radio D?
In Grünheide strange things are happening. How can it be that the Trabbi reached its goal before the fast Porsche? In Jan, Paula has a quick-minded companion who knows where the mystery’s solution lies.
Jan begins his first day as an intern at Radio D. But Paula and Philipp hardly have time to take care of him because Compu has a new case for them. The reporters have to rush off to Bonn.
Philipp and Paula want to find out who is playing the piano so beautifully in the Beethoven House each night. In a street cafe they find out some interesting things. Have they got a hot lead or is it just rumors?
The two journalists from Radio D are still puzzling over whether the music students are right with their suspicions. But Eulalia is again one step ahead of them. She too has made a night-time discovery.
At the age of 22, Ludwig van Beethoven composed the world famous “Ode to Joy” that is now the anthem of the European Union. An audio play leads the listeners out of the Beethoven house and straight into the 18th century.
The professor takes up the listeners’ questions about the episodes so far. With the help of several audio samples he shows the listeners that they can already understand a lot without knowing every word that is said.
Philipp’s car is broken so the two journalists from Radio D have to travel to the site of their next investigation by train. Some very strange occurrences are taking place there. A clear case for Paula and Philipp.
Philipp and Paula have a first suspicion and want to take a look at what the laser experts are doing in the “optic town” Jena. And they already have an idea where they could get some information.
The two journalists from Radio D don’t get any further with their own investigations. Then, just at the right moment, Eulalia surprisingly pops up in Jena. Maybe she can save Paula and Philipp some work.
Paula and Philipp have come a step closer to solving the mystery. They now know where the laser beams are coming from. But Eulalia has not returned from her reconnaissance flight. What could this mean?
The mystery of the secret laser beams is almost solved. But Paula and Philipp have little reason to be happy. The whole story is already in the newspaper. Where did their rivals get all the information from?
In the 18th century Jena attracted numerous great thinkers from various other towns. Among them was the famous writer Friedrich Schiller. Philipp and Paula present a radio play about his first lecture in Jena.
Paula and Philipp are busying themselves in Berlin with the art project “United Buddy Bears” that is being organized by artists from 120 different countries. An interview should reveal more details about the project.
In Berlin Paula, Philipp, Jan and Josefine visit the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and the wall path, which shows where the Berlin Wall stood. Radio D presents a radio play about the construction of the wall.
This time in the Radio D studio Paula is looking at German reunification. She has invited several guests to discuss this matter together with her.
The excursion through Berlin ends for Paula, Philipp, Jan and Josefine with a relaxing and informative meal in the garden of the Tacheles Art House. There Josefine makes an interesting acquaintance.
This time Jan is visiting a school that offers an unusual idea for a German project. He asks the pupils why they are learning German on top of their mother tongue, and what they want to do later in life.
Now it’s time once again to say goodbye: unfortunately Jan’s internship is coming to an end and Philipp and Paula are thinking about a letter of reference. Today Jan expresses his generosity.
