In this edition:

Soccer Ball History
Meet German photographer Jens Heilmann who got World Cup soccer balls from every single one of the 19 tournaments and has now written a book about it. The first World Cup started back in 1930 in Uruguay.

Apartment Design by Jean-Paul Gaultier
The French fashion designer has now done the interior design of an entire home. You can see what he did with the 250-square-meter dwellilng which is on display at the Architecture Museum in Paris for an entire year. Gaultier first worked for Pierre Cardin, and after also working in the Philllippines, he returned to France and eventually set up his own label, exploding on to the scene in the 1980s.

The Cello Academy in Rutesheim
We visited the Cello Academy in Rutesheim (near Stuttgart), which takes place from May 29th to June 6th and which offers instruction to top-notch students by some of the world's greatest cello virtuosos. Sixty students from all over the world were chosen with each one given three opportunities to perform in concert.

Singing Sensation Rox
We portray the up-and-coming British pop singer Rox who is currently on a European tour. Rox (full name: Roxanne Tanja Tataei) is part Jamaican, part Iranian, and grew up in a very religious family which allowed her to sing a lot in church. Euromaxx checks out her first album "Memoirs".

The German Jeans Brand "Closed"
"Closed" is in big demand in the U.S., especially among some of Hollywood's biggest stars, like Heidi Klum and Sarah Jessica Parker. The company was actually founded in Italy in 1978, but later the Giers family from Hamburg bought the rights for northern Europe.
