01. a Street Festival in aid of UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund. A Berlin district had the idea to collect money for the needy children in the world with music and raffle: an example of the resurgent civic-mindedness and the turn to the next in the Federal Republic of Germany. A growing number of people begins to realize that the solution of social problems Ansary woes is not just thing of the State. Others feel No more adequately represent their interests by pari ament and parties. Make citizens initiatives - such as these in Cologne, where citizens joined together in protest against Government plans for a closed chocolate factory. The authorities wanted a new commercial use. The citizen initiative designed a counter-model: conversion of the factory site in a leisure and residential complex.
Environmental protection - a controversial issue that mobilized many people also in the Federal Republic. The planned third runway for the Frankfurt airport has informed citizens and politicians into two camps. A talk of economic growth and new jobs, others protest against stronger flight noise and above all, however, that a large forest area to be sacrificed to the new runway. Runway opponents occupied the area and appealed to the courts.
Most German rivers are heavily polluted by industrial and House sewage. More stringent State water protection regulations have prevented the worst. But for an effective purification of rivers, the money is missing. However, resistance is forming. About on the Elbe, one of the largest German navigable waterways. Environmentalists blocked the river recently with a thousand sports and leisure messengers. The Elbe, one of Europe's richest rivers was 30 years ago. Of which virtually nothing remains. The few fish that is caught yet, may No more be sold due to contamination by heavy metals.
Citizen initiatives have made a general public demand the protection of the environment. But a stagnant economy and empty state coffers allow only the bare essentials. The restore of environment intact has become a task for generations.
02. flying is a stress profession. The reasons are quickly listed: tension during takeoff and landing, exposure to climate and time difference on long-haul flights, focus on the multitude of instruments and control lever in the cockpit. The flying personnel must be healthy, so that flight safety is not affected.
Deutsche Lufthansa flying staff is monitored by stringent health checks. Pilots must undergo twice a year a comprehensive medical check about themselves. A series of sophisticated individual investigations and a blood chemical analysis To give information about health status and physical performance of the pilots. This includes the measurement of the Vitalfunktion of his lungs.
A pilot needs to see and hear. The eye doctor checks the acuity, colour and above all the ability to the spatial vision. The Hörschärfe will be tested with a special device.
Of course also the next generation of pilots must be healthy. Before the medical examination, the suitability of the candidate for this job will be determined once. Result in more active written exams and psychological tests, whether the candidate has the required properties: capacity, memory, spatial orientation.
The candidate completed the so-called "link trainer" simulated flights. He must fly off prescribed, partly free courses, which he must calculate based on given information itself. Only 15 per cent of all candidates create the exam and be admitted for pilot training. This strict selection and the later permanent medical upper monitoring of flying personnel is a condition for security in aviation.

After presentation of the novel by Günter Grass, the Director Volker Schlöndorff produced a canvas Opus, which received the most international being the first German film: the American OSCAR. This week, Schlöndorff finished his new movie "The hoax". The last scenes were shot off in Hamburg on the river Elbe, a SideShow. The real action takes place in Beirut, capital of Lebanon. In the midst of war and destruction begins a German reporter meaning and morality of his profession to doubt. At the end of the year comes the film in cinemas.
"The marriage of Maria Braun" by Werner Faßbinder: also this a film that had success in many countries. For many years the productions of the young German directors were only an insider tip for cinema lovers. Now make them also, often for months to run in the cinemas of the domestic and foreign. Processing specifically German issues of the past and present, not only Cooper, the most prolific German Director, but overall the German film has established much his success. The international film critics praised the national atmosphere and peculiarity of this strip. Cooper, a tireless worker who turns oftmehrere productions at the same time, stopped in Munich just his "Lola": a book melodrama, with the he - has arranged an unflattering mirror of German society as several times before -.
Literature film adaptations were particularly successful. The latest attempt: a film about the "Magic Mountain" by Thomas Mann, staged by Hans W. Geßendörfer. This Director is also a strong proponent of the new German cinema.
It is not only Geißendörfers routine that creates a relaxed work atmosphere in the Berliner Studios. All parties believe in a box-office success of her film.
It is not only Geißendörfers routine, which creates a relaxing Arbeitsatmosphare in the Berlin Studios. All parties believe in a box-office success of her film. The prerequisites for this are given: A seasoned author and Director, a world-famous novel as a screenplay template and finally a good team of actors, which was reinforced by the American star Rod Steiger. Steiger plays the Mynheer Peeperkorn, which pulls in a Swiss sanatorium, the scene of this parable about life and death, the balance of his bizarre life.
05. a profession that seemed doomed to extinction has a future: the profession of the miner. Since the coal is in demand again, also the buddy on the Rhine and Ruhr is being courted. The old miners houses have been modernized or replaced by new buildings. And the "buddy" has retaken its top position in the pay scale. Hans-Georg Hirschfelder is one of them: 48 years old, married, 2 children. NET, the least what he earns in a month is three thousand mark.
Many mines had been closed in the years before the oil shock. The miners migrated into other professions. Nevertheless, the mining industry has today worry young. The technical progress made underground. Gait of coal mining as heavy lifting earlier, many buddy were battered physically early and had to prematurely "retire". Today modern machines remove the main work of him. Removal and transportation of coal are largely automated, the miner can be confined to a few handles.
Little remains of the once Sung Bergmann romance, with the heavy and dangerous work underground was transfigured. The miner of the year 1981 is just right. He has a clean, well-financed, especially crisis-proof workplace today. Because the fuel coal has received a new task: soon it is processed as an alternative energy source to the expensive oil to gas and gasoline.
06. Fluggerate, which only gives the wind up and drive. 81 in Paderborn while waiting for their pilots, who at a briefing on the 17. Prepared for world gliding Championships. Almost all flew German brands: a curious result of the second world war.
30 years ago, the Germans for the first time were allowed back in the air. Until then was the ban of the Allied victors. On the construction of gliders, threw themselves, because airplanes were still failed them. German designers were soon leader in glider construction.
Of the 81 gliding ACEs from all over the world traveled to Paderborn flew 76 German brands: high performance racer made of fiberglass, so-called "Super orchids". The two-time world champion in the open class, the Englishman George Lee, used just a product of his favourite of Klaus Holighaus, whose designer ambition competes with his sporting ambitions.
In three different classes, the glider pilot given their title holder. Of course hoped the German pilots on their home field advantage – the exact knowledge of topography and climate in this region of the flight.
Airplanes brought the gliders in speed and height. Then depended on the pilots on their flair for thermals. Triangle the courses they needed to fly over prescribed points and making photos: their competition documents for the arbitration.
Plane gliding is considered the most beautiful form of flying among pilots. They dream of a super Orchid in the cockpit of their transport or military machine. As world champion George Lee, who else makes the British air force Jet pilots. He showed his class as a glider pilot in Paderborn: he won his third title. The original designer of his aircraft, the German Holighaus became second.
