01 City Portrait Celle an unbroken Idyll of half-timbered from four centuries: this is Celle, once residence and today a district in Lower Saxony, Germany. Celle is one of the few German cities that are spared from the destruction of World War 2.
Old maintain that and can be used to make the present: this widely diversified currency kept Celle before becoming an open-air museum. From the once Ducal stables, tourists in the surrounding Lüneburger Heide ride today.

02. 30 years of NATO accession to German and French soldiers at the military ceremony in the German army's officer school: an image that reflects the normality in free Europe, and that would have been unthinkable for previous generations.
The Federal Republic is a Heartland of the Western defence alliance. Armed forces from seven NATO countries stand here side by side and signaling a possible opponent, that he now faces in an attack the resistance of all allies.
Exactly 30 years ago, the Federal Republic was inducted into the Western defense Alliance. From opponents of the war had become allies, who built a collective defense system based on common values and objectives that will help secure a half a lifetime already peace in Europe.
In addition to the United States and Canada, now 14 European States belong to NATO. Spain joined as the youngest Member, and so recently also Spanish spoken, when the German army invites the NATO forces for maneuvers in the Federal Republic.
Just as the European Community, NATO has helped that the free peoples of Europe have grown together. In the face of heavily armed Warsaw Pact, the need for security is exactly SOG roß as the northernmost NATO member Norway as Turkey. These two States make up the flanks of the Western defense system.
In both countries, the NATO multinational maneuvers regularly flies the flag. A special role in the Alliance has grown to Germany due to its geographical location. The border between East and West goes through the middle of Germany. On the border of the free West is defended - quote President Reagan in a speech before the German Bundestag.
According to the United States, the Federal Republic of Germany makes the greatest contribution to the common defence within the Alliance. The Bundeswehr is a force with purely defensive character. Their most associations are deprived of national command and subordinated to NATO command. Also, the German Constitution prohibits any form of a war of aggression. The Federal Republic before setting up their armed forces relinquished on the manufacture and possession of nuclear weapons.
The Federal Republic has nothing to hide. She invites military observers from East and West to Bundeswehr maneuvers. She pursued détente while maintaining the military balance toward the Soviet bloc. The readiness of the West to disarmament negotiations has prevented the Soviet Union from constantly increasing their military threat in Europe. As long as the East this policy remains the Federal Republic will do everything together with its NATO partners, to maintain the defense of the West. Because it is the balance of power between East and West, that will secure the peace in Europe for 40 years.
03. "Zakspeed" the formula 1 missiles are still crowd-pullers on the traditional race tracks in the world. The big teams are set the tone on, and behind them the bigger companies, whose Geld keeps running this Millionensport. Outsiders had so far no chance.
