01. the Ruhr changed his face 0'33 coal and steel once dominated this landscape. Remains of the name: "Coal pot", such as the Ruhr area, the largest industrial center in Europe, is also called.

1'46 even if life in the Ruhr has become more colorful, pollution remains a challenge. Modern baghouses are still lacking in some power plants, and some flow looks so: 2'00 straightened the Emscher - and abused as a sewer. A victim of industrialization. Now she is to be renaturalized. A first success is reflected on a small tributary.
