01 Müritz National Park 0'46 Lakes - so far the eye can see, forests, swamps, bogs and rare species - an area in northeastern of Germany, distinctive: the Müritz National Park. This landscape was formed by an ice age about 12,000 years ago.
1'12 no other region in Germany is so sparsely populated like this in the Federal State of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania - and should remain so.
1'30 this National Park, one of ten in Germany, should by themselves exist. Man is to only observe for example the rare fish and sea eagles. Cranes on the vast banks of the 117 lakes make station on their winter migration.
1'58 during GDR times the area was hunting the political prominence, partly military training area. The Müritz National Park project was begun by a group of environmentalists in motion. And last year, the citizens initiative received the European environmental award - for the dedicated backup of expires as undisturbed nature. This also means: in the evening to let the visitors like to leave from here.
02. the invisible machines 2'37 a creature that usually only trouble. Thereby, the fly would cause complete admiration. Alone the eyes allow the insect with its many tiny facets a panorama view of the today's technology can only dream.
2'55 nature serves the technology as a model, to push forward into new dimensions. The keyword is: micro systems technology.
3'08 micro-systems are the key to step into a new era of high technology.
3'17 turbines, gears and mini laser the size of a grain of sand. The future lies in small, multifunctional systems.
3'27 one of the leading research centers: the Fraunhofer-Institut in Munich. What looks unspectacular, is a result of years of work: the world's smallest pump. -Implanted in the human body it can be used, for example, as insulin pump. 3'49 in the production of aggregates of such mini is the highest purity criteria to be observed. Any dust particles must be excluded.
4'02 unlike microchips is based on a three-dimensional construction of Micromechanics. In the etching reactor, tiny structures out be modulated by chemical conversion or x-rays.
4'20 connected with microchips are systems that can operate independent and respond.
4'33 developed one of the world's smallest laser micro researchers at MBB in Ottobrunn, it fits comfortably in a matchbox. Rotating mirrors make the laser beam visible.
4'50 only under a scanning electron microscope you can see applications: inside a plant cell tiny particles can by means of laser micro beam are fixed and moved. Laser light as optical tweezers; 250 times finer than a human hair.
5'09 micro systems are needed especially in medicine. But also in the environmental technology, gene technology or Meß - und REGELTECHNIK. -A new, this time invisible technical revolution ahead of us.
03. documenta ' 92 5'28 a man rises up. The Koreans Keunbyung Yook builds a work of art - his contribution to the traditional world art show "Documenta" in Kassel.
5'41 "Korean art - so Keunbyung Yook - is for me no technical art, but a spiritual. Contemporary European art has to offer in addition to the intellectual depth in the main technique. I want to merge these two cultural worlds to a rendezvous."
6'01 art as a balancing act - nearly two hundred artists were invited to the "Museum of the 100 days" followed; never were so many from Africa, Asia and Latin America. And just in time for the opening of "Documenta 9" also the rendezvous by Keunbyung Yook began: A Korean children eye met a German.
6'34-changing works of art - or those to be touched.
6'45 brought space and time out of balance. -For 100 days, the Kassel Documenta will represent current world art.
7'01 an apocalyptic installation has created the Cubaner Ricardo Brey.
7'10 "my artwork is a reflection of all the current problems in the world!"
7'18 for three years has been the exhibition makers around the world travelled to make their selection. The artists - renowned as unknown - have created new for the "Documenta 9".
7'42 is one that still re-examine his artwork, the Nigerians Mo Edoga. He needs the audience - even for his pronouncements: "what I'm doing here is world art, which is grown on Occidental crap. You can articulate the best environmental awareness with my work."
8'02 that she has "Documenta" - always food for thought given.
04. withdrawal of troops of the army 8'11 spirit of optimism in the U.S. Army. Currently, like here in Garlstedt near Bremen, they said for many U.S. soldiers and their families to say goodbye. The end of the East-West conflict has made possible the troop reductions in Europe.
8'26 since the end of the second world war are American soldiers in Germany and guaranteed here peace and freedom. -A welcomed by many and was particularly enthusiastic: Elvis Presley.
8'43 summer 92: in Nuremberg, the U.S. armed forces have invited to their annual boat race. For Sergeant of Bah Watts it is also a final picnic with his German friends. In a few days, it's homeward with the family.
9'03 son Blaine was born in Germany.
9'10 seven years were Bah and stationed his wife Anita in Nuremberg. You have probably been felt. The many memorabilia are now carefully packed.
9'24 final cleaning in the barracks. What will most Miss Anita?
9'31 "The food, the area and the people here."
9'39 and how is the mood among the men?
9'43 "most of them are pretty sad that they will go away. You have now good friends or family in Germany. I mean those who have married Germans. You are really sad."
9'51 also the unity of Bah and Anita will be deducted. More than 110,000 US troops will return to mid-90s. The time will remain in Germany for the most fondly.
10'06 "I would in the States recommend to anyone, to make a visit here. My family just came over and was completely thrilled."
10'16 a souvenir from Bayem for the family in Kalifomien should of course not be missed - but then says goodbye to it by friends and neighbors. 10'29 "bye, bye boys and girls"!
05. the island concept Heligoland 10'36 course on Helgoland in the North Sea. No other German island is so far upstream the Mainland.
10'47 not just normal holidaymakers rest here, in the cleanest air in Europe. There are over half a million day tourists coming across from the North Sea coast a short per year. 11'00 there is bustle in the restaurants. The energy consumption is immense.
11'05 also needed lots of drinking water. -What is valid for the guest, is true of all for the 2,000 Islanders: they rely on the safe functioning of utilities.
11'22 as a unique compound system was created, independent from the Mainland. The centrepiece is a block heat and power plant, consisting of two diesel engines, delivering also heat in addition to energy - for example for the swimming pool.
11'40 this heat pump uses lake water temperature and gains energy from it.
11'50 the most obvious source of energy: a wind turbine - in the engine room at 50 meters high is a quarter of the island current generated.
12'00 all installations of Heligoland in a federated system work together. Drinking water: The lake water is heated by the heat pump and in the pipe system. With wafer-thin membrane film, the salt water is filtered - almost 1 million litres daily. 12'25 for clean air provides this desulphurisation plant: the environmentally friendly energy concept of Heligoland makes the island of lavish supplies independent and the red rocks in the North Sea all the more attractive.
06. free climbing - other mountaineering 12'46 Hamburg has no mountains, but more bridges than Venice. If Mathias Week wants to get some fresh air, he searches the height above the stream of the river Elbe.
12'58 of 24-year-old is a photographer and Hamburg's best climber. In his apartment he has imitated the pitfalls of the mountain world – more than 100 handles he steel arm and finger muscles almost daily.
13'20 Mathias Week is Freeclimber for 11 years. On weekends, he defeat the few Northern Rock climbing and the Streß of everyday life with a friend.
as the traditional climbers use 13 Anders Freeclimber ropes and hooks only to safeguard, to reduce potential crash consequences. Before launching into the smooth rock face, played through delicate movement sequences in the head and hands with magnesia made smooth and protected from injury.
13'58 the climbing movement comes from the United States. It requires athletes who see the stimulus not only in the Summit of happiness. Extreme levels of difficulty, which are measured in international competitions are what's fascinated.
14'19 free-climbers know their havens - they know where they can strain the day form according to fingers and toes. Mathias Weck has climbed some of the most important European walls. Soon, he wants his "Ballet in the vertical" in the climbing of number 1 of the United States, the Yosemite dance National Park.
