i'm david and this is climate change brags it's sex. happiness in 3 books. this is the book for you. to get smarter for free. for you to. move the food. right now you could say berlin is in between in a state of flux actually like much of germany and in fact the world the lockdown continues as the pandemic spirals further out of control contact restrictions
1:31 am
anxiety and no real end in sight the public and large sectors of the economy are feeling the strain and travelling remains strongly discouraged traveling is far from easy at the moment and i personally am still very hesitant about taking trips so i'm staying here and berlin and my hometown and despite all the restrictions on public life the city keeps evolving rapidly so there is even now a lot to discover plus. even under lockdown the city's on the move we'll show you what's new about town. we'll have a look at how berlin is presenting and so on line at the time of covert. and will go far far away to south africa's kruger national park. there's a new. underground star in 10 or 11 subway system was recently expanded and while
1:32 am
that may not seem like a noteworthy i bet the result is pretty stunning. the new extended hue 5 connects a number of popular sites in the city center and many will become one in its own right. to learn more i'm leading tell must he's an architect and has been offering tourism for a lens most iconic buildings for 25 years. what do you think of the whole it is about how station well i think it's gorgeous it's a functional straightforward station built with fine materials but still attractive in this black and white a steadicam. you know these columns are in fact inspired by the vaulted cellars of the building that preceded the red town hall it's actually
1:33 am
a kind of architectural aka type vaults supports and loads in pillars that directs the entire burden of the station onto a narrow footing between the trucks. and what's also noteworthy is having all the furnishings integrated into it so they coordinated with one another the wastebaskets the benches the information panels and so on it's all been redesigned here so it follows the same design concept. designed yeah it looks very tidy. and a great view of the area this is a very well placed exit if you're a tourist making your 1st stop and berlin city center. then when you say a ride on the new 5 is worth a. simply to appreciate the design. so. yes definitely i
1:34 am
believe these are the most beautiful and up to date subway stations to be built in modern times all the designs were chosen in competitions which means the best of the best got the chance to make their ideas a reality that's always the result of a competition even if it means a bit more effort but for berlin city center it's well worth it. all to stop at berlin's famous museum island the still under construction but its most spectacular feature can already be made out a ceiling full of stark. choice architect max jeweler got his inspiration from the scenery of a production of mozart's the magic flute. the funders tox stop was completed early on and has already been used as a setting for movies and opera. dance was understood. a particular
1:35 am
detail that sets this station apart is one of the architects called light capitals here you have daylight up above you can walk across the glass disks but of course it's also combined with auto official light that falls downward from these columns . and then you have these spotlights in the ceiling that remind you of stars it's got something cosmic even supernatural about it that i think you perceive subconsciously. because here we see the sky lights from above this is the other side to those of the columns of. the extension of the you 5 to 10 years cost 500000000 euros and added 2 point.
1:36 am
another. destroyed in the. world war 2 very controversial project. if i am going to see this building a new center how do you feel about it. as an architect and i believe i can speak for many of my fellows i don't see it as the best solution to bring an imperial palace back to life. and i wonder if it's the best. generation that we didn't know anything better to do. in the
1:37 am
center of the capital city that was supposed to take us into the future as well. tended to be very future. but to choose a backdrop that conjures up over 100 years of. i have to come out and say that makes me wonder. and the decision to down an example of an architecture that. represented a country for nearly 40 and had already achieved. i think that was pretty uncalled for actually. so i can't really warm to the palace. for there was a huge debate over what to do with the site before construction began what with you as an architect and the berliner half want it and. i would have liked to see the palace of the republic made over into
1:38 am
a really good center pompidou like in paris where a modern building in the middle of the old town has become a major attraction for me i would have liked to see an experiment to last with the future here that's what the home boat pharmacy 1st to be but i don't think that started any favors. after 8 years of construction works the humble form was inaugurated in 2020 but because of the pandemic it remains closed to the public for the time being it can only be visited virtually. nobody knows just yet when visitors will be allowed into this museum and while many others have reopened their doors the situation continues to be unpredictable. the little slowly berlin's museums are being allowed to reopen always at hearing to street covert protocols of course one of them is the famous natural
1:39 am
history museum of the city let's take a look. in order to get any you need to book that timeslot online the museum is most famous for its dinosaur collection. towering above visitors and over 13 metres this brackets are as is the world's largest standing dinosaur skeleton i'm here to see. the museum social media manager how are people responding to the museum reopening before and of course we're glad to see people come here again. we're only allowed to open under certain conditions that we have 2 time slots per day when 250 people can come in one of the morning and one of the afternoon and in fact the tickets for the 1st 2 weeks are booked out to no time at all yeah doesn't the start of the pandemic you build up an extensive online portfolio how's that going for them as a quote that are already active on social media or from the coronavirus sped something's up when it was added with a lot of tourists on instagram
1:40 am
a new to talk channel to bring in for example the generation sears and we offered a guided tours on you tube that could be users various perspectives on the exhibition and on the research collections we also added to podcasts beats and phones and zeus is a designer we. cast in shooting one of a tainted you could dismiss museums from the tool called. my mom didn't know my life as a. ticklish ridiculous leave 12 for. devices me only. 6000 so i get to. just missing from the box from the faucet and. how do you measure the impact of what you're doing. we're happy to let the jury had over 1000000 views on the digital form so i think you could call that
1:41 am
a success we have the figures from the social media challenge this one in richmond near my instagram for instance one 3rd to erin berlin with i do the 3rd and the rest of germany and the other 3rd are world wide and so we're producing in 2 languages. for a length natural history museum as one of the biggest of its kind in germany their collection encompass is there any 1000000 specimens since we were there the museum has had to close again because of the worsening pandemic situation. coalwood has fast track global digitize a show the music business is no exception the sector is among the hardest hit during the crisis with concerts here in germany come fluently relegated to our line platforms here's a look at one for lynn's music seem still has to offer these days even if it's only is there are those and once. the berlin are full armani the city is premier concert venue is for the present closed. even
1:42 am
so the berlin philharmonic one of the world's premier orchestras is holding concerts they can be heard on what's known as the digital concert hall an online platform. the digital concert hall was actually founded over 10 years ago concert recordings as well as documentaries and portraits of musicians can all be retrieved from the vast archive forthy. balin has 3 major opera houses the undisputed 1st among them is the berlin state opera on den linden boulevard which began as the royal opera into the pandemic is keeping the stage dark the house had been reopened in 2017 after 7 years of renovations primarily to make optimal use of state of the arctic used to design.
1:43 am
in spite of the coronavirus the house has also been holding primaries already planned though come to the minimum in the form of online productions. it's a am. the controls are in point of. back to the premieres we held on t.v. and online during the time of corona and o. own corona program as well had bigger audiences than otherwise 5 from one outside got number one should be pliable the online performances we chalked up an average of $10000.00 viewers per day and now for our broadcasts of lohengrin and general far from it we sense that they met with lots of energy and they enjoyed a wide distribution cough the industry and if you consider that we've got 1377 say
1:44 am
2000 and then these numbers the upper is reaching now a very encouraging album because i want to get. in addition to opera the concerts by the house all christer that starts capella balun are also going online though because of the pandemic with repertoire for small ensemble. 'd ringback 'd the digital programme of the starts out on today and london is it sensible free of charge but generally for 30 days only. music lovers the world over would do best to catch the show's.
1:45 am
club scene is of course world famous it's been languishing for over a year now the clubs and d.j.'s have meanwhile banded together to form an online network called united we straight. and then restrain itself in its united we stream was conceived on march 18th 2020 by the berlin club commission. and the we claim club culture network is a fund raising and streaming initiative to help berlin's clubs through the crisis. in billionaire copes in their careers a player from. the ninety's we stream rivals can experience deejays in empty shot of clubs and on the often rather unusual places around the. t.v. tower in the natural history museum. now the platform has moved beyond to become
1:46 am
a worldwide active network. as things stand now the best way to experience berlin as a tourist can also be found online be about berlin after is one among many possibilities. the about berlin app may not be a lockdown baby but it really does do the trick if you're yearning for some berlin in your life initially it was developed as a guide for history based walking tours of the city well now it can be excellently reappropriated as a teaser of what tourists can expect once the city rio. in-store so that.
1:47 am
the about during the coma crisis the about berlin app has taken on a somewhat different role normally it would be aimed at people wanting to take a self guided walking tour how has this app function of volved during the crisis itself and. regionally of course it was an app for i guess it's in 2 languages english and german for our international guests and now we've discovered that berlin is who have to stay in town are getting interested in it and getting to know their own city a little better and for that it's ideally suited. the kind why did you decide to build the out around the city's history. that. guests have told us we know that history is a strong motivator for them to come here and so we've conceived it a bit differently as a story when you think of history you probably think of dates but we didn't do that if we took a completely different approach we thought ok we'll experience history through stories and the halls are not just hoping for recovery for berlin's tourism sector
1:48 am
you're actively planning for it but how can you when everything is still up in the air. basically it's not all that hard to plan since where well there are hygiene concepts this touch of the ticketing there are times when someone wants a little harder is finding out when we can start to run. a bit but don't know when we can start. another highly anticipated moment is the reopening of the night and that's news am today it's still a construction site the original building dates back to the 1960 s. it was designed by german american architectural legend nice funda who are half. 6 years of renovation is the emblematic building open in august covered allowing of course but i did and what does the law enough to mean to berlin and to berlin or as you know it was a premier building for art in 20th century berlin built in 1968 when the wall was
1:49 am
still up so it was the building for art in west berlin today in the reunified city we have several national galleries alternate you know gallery for the art of the 19th century and this one for the art of the 20th century designed by nice vandar. yes but they are like busily renovating now what can visitors look forward to after the renovation and noise here. renovated the building very strictly as nice find out or originally planted in 1968 we wanted to preserve as much of that as possible and so we'll be reopening with an exhibition that i think he would have liked very much namely of alexander calder an artist who made quite a few mobiles and large sculptures and would like this sculpture exhibition to recall the great age of western modernism in which this building to was created shuffleboard or the thought of them serve me so would have left it my well to be
1:50 am
really structural it must have been a huge undertaking to get a building like this in shape for the next 100 to 200 years paid for what were the biggest challenges he led it's actually a much larger building than you'd think at 1st because from here un you see there's a valiant but it has this vast underground level for the collection and they've really taken everything apart some 40000 individual components have been taken outside the city refurbished and brought back again they regarded the entire building as one big work of the tufted that's what's the most special part of the new annoying that you know. i don't want to mention about it is that we actually took means found or very seriously take even in the technical specifications so when you stand here on the terrace you'll notice it has no incline every normal terrace has an incline to let the water run off but nice didn't want that he wanted this truly horizontal surface and to achieve it wasn't all that simple. we did it
1:51 am
anyway exactly the way he passed. 9 all the while but it's impractical but then it's very beautiful and elegant and. countless institutions around the world are anxiously awaiting the end of the pandemic so they can get back to business meanwhile the adam inhabiting south africa's kruger national park couldn't care less about this whole mess and this week's meet a local we catch up with a man who knows the place like the back of his hand bongo and the chief ranger of the park.
1:52 am
hi guys my name is bond and to join a ranger in the crew going to shell park i'm ready to take you out on the safari come with me let's go. on from the eastern cape call is born in canton and see which is. put in is a good i've been chasing the waltz ever since i was born. so walden less is more price of the fields god i have already learned to work in the group of pockets so amazing because krueger is so big they don't versity all the want like it's so rich. that is a marshall in gold so it's one of the largest groups are wrong and those eagles actually when they fully grown they can pick up a baby impala they specialize in mourning time visits we can see the tears that are dangling on the other side of the tree off their lives that just reading will.
1:53 am
every time i drive in these roads it's a new day every day i mean look at this vastness just open. just. could you be not happy. with. yourself and i think i might. one come to. try and on the bridge this is where we're from winning. this special it's amazing because they utilizing what's been there as part of the history so to have but actually train with accommodation i think to most places
1:54 am
where you actually sit and look at the water but not the water flowing underneath so it's very very unique to have that sound of the heap of good. the whole the ecosystem is here actually wanting to sometimes you don't need to go in the game you can just sit outside and literally the wild will come to you which is fantastic it's a sign of hope because last year was a very tough year for the tourism industry and then most of their colleagues they've been laid off and there were. no money it's an every day you estimate about profit 800 cars driving through the park every day i mean with along. a single vehicle driving literally the animals would actually we haven't seen literally big elephant dung on the road lions
1:55 am
leaping everywhere because there's no one there it's like they're begging for the torah. to come back to. the subject. i would suggest people they should come and explore kruger national park this is the best part of the. birdlet i'm a trouble is between paralysis and relentlessness being stuck in this limbo as something extraordinary even for a city as used to transformation and disruption as per let. how does scribe the current 5 in berlin nothing's really normal nowadays as it does feel like the city is awakening from a deep slumber slowly timidly and with a lot of skepticism regarding the future but who knows maybe we'll soon be able to travel safely again i certainly hope to see you next time somewhere in germany or
