12:43 pm
related them. so everything's getting square. so it's clear that somebody, the forests are being cut down for timber that leads to the rivers getting shallower and the fish are disappearing. oh, earnest loads of worship. you returned to your car, passing by stark reminders of the climate crisis in siberia along the way. in summer, forest fires ravaged vast areas. the charge remains of trees stretch for kilometers . despite all the difficulties and re an feels at home and tucker. this is where he wants to live after he retires. he says, is one reason he does this job? it's not so much about the few roubles he earns. lou was hired, mike was for his the feeling of deleted sher. it's nice to know that someone needs you who are willing to see the shining eyes. when you bring the pension. that makes me forget all the difficulties of others with when i remember that i've done
12:44 pm
a good deed for someone, but what a deal as their own. in a few weeks time andriana the siberian milman will set off again on his roads through the russian tiger. ah, is january and then for many people across the globe, it's the month they decide to go without any more products in their day it but january now for a lovers of french cuisine, that means saying no 2 flags are the delicacy made out of deck or ghost liver, french sheriff. alex's good tear believes that people can enjoy the taste of her without animal cruelty and has fine dining restaurant in london. he has come up with the vigour alternative. oh, it looks like the french delicacy, frank. ha! a pat, a made of dark or goose liver, but no animals had to sacrifice their lives for this party, as it is a thank
12:45 pm
a full cra, it doesn't taste of torture, which is a, which is one of the, the calling region of the river. and not in this one. ah, these, the supply, the liver for real swagger, the epitome of luxury. but in order to fatten olivers, the geese are for spread, for the so called folk are on the other hand, no geese must suffer. it's made of mushrooms, lentils, and seasoning the flavors sweltering to recreate this dish is what the, what the annual will actually is in the around or in the field or the self. so there would be a lot of a lot of grains, but that would be a little help as well. and so it's very a digital to make the beacon patty resemble real flucker. beetroot is mixed in at the end. between billy and the beetle. gray is really that the blood in the, in the preparations. you have to be super careful not to put too much of those as
12:46 pm
a little goal or patti's big. but if you put the right amount, he comes to flight for a french talk chef. making do without real swagger is almost revolutionary. frank. i used to be a big hit in go to his restaurant. he sold up to 25 kilos a week. that made him a target for animal rights activists. and so he decided to look into their arguments for me, they will just ingredients that allow me to express my, my skill and my, my creativity under and so from then i decided that i need to still be a french f. as still, you know, do gasoline food, but i need to remove all the ingredients, so we started fresh his michelin star has since been revoked. nowadays he cooks and eats exclusive leave egan. restaurant critic, jo warrick doesn't have

the way chickens are being formed intensely formed away ports been intensely formed at his restaurant. the shaft is proud to break new ground even without a mission install. he's fully booked for the next few months. so hopefully he is gonna inspire or the restaurant to do the same. and most importantly, of the chef who are going to go into their creative juice into this and come up with the, with plan base creation that we cannot live without. that's good news for the ducks and geese as well as for the restaurant critic. as long as the chefs don't try imitating, we'll meet. but her patty is fine by him. 6 months have passed since devastating floods hit the r valley in western germany. the water is swept away, how the cars and trees, and also destroyed livelihoods, and live more than a 130 people died in the catastrophe,

a bit. and you can see that overall it's a fantastic quality. so the theme going to super quality from the whole 1st connect up to $200.00 kilos a year, about a quarter of which is made into jewelry. many gemstones can be found in the alps, including emeralds, amethyst's and garnett's off to very successful find. they make this deep time again the next morning to extract more crystals out of the crevice. might they find even bigger ones this time? this is a nice one. they have to close, unsecure. every hole lay, chisel out. digging for gems in the national park is subject to strict regulations, including the site, be re natured and they're only allowed to sell the crystals to jewelry makers. after every detail has been meticulously recorded. debbie advice, i know this won't probably be worth a good 1000 euros. were fuqua, maybe even a little more than a 1000 bible in all the brothers estimates the whole from this trip will fetch them
12:56 pm
around 2000 euros of which 10 percent will go to the state. but they say they aren't plundering the mountain. strict regulations ensure that only tiny amounts are removed and nature is left unharmed. and that's it for this week from focus on europe. thanks for watching and see you next time with ah, ah, with
