national obsession with hiking. 50 years ago the apollo 11 spacecraft was on its way to the moon when the astronauts landed and live pictures were beamed into our living rooms it altered off a section of the moon and indeed outer space and in films the whole perception of the moon changed as well here's some examples of the moon on film starting with real pictures of masses achievement after a century ago. it was perhaps the greatest human adventure of all time shown live on television. a new documentary apollo 11 tells the story of the 1st manned moon landing it features digitally restored footage from nasa's archive as well as rediscovered film reels that had never been seen before you have to kind of well down one of the key moments or the moments of humanity that happened what were the things that stood out what really got me was the emotion on their faces

you could see the weight of what they were about to do. but the world of cinema was fascinated with the moon long before people landed their. french director many years to realistic a trip to the moon from 1902 is thought to be the 1st feature film ever made and certainly the 1st science fiction movie. new year's was a performer and to me is a trip to the moon combines his flair for the theater and magic with the potential of the new medium of film the growth of crazy was that like scientists land on the moon to find a magical place filled with unknown dangers where dreams could become reality. 25 years later german director fritz long portrayed a journey to the dark side of the moon with his woman in the moon in it a troupe of humans leave earth looking for gold which. they find here the moon is

seen as a place of escape from its problems as well as a place of problems in its own right of course since the lunar mission film portrayals of the moon have become more realistic even now they reveal as much about how our own fears and desires as they did a century ago. mark cully melissa holroyd is over the moon about this topic. it's always fascinated us though hasn't yet and it's fascinated us through film for over a century the moon is also very symbolic isn't it represents time because it's constantly changing it represents birth and breed birth it also represents the dark place within ourselves that we go when we need to regenerate and start again but since the moon landing the way perceived in movies has become much more realistic gets become a lot more real estate fish or has that when i think about 1st man the 2018 film
8:48 pm
that is a very realistic film it's a very visceral film ryan gosling plays neil armstrong and he's in a very very dark place is surrounded by death his own daughter dies of a brain tumor his trip to the moon is something that he has to do he's not doing it to be a hero so he had the moon is shown as a dark lonely place words ok to just be it's also a place of new beginnings we see armstrong all alone dropping his dead daughter's bracelet into a crater and then he returns from death so to speak back to life on earth. he's transformed but not for the better and another film. has the moon as a prize of transformation is the extraordinary film by duncan jones called it's called simple it's called moving yes it's a great film and it's easy to watch you can just watch it on you tube i think here we have 7 brockwell playing i'm. he's on
8:49 pm
a 3 year long mining mission on the moon and he really is on the dock side of the moon it's a very moving film about free will and rebirth and han. and unlike the some ready the moon is perceived as mysterious it can affect all sleep patterns and is the stuff of legends which is kind of great for movie plots yeah its sound is this sort of guide and this influence on some movie plots take that a step further so we have like things that the cold horror a classic and the american way of wolf in london from 1981 this film blends the macabre with a lot of humor it has a modern take on the classic werewolf legend with 2 u.s. backpackers getting into a lot of trouble ok melissa you can go from how the. american werewolf would love to fight for covering it as always thank you.

now we're going to get comfortable with great design of katherina camp ronnie that's what she calls a collection of everyday household objects which she can but so that they have no use at all on oh that sounds strange doesn't it she's actually an architect with a wicked sense of humor and does this in her spare time. how is anyone supposed to water flowers with this can. or sweep with this group. how can you lift a pot off the stove with both handles on one side or eat with this fork. cut to really come profit renders everyday objects unusable also course my intention is to make people laugh but i think there is a 2nd level. like us not to take these things all around us for granted they were designed according to certain rules and only when you break these rules of the do you learn to appreciate these objects again so we should always think beyond our
8:51 pm
own limits. i love that above the world almost but across the. country i mean a company works as an architect in athens whenever she has the time she works on her design project the uncomfortable recall election has now grown to over 30 objects some of them have been used in an advertising campaign off the wall concepts have gone viral on the internet. i am not going to come upon a years working on more uncomfortable design objects. she takes the ergonomics out of her tooth brush. because a few months must have a good beginning of ip what's most important is to pick a suitable object it has to be something that's easy to use and that we take for granted because we see it every day. it will be then i think about how i use this object and i sabotage one aspect of this use like you don't i come up with several
8:52 pm
different ways to do that and the one that makes me laugh the most while i'm sketching it out is the one that i develop their moral curiosity make him laugh in the paper what i'll. come across and he also gives workshops to teach others how to . design unusable thinkers she delights in the many useless ideas with the participants. company has exhibitor designs all around europe the workshops are also small exhibitions of her uncomfortable collection. this project the uncomfortable came at a time that was very hard for me or uncomfortable i wanted to become a designer but with the economic crisis in greece that wasn't easy so i decided to become an uncomfortable designer and this project was an expression of my situation . for examination of the uncomfortable goes on. the

training company has plenty more unusable ideas. she's mad i love it it's time to beat the germans are continuing series why rachel should looks at particular things that a very german this week she's looking after sports well almost if it was in the lympics germany would win gold silver and bronze because they are better prepared than anyone else to go hiking. have you ever been you're on holiday and you decide to go for a hike but you didn't really prepare for it and of course who do you come across on the trail. thanks. wow serious shoes check out practical base rock that the classic cold weather jacket was that

special trousers musicals that the need oh boy. there they are the walking. the germans love to walk of course those walking on those walking zone talks about see a guy last sunday stroll has long been established feature in the lives of many german families but a step up from this is vanda or hiking the difference isn't necessarily about grade you know strenuousness it's the band on involved planning a route and equipment. hiking is the most popular out there activity in germany whether it's a longer journey with stopovers and hiking huts or a quick day trip at the weekend young and old in any season they just love it. i fell for it does not in the mother's hands get arms off and one has been no my was if you didn't get this money i should also. mention old black church and to go to
8:55 pm
church on finding a speech that you might have someone known as. soon hot. mankinds and shrunk under nitrogen position lesson on trust on off relationship on the law to. the germans been raping the hills since time immemorial not quite back in the day hiking was for religious pilgrims tradesmen scholars and vagabonds. the german mountains and forests were seen as uninviting dangerous and it wasn't until the 18th hundreds that german nature got itself some good publicity courtesy of the remand poets and painters joining forces to big up the great outdoors people started to realize they could walk for pleasure the arrival of the railway meant that even the city dwellers had easy access to the countryside. and then the germans did what the germans do best they go organized they formed hiking associations marked out parts and even set up the 1st ever youth hostels. sadly
8:56 pm
even the wholesome pursuit of hiking couldn't escape the shadow of national socialism the nazis saw hiking as in the neatest selfish hobby and they funneled to use hiking members into the hitler youth. but in the post-war years or a new connection to nature became part of the healing process for many germans today hiking is more popular than ever and it's big business the germans spend billions of yours every year on hiking trips and sunday equipment. that's certainly plenty to keep them occupied in germany some 300000 kilometers of signposted hiking routes along forest trails alpine tracks wind valleys and coastal. but the germans are no longer just hiking at home one in 4 will indulge their hiking habit while holidaying abroad as well wherever they off there's another vital element to a german hike it's so important it's got its own but i know them all stopping off for refreshment along the way maybe it's not sold some cake or just a cold beer to keep your energy up for the law.
