A school for Russia's young offenders | DW Documentary
 
12:32
A boarding school in the village of Serafimovka in the Urals aims to re-educate juvenile offenders. Vadim is one of 70 teenagers who live in a boarding school in the village of Serafimovka in the Ural mountains. None of them are here voluntarily. The school is a re-education facility for juvenile offenders. 17-year-old Vadim caused an accident with a stolen car, and was sent to a re-education facility for juvenile offenders in the village of Serafimovka in the Ural mountains. All the boys here have criminal backgrounds, from pickpocketing and assault to drug-dealing and even murder. They're here to be rehabilitated. Most of them spend about two years in Serafimovka. The teachers use both discipline and kindness, effectively standing in for the boys' parents – many of whom are alcoholics, drug addicts, or behind bars. Back in the outside world, many of the boys end up joining the Russian armed forces. A Report by Juri Rescheto. ______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Working online and traveling the world - digital nomads | DW Documentary
 
25:56
Working online whilst traveling the world sounds like a dream job for many people. But what exactly is a digital nomad? Pete and Supi live as digital nomads. They travel the world permanently, work on the road and are always online. Their lives epitomize the digital revolution and how it is changing how we work live. Many people dream of living and working on the road - a dream that has come true for Pete and Supi. Driven by a passion for travel, they set out to escape the dreary routine of everyday life. They want to achieve maximum self-fulfilment without big safety nets and full-cover insurance, in a nomadic world of adventure. Pete is a DJ, so parties and big cities are a defining part of his life, whereas Suparni aka Supi is the opposite; she’s looking for spirituality and awareness. The two show us the huge spectrum of opportunities that the world of the digital nomad has to offer. Despite their fundamental differences, they both earn their living by working remotely. The digital age has made this way of life possible: without the Internet, it would be almost unthinkable. But their lifestyle does have its limits, as is becoming especially evident to Suparni with her plans for parenthood. But it's hard to find someone you love who also loves the same sort of lifestyle, and the constant travel is a big obstacle. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

What did Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" really look like? | DW Documentary
 
42:26
Leonardo's famous painting "The Last Supper" hides a secret: only 20 percent of the original work is still visible. In the style of a thriller, the documentary attempts to reconstruct what it originally looked like. Leonardo da Vinci was the epitome of the Renaissance Man. May 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of his death. The artist created world-famous works such as the fresco "The Last Supper" - perhaps the most famous. It is still in its original setting, on the wall of the dining room of the former Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. The painting, which is 4.60 meters high and 8.80 meters wide, has been undergoing restoration for the last 19 years. But the restorers now know that only 20 percent of the original is visible today. So what did something that is the focus of so many legends originally look like? Our investigation also takes us to the small Belgian abbey of Tongerlo, where a mysterious copy of da Vinci's work has been discovered. It is a painting on canvas that could have been commissioned from da Vinci’s workshop by the French King Louis XII. It has perhaps brought the researchers a step closer to the truth. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

North Korea - All the dictator's men | DW Documentary
 
42:26
North Korea is one of the poorest countries in the world, but its leader Kim Jong Un has still found the money he needs to finance a nuclear weapons program, despite the country's fundamental poverty and international economic sanctions. This documentary looks at how, and introduces the men who have helped Kim Jong Un keep his dreams of reaching nuclear power status alive. North Korea has not reined in its nuclear program, despite a number of UN resolutions that have tried to force it to do so. So how has the isolated country kept the program going despite sanctions? Every year Pyongyang sends millions of North Korean workers abroad, selling their services to over 40 countries around the world. And their salaries flow directly into Kim’s treasury. The only ones who know exactly how the system works are the men who have helped the North Korean government carry through the program for years. A film team spent years researching these men and their secrets - from bankers and diplomats to the laborers and specialists who worked abroad and whose wages flowed into the regime's coffers. Come and meet all the dictator’s men. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

St.Helena - a remote island in the Atlantic | (Travel Documentary) DW Documentary
 
25:56
Every third week, a British Royal Mail ship begins its journey from Cape Town to Saint Helena, the remote island in the Atlantic where Napoleon was once in exile. It’s like the end of the world in the middle of the Atlantic. Five days, with a northwesterly course, and only then do the sheer black cliffs appear in front of RMS St. Helena. The island’s 4500 residents are often waiting impatiently for the ship’s arrival and panic if the schedule changes. Director Thomas Denzel and his team went on the journey to Saint Helena and met the people living on the island. Many of the residents are descendants of people who were sent into exile there by the British crown - the most famous among them, the French Emperor Napoleon. This is a report about life at the end of the world, loneliness, unique vegetation, and a very special journey. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

A lack of women in Asia | DW Documentary
 
42:26
Today, Asia is "missing” around 170 million women: 70 million in India, 50 million in China, 20 million in Vietnam, 10 million in Korea. The result of population control policies imposed by the West. The fight for women as tradable commodities takes on a new dimension. With the growing surplus of men, crime rates are rising and threatening the internal stability of these nations. Scientists expect other regions like Africa and the Arab world to follow suit as sex determination technology becomes ubiquitous and affordable. We are facing a humanitarian crisis which some scientists believe may threaten world peace. Zoning in on personal stories from South Korea, China, and India, the film explores the regional and global consequences of this gender imbalance in Asia. With previously unseen archive material and eyewitness reports, the film also looks back at the years after the Second World War and examines the dubious role of international organisations and their influence on worldwide family planning. A revelatory documentary that weaves together elements of politics, economics and medicine, showing women - both then and now - as the plaything of political and criminal interest groups.

The Germans - Charlemagne and the Saxons | DW Documentary
 
42:49
Charlemagne’s empire extended from the North Sea to the Mediterranean and from the Pyrenees to the Danube. He is widely regarded as the "Father of Europe." Many European nations trace their origins to the time of the Carolingian emperor. Charlemagne also laid the foundations for many important developments that took place within the territory that would later become Germany. The boundaries of the Carolingian Empire are similar to those that were formed by Europe’s "Inner Six" 1,200 years later. Those six nations: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands became the founding members of the European Economic Community. Charlemagne, who is believed to have lived between 748 and 814, created more than an empire. He also imposed order and laid the cornerstones for what was to become a common religious and cultural identity. He wanted to rule over all of Roman Christendom and not just the Franks. Faith was one of the things that gave cohesion to his realm. On Christmas Day in the year 800, he became the first western European ruler to be crowned emperor in Rome. The Roman title and the concept of an empire then became attached to the Carolingian dynasty, something that eastern Carolingian and German kings also later laid claim to. Charlemagne created the basis for what would become the German Empire through his conquests in Central Europe. He waged war on the Saxons for thirty years, until he brutally subjugated them and forced them to accept Christianity or die. The inclusion of Saxony shifted the center of the Carolingian Empire east. After Charlemagne's realm split into western and eastern halves a century later, it was none other than the descendants of the heathen Saxons who demonstrated the power, determination and influence to follow in the footsteps of the great emperor. The German tribes elected Otto the Great as the "east Carolingian" king and he went on to be crowned Holy Roman Emperor.

The last Kalinga tattoo artist, Whang Od | DW Documentary
 
26:20
Meet Whang Od. She lives in the Philippines and is the last master of the art of traditional, hand-tapped Filipino tattoos. Whang Od is 93 and her body is adorned with snakes and millipedes. She is the last practitioner of a very special art form – and all she needs for this art form, are charcoal, water, a dash of sugar cane juice for shine, and the thorns of the orange tree, which she uses as needles. She’s highly sought after by young people around the world. The film accompanies Charly and Egan, two brave young men who have travelled to the remote village Buscalan to meet Whang Od. ‘Some wet their pants because they’re so scared,’ says Whang Od and laughs. Even getting to the village she lives in is a challenge: a narrow path leads through the jungle, deep down into a canyon and finally up into the mountains. ‘You can fly to the Moon, but you can’t build a road to Buscalan,’ say the people in Kalinga province, a region more remote and unexplored than any other in the country. Reporter Philipp Abresch took the trek upon himself - with the help of twenty-five porters. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

The Germans - Otto and the empire | DW Documentary
 
42:51
Otto the Great is the progenitor of Germany and German history begins with him. During his reign, the four main tribes on German territory began to unite. Otto is the king who brought the Saxon, Bavarian, Swabian and Franconian tribes to perceive themselves as a community. This documentary examines his role as a unifier. Otto the Great led his men to victory over Hungarian aggressors in the Battle of Lechfeld in 955. Some 12 thousand warriors followed the call to arms their king made near Augsburg. Together they successfully defended "their" country. External threats forged the tribes together. Something like a sense of belonging developed. But Otto had more foes than the Hungarians. Power hungry princes and even his own family made life difficult. Again and again, regional rulers pressured him. Many of the problems Otto the Great faced with the princes were something like those German Chancellor Angela Merkel has in a present-day form with the premiers of Germany's federal states. Yet now it's above all about money rather than life itself. Otto fought wars with nearly every member of his family. His mother and siblings conspired against his rule. The trouble began when Otto's father, Henry I - or Henry the Fowler - broke with tradition by not dividing his kingdom among his sons. Instead, only one - Otto - would become king. Like Charlemagne, Otto wanted to claim the rights of a Roman Emperor. To do that, he had to travel to Italy, crossing the Alps with more than one thousand troops in 961. He was also answering an appeal from Pope John XII, whose sovereignty over Rome was being challenged by a prince. Otto emerged victorious and cemented his reign in Italy. Then on February 2, 962, Otto the Saxon was crowned Holy Roman Emperor. He remained in Italy for more than a decade. Otto the Great and his retinue travelled to Italy as Saxons, Swabians, Franks and Bavarians. They returned home with the Emperor's crown and the name that the Italians had given them. It was a name they would become used to and ultimately apply themselves - the Germans.

The drive along the longest bus route in the world continues through South America. Passing through Rondônia, passengers expect an unforgettable journey through the Amazon basin. But there isn’t much left to see of the jungle – deforestation means the rainforest is shrinking, and with it the indigenous people who call it home. Before the highway passed through their land, the Suri tribe lived here. But outsiders carrying smallpox wiped out nearly the whole population. Those that are left live on a reserve and are fighting to protect the rainforest. The bus hits problems as it continues through Rondônia.

Turning junk heaps into vintage beauties | DW Documentary
 
12:32
Ivan and Zoran are brothers from rural Swabia. They're auto-mechanics with a passion for restoring junked cars as high-priced vintage beauties. They find plenty of dilapidated vehicles on the junkyards of Croatia, their mother's native land. Vintage cars are no longer what they used to be. As time marches on, Fiats and Opels from the 1970s, '80s and '90s obtain antique status. Many of these cars still had unique characters and moving parts under the hood instead of electronic circuit boards. And the market for them is growing. Brothers Ivan and Zoran, car mechanics by trade, have developed a passion for these cars. But Germany's junkyards have little to offer, since most of the cars made from the '70s to the '90s found second and third owners in eastern Europe or even farther afield. So Ivan and Zoran make several trips a year to Croatia, their mother's native country. Their most recent prize is an Opel Kadett. But can they bring it to Germany safe and sound and restore its former glory in time for the next vintage car fair? A report by Almut Röhrl. -------------------------------------------------------------------- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

The Germans - Bismarck and the German Empire | DW Documentary
 
42:28
Prussia's Prime Minister Otto von Bismarck paved the way for the first German nation-state. Bismarck became the Chancellor of the new German Empire. The failure of Germany’s March Revolution (1848/49), a futile attempt by bourgeois liberal forces to restrict the power of Germany’s rulers, unite the German Confederation and establish a constitutional parliament, led to the imposition of "unity from above” as Prussia's Prime Minister Otto von Bismarck paved the way for the first German nation-state. By the mid-19th century, Germans were still not united in one state. The Prussian Prime Minister Otto von Bismarck wanted to change that - not through parliaments or majorities but, as he said, "with blood and iron." At that time, the German Confederation was an alliance of more than 30 independent states, with Austria and Prussia at their head. But when Prussia wanted to incorporate the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein against Austria's will, it became a test of power: Who had the say in Germany? Austria or Prussia? The vote for war or peace took place in Frankfurt am Main, the seat of the German federation, on 14 June 1866. Austria's proposal to mobilize the federation’s forces against Prussia was accepted. Prussia saw the vote as a declaration of war and walked out of the federation. That spelt its end, because the member states were doing exactly what it was set up to prevent, going to war with each other. Austria’s armies were routed, and from now on Germany and Austria went their separate ways. Austria was literally pushed out of German history. Bismarck’s victory over Austria was a triumph worth a monument to the Prussian fatherland: the Victory Column in Berlin. The North German Confederation of 1866 under Prussian leadership was the precursor to the united Germany of a few years later. The south German states such as Bavaria, Baden and Württemberg were initially aloof but that changed with the war against France in 1870. The common enemy united the Germans and their nation. In January 1871, Bismarck declared the birth of the Prussian-German nation-state in the palace of Versailles. For the first time in their history, the Germans were united in a single state with a single capital: Berlin. Bismarck became the Chancellor of the new German Empire. The overall balance of his domestic policies was mixed. On the one hand, they saw the creation of a modern parliamentary system and a welfare state with health, accident and pension insurance. But on the other, Bismarck was pitted against both Social Democracy and the Catholic Church.

The Akha tribe in Laos: Between tradition and modernity | DW Documentary
 
42:06
The Akha in Laos live almost untouched by modern civilization. They still adhere to their archaic customs. But they are on the verge of upheaval. Cut off from the rest of the world, without a paved road, the village of Peryensang Mai has remained almost untouched by modern civilization to this day. Its inhabitants are from the Akha tribe, and they seem to live in a different time: Their language isn’t even written down; their everyday life is defined by the laws and rituals handed down from their ancestors such as animal sacrifices to ward off bad luck. This adherence to customs that are often quite brutal endows the Akha’s lives with stability and direction. The women of the village have a particularly busy life. Because the Akha are largely self-sufficient, their tasks range from agriculture to housework and making traditional clothing. This documentary tells the story of the Laovan family. Mother Yeapheun has always had to work hard to support her large family. Her husband is the village elder and ensures the Akha observe the strict laws and commandments. The couple and their eldest children cannot imagine life beyond the mountaintop, so the family is pinning its hopes on youngest son Kienglom, who has been going to school in a nearby town since he was eleven years old. Like many mountain tribes in Laos, the Akha are facing a difficult choice: between a move down into the valley, which would mean they would have electricity, running water and better medical care - but also abandoning their ancient rituals. The film takes the viewer on an emotional journey of discovery to a tribe torn between tradition and modernity and facing the need to reinvent itself in today's world. -------------------------------------------------------------------- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

The dangerous health business | DW Documentary
 
42:26
More and more people are dying or suffering injury from unsafe medical devices such as prostheses, pacemakers or breast implants. In Germany, such incidents have tripled over the last 10 years, whilst in the USA it’s five times as many. Jürgen Thoma, who needed a new hip in 2005, says "We were the guinea pigs". He was recommended a new product, an "innovation" better than anything on the market so far. But this "innovation" has probably caused massive suffering to hundreds of people. The metal in the prostheses deteriorated due to abrasion and many patients suffered from metal poisoning that ate into their bones. Thomas Woska suffered years of pain until a defective prosthetic disc was removed from his back in a lengthy operation. The prosthesis had disintegrated, distributing fragments of plastic along the channel of his spinal cord. Internal documents from companies and ministries and countless conversations with industry representatives and whistleblowers show that side effects are repeatedly concealed. The authorities usually leave it to the manufacturers to recall defective products or issue safety warnings. Since 2010, this has happened around 1000 times a year, an average of about three times a day, but the authorities seem to have ordered only six recalls during the same period. Often nothing at all is done about defective products. Doctors regularly implant products that have hardly been tested. Internal documents from 2016 show that even the Ministry of Health assumes that only one in ten medical devices with the highest risk levels has been clinically tested, and the public is largely unaware of the risks. By linking compensation payments to obligations of confidentiality, companies prevent patients from talking about their cases. More than 250 journalists from almost 60 different media companies were involved in the worldwide research into medical products under the title "The Implant Files," including the BBC, Le Monde and representatives from Japan, Pakistan, Mexico, Tunisia and many European countries. -------------------------------------------------------------------- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Making cheese in the Alps - a story of integration | DW Documentary
 
25:56
A cheese making business in the Alps is the project of Ethiopian entrepreneur, Agitu Ideo Gudeta. Forced to flee Ethiopia, she has built a new life in Italy. A political activist forced to flee Ethiopia has built a new life for herself in northern Italy, where she’s founded a successful business producing and selling goat’s cheese. The move has helped increase numbers among an increasingly rare breed of the animals, which are allowed to graze on abandoned communal pastures. Agitu Ideo Gudeta had to leave her homeland eight years ago after getting involved in protests against land grabs by international corporations. Arriving in Europe, the trained sociologist had to start again from scratch - and set out to found a business in the alpine Trento region. At the ‘La Capra Felice’ or ‘The Happy Goat’, she only uses milk from Pezzata Mochena goats, a local indigenous breed whose numbers have declined dramatically in the last few years. Starting with a herd of just 15 goats, Gudeta now has 180, and her firm has attracted media attention at both the national and international levels. Young people from all over the region are flocking to her dairy farm to learn how to make her popular cheese. The documentary tells the story of a brave entrepreneur with a smart approach who has managed to turn her concept into a success story. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

From Rio to Lima – Transoceânica, the world's longest bus journey (5/5) | DW Documentary
 
42:32
In the final installment of Transoceânica, the bus goes from the Andes to the Peruvian coastal desert and then on to the capital Lima. In Peru, roughly three times as many people, per capita, are killed on the roads as in Germany or France. Dangerous places in the Andes are often given names such as "Death Bend" or "Jinxed Bend”, marking the spot where people have died. On the high plateau of the Andes, we find vicuñas, a type of lama, which produce the most expensive wool in the world. However, a parasite has recently decimated vicuña stocks, attacking the animals’ skin, leaving them unable to cope with the cold and rain. The western slopes of the Andes are dusty and dry. These mark the start of the Peruvian coastal desert, where the Nazca culture developed over 2,000 years ago. All that remains now are the famous Nazca Lines, enormous geoglyphs etched into the hard floor of the desert. The road then turns north along the Pacific coast, where there are numerous fishing villages. One of them is Pisco, where the local fishing trade has been badly hit by the El Niño weather phenomenon. And then finally, after 144 hours and 6,300 kilometers on the bus, we arrive in Lima - just two days late.

The insect apocalypse | DW Documentary
 
42:26
The world’s insect population has declined by three quarters in the last 30 years and many species have become extinct. And it's all man's fault. This documentary looks at the dramatic consequences of this hitherto unrecognized catastrophe. The results of long-term monitoring published in 2017 have confirmed that as much as 75 percent of the world’s insect population has disappeared in the last 30 years. The extent of species extinction is so vast that many researchers fear that it will knock the entire natural cycle of life out of balance. Not only the decline of the bee population but mass insect mortality as a whole will have devastating consequences for all the Earth’s inhabitants. Top scientists from around the globe are warning that the developments are much more widespread and serious than anyone had realized. Many animals feed on insects. Insects also help to convert dead tissue into nutrient-rich soil. In addition, they even regulate each other. Species that humans see as pests are often the preferred prey of useful predators. But massive human intervention has thrown the functioning balance in the insect world out of whack. Chemical poisons, the progressive sealing of soils and the widespread use of fertilizers are affecting the world's most species-rich animal class. This documentary looks at current studies and explains what is going wrong and where urgent action is needed. There's still some hope: although many species have been irrevocably lost, mass extinction in the insect kingdom could still be stopped - but only if humans finally begin to act against it. And we're running out of time. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines. Watch high-class documentaries from German broadcasters and international production companies.

From Rio to Lima – Transoceânica, the world's longest bus journey (4/5) | DW Documentary
 
42:32
From the Amazon to the Andes and all the way up to Machu Picchu, the bus continues its journey through South America on the Transoceânica highway. The mountains mark the most difficult stage of the trip for both drivers and passengers. But the passengers have a large part of the journey behind them now and it won’t be long until they reach Peru. They have crossed Brazil and driven through the Peruvian Amazon basin to the Andes. Here, the endless greenery of the basin gives way to increasingly steep rock faces. The Incas worshipped these mighty mountains as deities and called them Apus - Gods. The road takes us close to one of them: Apu Ausangate, which is 6,384 meters high. The temperature here is much lower than in the Amazon basin. The bus soon reaches Cuzco. For centuries the town was the center of the Inca Empire, until the Spaniards came and burnt it to the ground and built their own palaces on its walls. Today, the city is mainly one thing: a tourist magnet, and the starting point for tours to the legendary ruins of Machu Picchu. The complex is crumbling under the tread of millions of visitors from all over the world, and now the authorities are facing a dilemma: on the one hand, the tourists bring money; on the other the archaeologists want to preserve Machu Picchu for generations to come.

From Brazil to Peru via the Andes, the bus crosses its first international border as it continues its trip through the Amazon of South America. This section of the Transoceânica highway is known as the “Gold Road”, where fortune hunters and adventurers illegally pan for gold. A raid on illegal gold prospectors is underway. The Peruvian government estimates that 20,000 people are panning for gold here - illegally. At the end of May 2016, most of the region of Madre de Dios was declared an emergency area after mercury used in gold extraction threatened to poison 50,000 people. Every few months, raids are carried out - but with limited success. The panhandlers return to their sites soon after the police have left. During the raids, the prospectors sometimes block the highway for days. But the Transoceânica bus passes through this region without incident.

The Germans - Frederick and the empress | DW Documentary
 
42:30
After the Thirty Years' War, there was a dramatic rivalry between the Prussian King Frederick II and the ruler of the House of Habsburg Maria Theresa. The path to German nationhood was riven with conflict. After the Thirty Years' War, the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation resembled a territorial patchwork, an obstacle to any national development along Western European lines. The lack of a central power meant new powers emerged on the periphery. In particular, the rise of Brandenburg-Prussia changed the power structures in the Reich forever. Two nations in particular struggled for domination over the German Empire, which was fragmented into smaller principalities and monarchies. Austria was already a great power under the Habsburgs, Prussia wanted to become one. There was a power struggle between the vivacious Habsburg Maria Theresa from Catholic Vienna and the reserved Hohenzollern king Frederick II from Protestant Potsdam, also known as Frederick the Great. The two rulers never met in person. Both wanted to be absolute autocrats, but not despots. And both believed it was their first duty to serve their own state and that the interests of the Holy Roman Empire were of secondary importance. The conflict between the two powers culminated in the Seven Years' War, which brought great devastation to Germany. Only the Peace of Hubertusburg in 1763 ended the fierce struggle for supremacy in the empire, which neither side could ultimately win. Both rulers encouraged cultural prosperity and diversity. Johann Sebastian Bach composed music for Frederick the Great, and the rulers of the many small territories were patrons of architects, poets, painters and musicians. It was the time of the rising romantic "Sturm und Drang" movement, and Lessing, Goethe and Schiller were writing their timeless works. The "dualism" of the two powers - embodied in the rulers Frederick II and Maria Theresa - finally brought about the end of the old empire and determined the course of German history until the middle of the 19th century.

How the rich get richer – money in the world economy | DW Documentary
 
42:25
Exploding real estate prices, zero interest rate and a rising stock market – the rich are getting richer. What danger lies in wait for average citizens? For years, the world’s central banks have been pursuing a policy of cheap money. The first and foremost is the ECB (European Central Bank), which buys bad stocks and bonds to save banks, tries to fuel economic growth and props up states that are in debt. But what relieves state budgets to the tune of hundreds of billions annoys savers: interest rates are close to zero. The fiscal policies of the central banks are causing an uncontrolled global deluge of money. Experts are warning of new bubbles. In real estate, for example: it’s not just in German cities that prices are shooting up. In London, a one-bed apartment can easily cost more than a million Euro. More and more money is moving away from the real economy and into the speculative field. Highly complex financial bets are taking place in the global casino - gambling without checks and balances. The winners are set from the start: in Germany and around the world, the rich just get richer. Professor Max Otte says: "This flood of money has caused a dangerous redistribution. Those who have, get more." But with low interest rates, any money in savings accounts just melts away. Those with debts can be happy. But big companies that want to swallow up others are also happy: they can borrow cheap money for their acquisitions. Coupled with the liberalization of the financial markets, money deals have become detached from the real economy. But it’s not just the banks that need a constant source of new, cheap money today. So do states. They need it to keep a grip on their mountains of debt. It’s a kind of snowball system. What happens to our money? Is a new crisis looming? The film 'The Money Deluge' casts a new and surprising light on our money in these times of zero interest rates. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Thailand’s capital city, Bangkok, is unique. This film reveals the best spots: well-known locations, and places off the beaten track. Our report provides a detailed guide to Asia’s most exciting city. For transportation, visitors and local residents alike can choose from motorized rickshaws, taxis, subways, or the sky train. There are also express boats that ply the Chao Phraya River -- plus long-tail boats, and vessels that make their way through the city's khlongs, or canals. This journey of discovery takes us to the places where Bangkok residents go to rest and relax -- like the island of Ko Samet in the Gulf of Thailand. This is the capital's version of Wannsee Lake in Berlin. You can book a river cruise, or visit one of the trendy open-air bars perched atop high-rise buildings. A lot of younger Bangkok residents have taken up a bold challenge in this car-friendly city: they've switched to bicycles. Many locals enjoy making a bike visit to the village-like central district, near a big bend in the river -- even when the temperature rises above 30-degrees centigrade. On the islands off the coast, there's plenty of sunshine, beautiful beaches, and clear, warm water -- a mix that attracts crowds of Bangkok residents on weekends. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

Soldiers, firefighters and volunteers are helping in the most affected areas. Austria is used to dealing with large amounts of snow, but this year the country has received far more than usual. Meter-high piles cover the rooftops and rising temperatures are leading to rising fears that roofs could collapse. In the village of Altaussee in Styria, residents whose homes lay below the Loser Mountain were evacuated due to the risk of an avalanche. Meanwhile, in Saalfelden in the state of Salzburg, the Austrian army’s helicopter unit has been taking to the air to pinpoint unstable snowpack that could trigger avalanches. On January 12, a group of skiers was killed in an avalanche near the Alpine resort of Lech, after using a trail that was closed due to unsafe conditions. Still, at ski resorts like Saalbach-Hinterglemm, the mood is upbeat. Here the snow is good for business and a source of pleasure for holidaymakers.

Flight MH370: Five years of uncertainty | DW Documentary
 
12:32
Five years ago flight MH370, bound for Beijing, disappeared from radar screens. To this day no one knows what happened to the plane or where its wreckage is to be found. Jiang Hui's mother was on board. He's fighting for the investigation to resume. Jiang Hui's mother had been on holiday with a friend in Malaysia and boarded a plane to fly home to Beijing on March 8, 2014. But she never arrived. What happened to her flight, MH370, is one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history. No one knows what happened on board: Was there a hijacking, an accident or did a crew member commit suicide? The wreckage of the plane has never been found either. The search has now been called off, but Jiang Hu refuses to accept that. He wants to know what happened to his mother. He and his fellow campaigners accuse the Malaysian authorities of a lack of transparency and tact. Jiang Hui says he can live with whatever scenario brought the plane down; he just wants to know what really happened.

The Germans - Barbarossa and the lion | DW Documentary
 
42:49
In the Middle Ages, Friedrich I, also called "Barbarossa", was regarded as a brilliant ruler who fought for the "honor of the empire." The fate of the Hohenstaufen dynasty mirrored the rise and fall of the medieval Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. Frederick I reigned from 1152 until his death in 1190. "Barbarossa", as he was called, was considered by his contemporaries to be a beacon of power and virtue. This documentary explores his reign. Frederick I’s absolute commitment to his role as a defender of western Christianity divided his attention between German and international interests. At the same time, he came into conflict with the Pope. The city states of northern Italy likewise challenged the sovereignty of the German ruler. As he struggled to impose his will on Italy, back in Germany regional leaders gained strength at his expense. Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony and Bavaria, was Barbarossa's cousin, loyal vassal - and sometimes his foe. Henry was known for ruthlessly expanding his territory. He conquered new territories to the east for the empire, and pursued a planned policy of settlement and Christianization. Like Barbarossa, "the Lion" also made a name for himself as a founder of cities. When the duke refused to swear allegiance to the emperor, he was banished. Barbarossa's rule coincided with the crusades and the great age of chivalry. The cities became more independent. A new middle class emerged, as did craftsmen's guilds and merchant networks. The modern German language evolved, together with chivalric prose and poetry. Local rulers continued to defend their independence. They elected the king, and effectively ruled under him. Things would stay that way until the end of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation in 1806. And as for Barbarossa himself - the emperor drowned soon after departing on a crusade to Jerusalem.

Gold! Bangkok's treasure hunters | DW Documentary
 
12:02
In Bangkok, divers hunt for treasure that's lain on the riverbed of the Chao Phraya for centuries. For generations, families living along Bangkok's Chao Phraya river have been diving for the more-or-less valuable treasures found on the riverbed. It's their livelihood and their huts lie right on the riverbank. Mana Onsgaard is a treasure diver. He plunges 20 meters down to the bed of Bangkok's Chao Phraya river, looking for valuables that have been there for centuries. But digging around in the muddy riverbed can be dangerous. Divers must wear gloves to avoid cuts and losing their fingernails, which become soft from being immersed in water for so long. Their finds include old teak wood, various metals, ropes, ceramics and old glass bottles -- anything they can sell for cash. Sometimes they even search for cameras or cell phones that tourists have let fall into the river. Depending on their luck, some divers earn up to 500 euros a month -- just enough to feed a family. But soon treasure diving could be a thing of the past on the Chao Phraya, as the city wants to put a stop to the practice. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Inequality - how wealth becomes power (1/3) | (Poverty Richness Documentary) DW Documentary
 
41:51
Germany is one of the world’s richest countries, but inequality is on the rise. The wealthy are pulling ahead, while the poor are falling behind. For the middle classes, work is no longer a means of advancement. Instead, they are struggling to maintain their position and status. Young people today have less disposable income than previous generations. This documentary explores the question of inequality in Germany, providing both background analysis and statistics. The filmmakers interview leading researchers and experts on the topic. And they accompany Christoph Gröner, one of Germany’s biggest real estate developers, as he goes about his work. "If you have great wealth, you can’t fritter it away through consumption. If you throw money out the window, it comes back in through the front door,” Gröner says. The real estate developer builds multi-family residential units in cities across Germany, sells condominium apartments, and is involved in planning projects that span entire districts. "Entrepreneurs are more powerful than politicians, because we’re more independent,” Gröner concludes. Leading researchers and experts on the topic of inequality also weigh in, including Nobel-prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, economist Thomas Piketty, and Brooke Harrington, who carried out extensive field research among investors from the ranks of the international financial elite. Branko Milanović, a former lead economist at the World Bank, says that globalization is playing a role in rising inequality. The losers of globalization are the lower-middle class of affluent countries like Germany. "These people are earning the same today as 20 years ago," Milanović notes. "Just like a century ago, humankind is standing at a crossroads. Will affluent countries allow rising equality to tear apart the fabric of society? Or will they resist this trend?” _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines. Watch high-class documentaries from German broadcasters and international production companies.

A Turkmen wedding in Iran | DW Documentary
 
42:26
For the ethnic Turkmen of northeastern Iran, a wedding is the event of a lifetime: A flamboyant affair complete with centuries-old customs that bring to life the rich traditions of these once nomadic tribes. Anyone who has ever attended a traditional Turkmen wedding will never forget the experience. But it’s rare for outsiders to be invited to the celebrations, and get a glimpse of their fascinating customs and traditions. This report accompanies a young couple on their big day. In fact, the celebrations for Mahym Mirzaali and Karim Gorganlidavaji extend over several days and play host to thousands of guests. The Gorganlidavaji family spared no expense and effort in staging the marriage of their only son. But the ceremonies, wrestling matches, costumes, jewelry and music are not just a private pleasure, they are also a way of preserving their age-old nomadic heritage in multi-ethnic Iran. Even if the Turkmens have adopted a more settled lifestyle since the beginning of the 20th Century, they are determined to preserve their cultural identity. From the 10th Century on, Turkmen tribes spread across Central Asia. Today they are at home in the countries located between the Caspian Sea in the west, and the foothills of the Himalayas in the east. About half the Turkmen population of twelve million lives in the young republic of Turkmenistan, another two million are settled in Iran. They share a common history, language and traditions that unite them across many borders. -------------------------------------------------------------------- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Yemen and the global arms trade | DW Documentary (Arms documentary)
 
26:31
Weapons manufactured in the West and exported to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have ended up in the hands of Yemeni militia. This is directly in contravention of international law and arms trade treaties. A documentary by the independent journalist network Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) reveals the shocking details. Egyptian journalist Mohamed Aboelgheit spent a year tracing and documenting the origin of weapons that have ended up in the hands of armed groups fighting in Yemen’s civil war. The countries of origin include Germany, the US, the UK, Austria, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Serbia, Bulgaria and others. Yet according to international treaties, these arms should never have reached Yemeni militia groups. Aboelgheit created social media accounts using false Yemeni names to get access to the informal trading networks and groups. In some cases the sellers were at pains to emphasize that the weapons were brand new and had never been fired. The documentary airs weighty evidence to show that Gulf states have been passing arms sold to their military on to other parties in Yemen - for political reasons. This is clearly in breach of "end user” certification laws intended to ensure that exported arms are not passed on to third parties. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

How cash is becoming a thing of the past | DW Documentary (Banking documentary)
 
42:26
Cashless payments are on the rise. They are fast, easy and convenient. Worldwide, cashless transactions have become the norm. But Germany’s central bank and government are still clinging on to cash. Can they stop the move towards a cashless society? Our documentary shows who is behind the worldwide anti-cash lobby. Banks want to get rid of coins and bills for cost reasons, and politicians think less cash will cut the rug out from under criminals and terrorists. Central bankers want to abolish cash because it would make it easier for them to enforce negative interest rates. And digital payment companies like Paypal or Visa simply want to profit from money transactions and collect as much financial data about consumers as they can. Their aim is to gain complete control over our buying behavior. For example, the "Better than Cash Alliance" in New York is supported by financial corporations such as Visa or Mastercard. They say the more people that are integrated into the international financial system, the more growth and jobs it will promote. But as our financial behavior becomes more and more transparent, states are also using payment data to find out more about us. The ordinary citizen’s view of cash as a store of value, independent of third party interests, is being increasingly ignored. But for them, cash is and will remain a symbol of freedom. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Architecture, art and design - 100 years of the Bauhaus (1/3) | DW Documentary
 
42:26
How has the Bauhaus school of architecture and design, Germany’s best-known art school, shaped the world we live in today? bauhausWORLD - The Effect (2/3): https://youtu.be/LW1415Ddf8c bauhausWORLD - The Utopia (3/3): Online on January 27, 2019 The three-part documentary bauhausWORLD marks the 100th anniversary of the opening of Germany’s best-known art, architecture and design school, the Bauhaus. Exploring the legacy of this iconic German institution, our film crew traveled the world, meeting architects, artists, urban planners, doers and dreamers. Do the Bauhaus’s social ideals and design principles still shape how we live today? New approaches to education and training, architecture, painting, dance and design were explored and developed at the Bauhaus. Its founder and director Walter Gropius attracted the leading creative figures of the era, including Hannes Meyer, Mies van der Rohe, Lyonel Feininger, Oskar Schlemmer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, Anni Albers, Josef Albers and Gunta Stölzl. Today, Bauhaus is considered the birthplace of Modernism and has become a byword for sleek, functional design. Founded in Weimar in 1919, the Bauhaus school moved to Dessau in 1925 and then to Berlin, where it was forced to shut in 1933 after Hitler seized power. Most of its artists, architects and visionaries emigrated, fanning out and spreading the Bauhaus doctrine around the world. Filmmaker Lydia Ranke and her team traveled the world to make the three-part documentary bauhausWORLD. Alongside the Bauhaus sites of Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, they visited cities such as Tokyo, Amman, Tel Aviv, New York, Chicago, Mexico City and Medellín, talking to experts from architects Norman Foster and Tatiana Bilbao to architecture critic Mark Wigley, furniture designer Yinka Ilori and fashion designer Kasia Kucharska. "The Code" is the first part of bauhausWORLD. The search for the secret of Bauhaus’s enduring success leads all the way to Japan - a journey illustrating how the forced closure of the school that drove the movement into exile served to spread its philosophy around the world. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Clandestine employment of Indians in Italy | DW Documentary (Migrant documentary)

In Italy, thousands of Indians are employed as cheap labor in the agriculture sector. It’s an exploitative system that includes human smuggling. The working conditions are inhumane. But they enable cheap vegetables in supermarkets. Some 30,000 people originally from India live in the province of Latina. Many do not have papers. Most work in one of the 10,000 local companies that produce wheat, fruit and wine. The conditions are often terrible, with working days lasting 14 hours - for three euros an hour. Many of the recruiters are themselves from India and they’ve developed a human trafficking scheme to bring more workers from India. They exploit the fact that many Indians are hoping to escape poverty at home.

Solar energy in Morocco | DW Documentary (Renewable energy documentary)

Solar energy in Morocco is transforming the renewable energy scene. One of the world’s biggest solar power plants is situated in Morocco. Jaouad Ait Rebah changes a lot of people’s lives in the High Atlas Mountains - by bringing light where there is darkness. The Moroccan entrepreneur installs solar panels in the area’s picturesque, but remote villages. For the high-altitude residents, the difference is like that of night and day. The beautiful scenery is mostly lost on those living there. They live in extreme poverty. Many young people have left due to the lack of jobs. Now, however, the solar panels are modernizing the villages. Jaouad Ait Rebah and his work symbolize the energy revolution that has been sweeping across Morocco in recent years. The country is leading the change to renewables in Africa, as is evident in Jaouad’s native Ouarzazate. The city is home to one of the biggest solar power plants in the world, comprising almost one million parabolic mirrors. King Mohammed VI. is investing $9 billion in the facility, which provides electricity to two million people. By 2040, Morocco aims to generate almost half of its power from renewable energy sources. Our team accompanied Jaouad Ait Rebah as he went about his challenging and laborious work, marveling at the scale of the enormous solar facilities, and asks to what degree King Mohammed VI.’s ambitious projects are actually trickling down to the little people. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Archeology - exploring the past with modern technology | DW History Documentary
 
42:26
Today modern archaeology often works with digital technology. Geophysics has allowed thousands of ancient sites to be located - a huge gain for science. The dig is no longer the be-all and end-all of archeology. We accompany some archeologists on their journey into the virtual past. Geophysics comprises a range of techniques with various geological and military functions. Geomagnetism is used to locate enemy submarines or potential reserves of oil or other minerals. Now, German and Irish archeologists have teamed up to use it to trace prehistoric grave systems. Researchers in western Germany are applying it to locate ancient procession and pilgrimage routes. Shipping archeologists in Bremerhaven are availing of digital technology to create virtual models of shipwrecks and, in Berlin, archeologists and game designers have also embarked on a joint project. As luck would have it, they scanned every millimeter of a temple in the Syrian city of Aleppo, not suspecting that, soon afterwards, the complex would be largely destroyed in the country’s civil war. Their virtual model is evidence that the study of the past can have uses for the present, just as technologies of the present can help us to study the past. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

And that's what visitors do, despite tightened security since the terrorist attack in Berlin two years ago. Concrete bollards, barriers and large water containers are meant to provide security. There are more police patrolling the streets than in the past. It's a new normality, and many people still have to get used to it.

Traveling Ecuador by train | DW Travel Documentary
 
42:26
The train line through Ecuador is considered one of the most spectacular train lines in South America. A train journey of discovery. The Trans-Andean railroad takes in the infamous Nariz del Diablo, or Devil’s Nose, a mountain with almost perpendicular walls. To overcome this obstacle, the train zigzags to ascend 500 meters in less than 12 kilometers. With steep ascents and descents, it’s no ride for the faint-hearted! The main line along the country’s Andean spine links the coastal city of Guayaquil with the capital Quito. It was finished in 1908, but was mostly shut down after a series of weather-related disasters destroyed much of the Ecuadorian rail network in the 1990s. After extensive restoration, a new cross-Andean service was opened in 2013, following the original narrow-gauge line. It’s 450 kilometers long and runs from the Pacific coast up to the Andean highlands. On its cross-country journey, the train is accompanied by guards on motorcycles who, in the absence of railway gates, stop traffic at every level crossing along the way to let the train pass. The Tren Crucero, - or "cruise train"- is the centerpiece of Ecuador’s rejuvenated railway. A revamped luxury steam train, it runs once a fortnight and has room for 54 passengers. The most exhilarating stretch of the ride begins deep down in the gorge of the River Chanchán. The train zigzags up the Nariz del Diablo - the "Devil's Nose" - in a series of dizzying switchbacks in which the tracks almost seem to lie on top of each other. Join the reporters for the ride of a lifetime, as the train journeys on to Urbina, the highest station at 3,609 meters above sea level, and along the so-called Avenue of Volcanoes, to the Cotopaxi National Park and onwards to Quito, the world's highest capital. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

People smuggling in Germany - a multibillion dollar business | DW Documentary
 
28:28
People smugglers help tens of thousands of illegal migrants enter Europe each year with fraudulently obtained tourist or study visas. Their methods are becoming more and more refined. In one instance, migrants were charged 8,000 euros per person to come to Germany on fraudulently obtained tourist visas. The head of the people smuggling ring - run by a family with Syrian and Polish roots - has now been arrested. But another gang in the eastern German state of Saxony is still running an operation that exploits a legal loophole. The people smugglers - in this case with German and Indian roots - organize sham marriages between Romanian or Czech women and Indian or Pakistani men. The men pay 20,000 euros to enter the EU. Police in Germany have managed to break up a number of people smuggling rings in recent years, but new structures quickly spring up again. The smugglers work internationally. Cross-border cooperation between law enforcement agencies is essential if authorities are to have any chance of combatting the problem. The United Nations estimate that smuggling migrants generates profits of some seven billion dollars a year. ___________________________________________________ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Women take the reins in Kyrgyz villages | DW Documentary
 
11:56
Airkairenza Kushtarbek and her four children live in rural Kyrgyzstan. But her husband works in Russia - some 3,000 kilometers away, like many men from Kyrgyzstan who are fleeing poverty in their own country. The men only rarely return from Russia to visit their families in Kyrgyzstan, and their children effectively grow up fatherless. Their wives are left to fend for themselves, which often makes them more self-reliant than their husbands would like. It's having an impact on Kyrgyz society, where tradition still plays an important role. The 800,000 men from Kyrgyzstan working in Russia transfer the equivalent of more than two billion euros to their families annually. Airkairenza Kushtarbek also depends on those remittances from her husband. She's is already looking forward to the New Year, when he plans to visit for a few days. ------------------------- Subscribe to DW Documentary: https://www.youtube.com/dwdocumentary?sub_confirmation=1 For more information visit: http://www.dw.com/en/tv/docfilm/s-3610 Instagram https://www.instagram.com/dwdocumentary/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dw.stories DW netiquette policy: http://www.dw.com/en/dws-netiquette-policy/a-5300954

Avocado - a positive superfood trend? | DW Documentary
 
28:26
From avocado toast to guacamole, this superfood has stolen the hearts of foodies and the health conscious around the world. But where do avocados come from? Avocados have become a huge food trend in the Western world, where the creamy fruit has become readily available in shops, cafes and restaurants. The avocado is considered a superfood and is popular in Europe because of its nutritional value. Avocados are high in calories, contain mostly monounsaturated fat and are good for cholesterol. The fruit is full of essential nutrients, including potassium and vitamin C. But there's a darker side to the fashionable fruit popular on toast or in salads. In Chile, one of the world's largest suppliers, avocado cultivation has dramatic consequences and has been linked to water shortages, human rights violations and an environmentally damage. The province of Petorca has a long tradition of avocado farming. Once grown by small farmers, production has been soaring since the global avocado boom of the 1990s. Big landowners now dominate the avocado market there. And their business requires large amounts of water. It takes up to 1000 liters of water to grow one kilo of the fruit (about three avocados) - a lot more than for a kilo of tomatoes or potatoes. The region is suffering an acute water shortage, exacerbated by climate change. The riverbeds dried up years ago. Trucks bring tanks of water to families in need, while thousands of hectares of avocado groves just next door are watered with artificial reservoirs. Rodrigo Mundaca founded the NGO Modatima. He fights for the right to water - a right that’s guaranteed by the UN and that Chile has committed to. An aerial survey in 2012 revealed that 64 pipelines were diverting river water underground, apparently to irrigate the avocado fields. When the Modatima activists publicly voiced their criticism, they received death threats. Water became a commodity in Chile in 1981 under the Pinochet dictatorship, meaning it’s privatized. Those who offer the most money get water licenses, even for life, regardless of the potential consequences for the ecosystem. The avocado also has a pretty dire environmental footprint. They’re packaged to prevent damage and transported in air-conditioned cargo ships to Europe. The fruit then ripens in a factory in Rotterdam, before it’s sent "ready to eat” to German supermarkets. "Europe wants to eat healthily - at our expense,” says Mundaca. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.
