Anne-Sophie Mutter On Tour (#602)
Graffiti sprayer turned artist Christian Awe, new material from Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, trends for 2010, an igloo village in Finland and finally, believe it or not, whisky from England.
Artist Christian Awe: Christian Awe started his artistic career as a graffiti spraypainter. He's now off the streets but still keeps up the spraypainting, working in his loft in the Lichtenberg district of Berlin. Awe has sold his works around the world. We met him in Berlin and visited an exhibition of his art at the Berliner Galerie.
Anne-Sophie Mutter Plays Brahms: The famous German violinist has a new DVD with interpretations of classics by Brahms. We talk to Mutter ahead of a world tour which kicks off in London in March.
Trends 2010: Experts say the trends awaiting us in 2010 will have to do with exclusivity and extravagance. But the rustic trend in fashion expressed in Karl Lagerfeld's latest Chanel collection will also continue. Green architecture will also be on the rise.
Igloo Village in Finland: We travel to Saariselka, Finland, to check out the igloo homes there. Despite the freezing temperatures, this village is very popular with tourists. Sleeping in glass igloos is a big hit as it may allow you to see the Northern Lights as you fall asleep.
English Whisky: Andrew Nelstrop and his family from Norfolk, England, used to have their whisky made in Scotland. They then decided to have it done all at home and opened up St. George's Distillery in 2005. After the first whisky had aged for three years it was launched on the market in 2008. The English Whisky Company is the only registered whisky distilling company in England. [26 minutes]
