Extreme Sport: Climbing Offwidth (#1027)

"Wideboyz" Climbing Offwidth - Tom Randall and Pete Whitetaker from Sheffield are stars of the international crack climbing scene. Calling themselves "Wideboyz," they regularly set new records in the extreme sports discipline "offwidth." Their new film "Wideboyz II" has just been released.

Wild Gardens - Germans love their gardens and lean a bit towards the cliche of immaculate lawns and orderly flower beds. But naturalist gardens with wild flowers and grasses are becoming increasingly popular. Their motto is: natural chaos over stylish perfection.

Cooking for Sucess: Holger Stromberg - As the chef for the German national football team, Holger Stromberg knows how food can affect athletes' performances. The star chef and cookery writer, who has been on the coaching staff of the DFB since 2007, is currently with the German team in Brazil.

Designer Furniture from the Printer - The Dutchman Dirk Vander Kooij is one of the pioneers of 3D printed furniture. He has repurposed an old industrial robot to create large pieces of furniture from recycled plastics. The 28-year-old Dutchman's creations have won numerous awards and even come to the notice of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Art Basel: Life Performance - The live art project "14 Rooms" displays 14 works by 14 international artists such as Damien Hirst and Marina Abramovic. Around 100 performers will become living art works as a highlight of this year's Art Basel, the world's largest contemporary art fair. [26 minutes] TV-G Closed Captioning
