Moritz Eisner and Bibi Fellner use all means at their disposal and move forward step by step. What happened? And who is the dead man? Was it a premeditated murder, or did something completely different go tragically wrong? Little by little, Bibi and Moritz find out that the case involves an assault on a security guard working for the Dokta, a big time criminal of many years' standing in Vienna. So there was probably a lot of money involved, too. Moritz and Bibi are not alone in wondering this - so is the victim of the theft, who is bent on revenge. This quiz show concept in which two candidates compete with each other in a completely new way and which incorporates people from the studio audience as temporary players, marks a true innovation in terms of layout and game system and additionally merges aspects of a quiz show and an entertainment show with entertaining personalities and musical elements.

European migrant crisis
While the cold holds Austria hostage and everyone has a runny nose, ice bath enthusiasts celebrate their peak season. Studies have shown that people regularly exposed to cold environments have a better blood flow and are healthier. Newton has tested this method with two volunteers to check if we really should embrace the cold. We long believed they were mute and deaf. But it turns out tortoises can speak!
In a fragmented yet refined manner: at low frequencies to be able to communicate across great distances in deep waters. At high frequencies in shallow waters to locate each other. But that's not it: even their embryos 'speak' to each other and agree on when to hatch out of their eggs. Newton offers a fascinating peak into the most recent research on tortoises, dives right into their language and shatters some of the prejudice we hold against them.
Because tortoises are talkative, fast and, above all, sociable! Reaching cult status up to this day, particularly among young people, Frankl - Viennese Jew, neurologist and philosopher - survived four Nazi concentration camps. He has made history as a great conciliator. He is renowned world-wide for his famous book "Man's Search for Meaning", which he wrote while being imprisoned in a death camp.
The logotherapy which he established is applied everywhere from Japan to the United States.

This format shows what citizens really know about their parties and the political programs and systems the top candidates stand for. The Professor. Adelgunde, Contemporary History professor at the University of Vienna, is a passionate academic and aims to launch a new Institute of European Social History.
The young Russian Historian Jekatarina comes to Vienna to study- or so it seems. She wants to write her doctoral thesis on the reconstruction in the Russian occupation zones and Adelgunde is her supervisor. But Jekatarina has other motives to get to know Adelgunde. Adelgund's father worked in oil fields in Lower Austria during the Russian occupation. One day, he was taken prisoner in Siberia under suspicion of sabotage, and his family was only informed of his death years later. What Adelgunde, her mother and younger sister Heidrun aren't aware of, is that he founded a new family in the camp.

Schiele's short but spectacular rise to the highest peaks of Art's Mount Olympus ended abruptly in a seemingly meaningless death, but his spirit lived on though his worldwide adoration and canonisation.
Egon Schiele's short and enigmatic life and his undecipherable art still to this day, a century after he took his last breath, inspire myths around his unapproachable and dubious character. This film documentary does not focus solely on the artist's biography but rather on the tense correlation between his uncompromising, unconditional artistic talent and its radical opponent: society's moral code of conduct. Herbert Brandl doesn't care much about reaching the mountain tops. He prefers the shadows, the dark forests and abysses. Cultured, educated and inspiring, he is full of surprises.

Christmas time is the best season for cakes and biscuits in Europe. Anita Leckenberger goes on a quest to uncover the secrets of baking traditions. Humans are, in theory, able to live up to years. We often complain about the burden of ageing population. But, as proven by several cases in Denmark and Norway, the new elderly live and stay healthy longer than previous generations if they retire later instead of being cast aside. Supportive social systems grant them higher pensions than previous generations.
How do today's pensioners spend their days? They join new housing projects, local projects and various clubs; they travel, exercise, play music or go back to University. Some are still working professionals at 70 thanks to tailored part-time contracts. Our well-being is based on highly developed networks and all components have one thing in common: in order to function, they need electricity.
We have become used to having access to electricity whenever and wherever we need it. Yet experts have recently pointed out the potential threats to our networks. Energy transition, increasing usage, bad weather and the liberalised energy market push it further and further to the limits of its capacities.
On top of this, there is the existing danger of a certain manipulation such as terrorist or cyber-attacks.
The list of systems which would also work without electricity is very short. Electricity is the lifeline for countless crucial infrastructures: communication, transport, food, healthcare, security, finance and production would be greatly affected. Peppo Wagner asks leading, international experts, which factors our electrical networks are vulnerable to, what the risks actually comprise and which solutions could be imagined.
Three brothers, Markus, Johann and Philipp Kreisel have found a battery system which can help electric cars dominate the international market. They promise batteries, which charge faster and last longer than those currently being distributed. The electromobile revolution has begun. Will its competitive advantage be maintained across the world?
The Syrian capital, with a centuries-old tradition, a true cultural and religious center of the Orient, torn by the civil war, now largely under the control of Assad. The secret capital of South Africa, home town of Nelson Mandela, is portrayed.

The Indian government is all geared up for growth. In the next 20 years, over Million people will move from the countryside and settle into towns. This will lead to an enormous new market. The government had initially announced the future constructions of new megapolises. But the project has become even more ambitious. Energy sources shall be renewable and traffic jams shall belong in the past once transport systems become remote-controlled and the inhabitants' safety will be ensured by a forward-thinking surveillance system.
But all the farmers currently cultivating these lands are turning their backs to the government's proposal and rejecting the rural exodus which is expected of them. The first holiday goers were rich. Very rich. And they chose to take the prestigious southern train to luxurious weekends by the Adriatic Sea. Even the Emperor's family used to take it. Its renovation is under way to bring it back to its former glory. Northern Italy's rivers carry both goods and memories. Its picturesque landscape still bears marks of its History as part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the entire lagoon-city which is Venice is a constant physical reminder of what these rivers are capable of.
Field Marshall Radetzky was the hero the declining empire needed. But his life wasn't that simple, and not as luxurious as one might think. It seems to be a true paradise, and it is a stunning adventure for everybody who experiences his first safari in one of Africa's national parks. Will they be found? Will they be seen? Buffalo, Elefant, Rhino, Lion and even Leopard? With stunning pictures from air and ground this film explores the most exciting landscapes of Kenya and its wildlife. Kenya's wildlife blooms due to its rich diversity.
But it is an unstable diversity which could also brush away other iconic animals like the Grevy's zebras or the wild dogs in short term. This unique land offers ecological diversity and exotic wildlife, some of its animals discovered only a few years ago; a land torn into pieces, burned and destroyed - but now on its way to become paradise again: this is Vietnam. More than 3. In the North, where the water is cooler, some of the world's richest Coral reefs can be found.
The mountainous regions up in Vietnam's northern parts hide last biological mysteries: some species have been observed for the first time only in our generation. Forrest Fenn is very, very rich. But when he found out he had cancer, he decided to spark the sense of adventure in people across the world. He stuffed a chest with many valuable treasures and buried it in the Rocky Mountains. He gave away nine clues in a poem he published and five more in interviews, but the chest is yet to be found.
If it's still out there, why wouldn't two Austrian kids stand a chance? The Adriatic Sea became the upper class' most prestigious summer destination of the 19th century. These rich and powerful holiday seekers took the southern train to places such as Opatija, Lovran, Losinj, Rijeka, and Portoroz which, until then, were still largely unknown, almost as fast as it does today. In this new production, we track down the imperial charm and lifestyle of the time.
The spirit of this glossy era, during which summer tourism was invented, lives on in many historical hotels and cafes. Musa, Lebemann with a Turkish background, drowns as a taxi driver until he falls in love with Aisha, the beautiful daughter of his strictly faithful boss Ercan Durmaz. In order to win her heart, he, who can not do much with religion, must become a model Muslim. Shortly thereafter, he gets a restaurant from his taxist's wife - but under a small condition: he has to convert to Christianity.
So at the same time become a Muslim and a Christian - an insoluble dilemma? Not for Musa! In the ancient Namib Desert, a young adult male lion wakes up on a desolate plain, far away from home. He is desperate to find his four brothers, who went missing a few days ago. Wandering through the desert all alone, he has just started the journey of a lifetime. Will he find his brothers?
Will they reunite? Picturesque landscapes, a raging torrent and exciting historical facts - the Enns Valley in Styria measures more than km in length. The Enns itself, at km, is the longest river to flow along its entire course in Austria. Meadows full with blue irises in May and June attract hikers and nature lovers, but the ski resorts in the Enns Valley are the main tourist magnet.
The Enns Valley has also been shaped by trade and transport over the centuries. The iron from the Erzberg mountain and food were transported on the 'Eisenstrasse' or iron road and on the Enns. In the past carts, rafts and boats were used; later trains and lorries took over. This film by Alfred Ninaus shows off spectacular landscapes and gives exciting insights into the history and customs of the Enns Valley. Many high Alpine refuges are more than years old. Several outstanding examples of early alpinism in Tyrol now enjoy protected status.
This magnifi cent building from the turn of the century feels like a grand hotel, but securing the energy and water supply in the high mountains takes a huge amount of eff ort. Existing huts are given 'velvet' restorations; 'replacement structures' are put in the place of dilapidated huts. Three new refuges are currently under construction in South Tyrol.
Which style should alpine buildings adopt? Experimental or traditional? That's one of the questions Teresa Andreae will pursue in her documentary. Hut owners, hut users and hut builders will all get a say. There is more and more talk of antibiotic resistance. We read that inflammations are becoming harder and harder to treat. The cause, among other things, is the slapdash approach doctors, vets and patients have taken to how they handle antibiotics, the miracle cure. But what does that mean for our day-to-day lives?
Do doctors still stand a chance - to treat middle ear infections for example? We do some research in sewage treatment works, pig sties and hospitals. Hochosterwitz Castle, Landskron Castle and the Kraig Castles are just some examples from the long list of imposing castles and aristocratic stately homes in Austria's southernmost state. The Middle Ages are particularly visible in Friesach: there aren't just three very diff erent castles all within sight of each other here. The town is also indulging in a 'new' castle that has been under construction since , using exclusively medieval construction techniques.
The project is more than just a laboratory for 'experimental history'; it has also become a tourist magnet. The construction of Siegfriedstein Castle is used by the fi lm's director Gernot Stadler, as a starting point for a journey through Carinthia's castle landscape and a nostalgic trip into the past - everyday castle life complete with medieval cooking. Traditional baked goods are common throughout Europe not just during the Christmas season, but at Easter too. The wide variety is the result of religious diff erences and regional quirks. One ingredient is particularly central at Easter: yeast.
Without this fungus, many Easter specialities such as Colomba Pasquale from Italy and Reindling from Carinthia in Austria would be unthinkable. This documentary goes in search of the most traditional recipes all over Europe. The Israeli artist is outstanding at creating hyper-realistic paintings with a captivating eff ect. His way of portraying light and his skills as a craftsman trigger both amazement and doubt. How are such deceptive copies of reality possible? Why would an artist create such paintings in an age of photography and a fl ood of digital images?
Needless to say, these marriages were largely unsuccessful. Watch as Maria Theresia struggled to balance dynastic responsibility and motherly love. Charlie is a young Bearded Vulture chick growingup among the sheer mountainsides of Switzerland's Engadin National Park. Helped by his family, Charlie will learn how to fly, will watch as his relatives paint themselves in the orange mud that is the preferred make-up of all their kind, and above all: he will be taught how to master the skills of dive-bombing with marrow-bones, his species' unique way toaccess high-nutrition food.
But at the age of two Charlie's dark plumage will become paler, and he will be rejected. Then he must fly away, as far as the skies of Milan or Rotterdam, only to return as anadult. Now he will most likely find another chick in his nest, and it's up to him to find his own mate, and cement the new relationship with the vultures' glorious mating flights. Bearded Vultures were eradicated from the Alps by , but in the s they were reintroduced, and now for the first time in acentury, three generations of vultures live side by side.
Why is a baby deer born with white spots - and why do they disappear as it grows? Why is a young wildboar striped? What makes the stripes fade withage? And why is a thrush spotted when it's young,and striped when it's older? For many animals it's the key to survival in the critical first days and weeks. Itworks like a magic cloak, that makes hatchlings and youngsters virtually invisible. A female deer leaves her fawn unattended for hours.
It's not strong enough to follow her, but she needs to graze to produce milk to feed it. The fawn's only hope is to be invisible. Maybe bright white spots aren't such a bad idea in a meadow full of daisies The Wiener schnitzel has conquered the entire planet. Menus around the world list it. Our trip through inns, snack bars and farms takes us all the way to America. There's even a fast food chain there called 'Wienerschnitzel'. The Wiener schnitzel started out as a dish for the upper classes and in the midth century it started being eaten by ordinary people on similarly festive occasions.
But why has this piece of pork coated in crispy breadcrumbs become the most popular type of schnitzel? Cigarette smoke contains a huge health risk that was long kept secret by the tobacco industry. It wasn't until the insider Jeffrey Wigand went public with his knowledge of the health risk in that this strategy was revealed. After his television performance on 60 Minutes, the company sued him and he got anonymous death threats. Jeffrey Wigand has since spent his entire time educating people on the consequences of smoking.
His Smoke-Free Kids foundation aims at convincing young people in particular of a life without smoking. Scientist have now investigated many ingredients in cigarettes and proved the addictive and carcinogenic effect of many of the substances. Nevertheless the tobacco industry continues to find a way to reach consumers. Tomcat Kurt accompanies us on an exciting journey through the fascinating world of animals.
The encounter between human sand animals plays an essential role.

Opening up the region to eco-tourism is not just intended to benefit the local economy; it is also the central strategy for sustainable development and nature conservation. The sanctuary was established in and opened to the public in Rhinoceroses, lions, leopards and buffaloes live alongside the elephant kings in the park. The local community runs the park autonomously, opens it for tourists and runs a lodge. Vienna is internationally renowed for its music, composers, virtuosos and conductors.
It is the ultimate city of music. Tourists from accross the globe come here to enjoy Austria's capital, and countless music lovers from around the world send their talented kids here to study music. This film penetrates into the secrets of the art of musical instrument making. A musical survey of workshops, rehearsal rooms, concert halls, stages and museums, as well as high-tech Studios and labs. And neither classic- nor modern music go short.
The boundaries between man and machine, between technology and nature, are becoming increasingly blurred and might even disappear completely in the future. Information technology, genetic engineering and nanotechnology are not only making considerable inroads into society, but also more and more directly into human nature.
The day when Homo sapiens is able to consciously design and radically change himself is not far away. A far-reaching optimisation of the human race using both existing and future technology seems to be the next logical step that mankind will take to bring himself closer to perfection. What was going on during the coup attempt, the mass arrest and mass dismissal in Turkey and how did it affect the political sentiment? Unlike the developedcities in the eastern coastal areas that are only growing slowly, the speed of growth and development is even rising in China's interior. North Korea is one of the most isolated countries in the world - and yet it gives sports enthusiasts the unique opportunity to participate in a marathon through the capital Pjongjang.
What happens to a society in which every fifth is forced to leave his home and live at someone else's place? When Cyprus was politically divided in , large parts of the population were forcefully moved. Whole villages have even lost their entire original population. This movie tells the story of this cultural dislocation from the critical perspective of two young Cyprians. They represent a young generation full of intelligent, self-confident and politically interested Cyprians who want to part with their parents' and grandparents' deadlocked standpoint regarding the Cyprus dispute and its consequences- and this, without losing track of their cultural roots.
They also meet two strong Cyprian women who, in the past few years, shaped the reappraisal of the conflict their own way. Donald Trump was nominated the presidential candidate of the Republicans in mid-July. Displeasing the party-establishment, the rude billionaire unexpectedly won the primaries, but right until the end, leading republicans denied supporting him. Whoever wins Swing-State Ohio during the presidential election campaign has a high chance of moving into the white house. At least that's what statistics say. Hannelore Veit met people from all over Ohio, people who are rarely heard of in the headlines.
From the coal region in the Southeast, via the cities of the Rust-Belts and the land of the farms, right to Lake Erie in Cleveland.
Branko Milanović – “We Had Everything Before Us, We Had Nothing Before Us” | Brave New Europe
Among the people she has met, there are passionate Trump fans, as well as people who would never vote anything else but a democrat. First Hungary, now Poland - a massive swing to the right is taking place in Eastern Europe.

Marija is 23 and claimed during the Corpus Christi procession in Cracow that she's in favor of tightening the abortion law as planned by the government. An abortion should only be possible if the mother's life is threatened, but not after a rape or due to serious disabilities. Parts of the Polish civil society are against it and call for demonstrations against the government's politics.
The industrial city of Donetsk in the Ukraine was probably only known before the war thanks to its football club, Shakhtar, but hit the international headlines with the advent of fighting two years ago. The renegade Donetsk is the stronghold of the pro-Russian separatists and the influence of Russia is - not least because of the Ukrainian embargo - becoming ever greater. It shows the political conflicts, the turmoil of war in Donetsk and the arduous reconstruction.
The gloss of the pre-war era has gone, but the opera and theatre continue to stage performances. The football stadium serves as a hub for aid of all kinds. The suburbs are still under fire today, but in the centre of Donetsk the people strive to live as normal a life as possible - a life in an unstable equilibrium - neither war nor peace, with a political solution further away than ever.
Which ideals have been linked to manliness and femaleness over the course of time? The fathers who used to fight in the Second World War passed on their ideals of manliness, orderliness, discipline and conscientiousness to their sons and grandsons.

To what extent may people retain their own ideas of religion, values, right and morals and still be thought of as integrated? A documentary from Austria, Germany and Sweden which seeks to examine in detail what integration really means and how it can be successful. For them too, it was hard at first: migrants who came to Austria years ago first had to learn the language and then find their place in society.
What do they think now - after many years being established in the country - about the refugees currently arriving in Austria? A film with migrants about their view of the new arrivals. Traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda are booming. But the traditional European medicine that above all was taught and passed on in the ancient monasteries is also now being rediscovered.
The holistic view of man included, alongside his spirituality, also his corporeality. Hildegard of Bingen, Paracelsus and Pastor Sebastian Kneipp are outstanding figures in this tradition. Abbeys and religious houses are today taking up the ancient art of healing in their treatment programmes. He is among the world's leading spiritual masters of the present day.

This offers more freedom and autonomy, but demands more selfcontrol and self-organization, and let turn employees into entrepreneurs.
The pressure is increasing; many are dropping out, and not by choice. Burn-out is one of the symptoms of a performance- obsessed society. Fifty percent of today's jobs will become automated in the next 20 years. As a young, penniless puppeteer and mother of an illegitimate child, Rosina Wachtmeister comes to Rome in the early s. She's left with nothing. Out of boredom she starts painting, and millions of people learn to love her golden cat pictures.
She sells them and uses the money to buy an Italian village where she creates a world far from the public. It offers a home to wild dogs and grounded artists. We dive into the adventurous universe of Rosina Wachtmeister and depict her development from an unknown young puppeteer to a globally operating artist and strident patron saint of a whole village. The coastlines of the upper Adriatic sea around Duino and Trieste, the shores of Istria and the islands of Kvarner Bay off the coast of Rijeka, formerly Fiume, are closely linked to the history of Austria.
Between Carniola and west coast of Istria , the different counties and districts came into the possession of the House of Habsburg and thus became Austrian. The important port of Trieste was under Austrian rule for over years and, from , was also the capital of the newly created crown land of the Austrian littoral. The - to some extent - centuries' old Austrian rule left clear traces behind in the region: in its architecture, the development of the transportation infrastructure, and in the minds of the people.
From the days of the Habsburg monarchy, the Adriatic coast, the Salzkammergut, Lakes Garda and Worthersee, and the Dolomites were the most exclusive destinations for upper classes and nobility. People travelled to the countryside with all the amenities of the city, and combined the benefits of well-tended natural surroundings and urban conviviality as if they were attending an outdoor parlour. Writers, actors and composers were inspired by the orchestrated natural idyll. Franz Joseph's rule lasted 68 years, making him the longest reigning Habsburg monarch.
Not long after the passing of Emperor Franz Joseph on 21st November , the dynasty, which had endured for centuries, collapsed. He became the symbol of the Habsburg Monarchy, a multi-ethnic state with all of its potential and problems. One of the greatest challenges for the dual monarchy was to unite the 11 nationalities and even more ethnic groups. This documentary off ers a glimpse of the person behind the political fi gure, showing a man caught between power and powerlessness. The Common Raven is the largest, cleverest and bravest European corvid - brave enough to makeits home in the harsh landscape of the 'TotesGebirge'- the 'Dead Mountains'.
This barren limestone plateau at 2, meters soaks up rainwater,leaving the peaks bone-dry. Further down, the precipitation creates a paradise of turquoise lakes, pristine springs, moss-covered forests and mysterious moors. The temporary karst springs bring further specialist behaviour: landlocked Danube bleak make short and spectacular migrations to their spawning grounds, and wallcreepers scurry up anddown steep cliffs, looking for larvae; while chamois,ptarmigans and mountain hares eke out a living amongst the jagged rocks.
Gliding on silent wings through this landscape of contrasts, the raven takes us on a tour of his realm: this forbidding limestone massif may appear dead - but through the raven's eyes it's anything but! For Slovenia's brown bears the fall of the Iron Curtain freed them to explore. Moving west through gentle Mediterranean countryside they encountered two obstacles: the Karawank Mountains and the Julian Alps.
This film tells what happens when inquisitive and intelligent bears cross the biggest natural barriers in search of a new life: fishing, hunting, raiding ants' nests, scooping up berries, even stealing honey as they go. The bears remember exactly where they have been in previous years; they revisit or avoid old haunts, moving ever closer to human civilization. The film sees the stark mountain landscapes and their flora and fauna wolves and lynx are here too through the eyes of the bears. Golden eagles, griff on vultures, bats and butterflies, ibex and chamois, red deer and marmots are some of the animals they encounter on the way.
Sustained by water from the mountains, naturethrives in Portugal's north, offering a lush habitat to flocks of Greater flamingo. They seek out river estuariesor abandoned saline pools where they feedon shrimps. The shrimps' eggs survive in dry saltup to 5 years, until conditions are right to emerge. High in the mountains the Spanish imperial eaglehunts rabbits and birds. Montados, forests of corkoaks, are the perfect hideout for Iberian lynx.
Herethe great bustard, Europe's heaviest bird, performsa captivating mating dance while reciting a song irresistible to females. The whole display is sometimes watched by a Mediterranean chameleon, Europe's endemic chameleon species. Far in the Atlantic, Madeira's Desertas Islands are the onlyhome of one of the largest and rarest species ofwolf-spider.
Here rare Mediterranean monk seals have one of the last colonies, while sperm whales enjoy the ocean's rich feeding grounds. The country had not yet admitted to possessing nuclear weapons, but I found it strange that Western media showed such disinterest towards this isolationist state: why were they ignoring a country that still ran concentration camps?
Away from the tourist trail, he shows off his favourite spots in Barcelona. An old dairymaid puts a tarotcard on a wooden table in an alpine meadow. A little later, a young woman is found dead in a hollow in the alpine mountains, but when the police reach the rough terrain, the body has disappeared without a trace. The victim is a German tourist.
Before her death, it seems, she gave an organist a lot of money as a donation towards building his organ tower. His girlfriend was incredibly jealous, as she always was whenever he won a tourist's heart with his music. But she isn't the only suspect. The tourist's huband wasn't happy with the alliance either. He suspects the organist of having killed his wife and taken all the money.
Everybody suspects everyone else. Nobody seems to put their cards on the table, not even the inspector who is expected to solve the case. Soon another tarot card is revealed on the mountain meadow, but which one? But at least he wants to try to put everything behind him: the case and vain public prosecutor Nicoletti, who dragged the commissario into the glare of publicity.
His old friend Verginer takes care of him. They talk, drink and even laugh from time to time. Then a couple are shot in the centre of Merano. She was the famous chairwoman of an Austrian bank. A terrorist background is suspected. The team of investigators at Vienna's Federal Criminal Police Office is faced with an unusually delicate task: Lieutenant-Colonel Moritz Eisner and his colleague, Major Bibi Fellner, aren't supposed to solve a murder case, but rather prevent one. A young man has kidnapped his parents and in an open message has threatened to harm his mother and father - both highly respected members of society - and himself.
Public interest in the events is huge. What's more, the young man always seems to be one step ahead of the investigators and successfully avoids being arrested. He skillfully influences public opinion about himself by using the social media and effectively directs his critical messages at the prevailing social system. Eisner and Feller are closing in on the young man and get into a spiral of public pressure, intense conflicts with each other, and growing inner doubts.
The longer the feverish hunt lasts, the clearer it becomes that the culprit isn't working alone. He must have accomplices that support him and his activities. The trail leads to a network of radical activists classified as extremist by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution. As theirnight shifts are only just bearable with alcohol,the quality of their unauthorized assumption ofauthority drops the later it gets.
In the end the interrogationof a young black African and his Austrianfriend results in a totally unplanned arrest- with unexpected consequences. In summer one of the most famous overtures by Gioacchino Rossini was performed in Erl, Austria - that of his last opera, Guglielmo Tell William Tell. And since, as is well known, the Accademia di Montegral is also a bel canto academy, the entire opera and with it a multifaceted cosmos of musical highlights were also presented.
From the five solo cellists at the start of the overture, and the famous galloping march, to the great prayer of thanksgiving at the end of the opera, not only does Rossini create a supposedly Swiss panorama of nature and the free spirit of the titular hero, but also revolutionises the operatic genre itself. Every year the traditional Christmas concert takes places in the glamorous Wiener Konzerthaus and brings together a quartet of the best international vocalists.
A repertoire of classic and popular music from around the world also determine the program as an annual climax during Christmas season.

A well-tended vineyard nurtures the quality of a wine over generations. But its micro-world is a battleground, an animal empire fought over in hundreds of tiny dramas every day. The irresistible smell of fresh vine leaves tempts deer out of the woods. European and Asian ladybugs swarm out of their underground colony after sleeping through the cold season. They will help save the vines from aphids. Foxes and buzzards eye the young rabbits playing in the morning mists, waiting for a moment's inattention from their wary mothers. An ant-lion lies in wait in its sandy pit, and a European green lizard flashes the flamboyant blue of its neck to impress the females, as it basks on the limestone walls, not far from its natural enemy, a smooth snake.
In the South of France the cat-like genet, the top vineyard predator, will dine on rabbits, lizards, snakes and even unwary pigeons, before finishing with a dessert of ripe grapes. Iran's landscapes and wildlife exceed all expectations. Over 50 per cent of Iran is barren deserts or vast steppes. Dasht-e Kavir is one of the biggest salt deserts in the world, while Dasht-e-Lut has Iran's great sand dunes, where deadly saw-scaled vipers battle with the poisonous fat-tailed scorpions, and even with long-eared hedgehogs! Further south, Lake Baghtegan is a vital winter home for thousands of pink flamingos.
On Iran's southern shores where the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman meet, pelicans and eagles, sharks and dolphins patrol the coastlines hunting fish and crabs. The shy peasant, Nemorino falls in love with the flamboyant landowner Adina. But Adina only has eyes for the handsome Sergeant Belcore.
That is until the travelling jack-of-all-trades, Dulcamara, arrives in town and the gullible Nemorino buys a love potion from him - which in reality is nothing more than a bottle of red wine. When Nemorino is prepared to put his life at risk just to get hold of more of the mysterious miracle potion, the tide turns: Adina's heart makes the arduous journey to peasant Nemorino.
More than 15, athletes and tens of thousands of coaches, support staff and spectators are expected to travel to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro this August. A description of the Dutch broadcasting system is preceded by a brief historic survey of migration, migrants and migration policy. The broadcaster NOS, whose portfolio includes various formats from current affairs to sport, is selected for the content analysis. The results show that migrants are not given a voice and are often judged negatively.
In addition, there is a hierarchy to the way countries of origin are assessed, with a difference between Eastern Europeans and Africans, for example. A clearer distinction of precisely which African countries were named in the programs analyzed is needed here. Furthermore, the discussion of results does not refer back to any research literature — the author merely mentions that he has based his work on the study by Heinz Bonfadelli et al. This paper p. Here, too, the results are presented with no more detailed reference to further studies.
On the one hand, they clearly show that reporting focuses on policy on foreigners and criminality. On the other, they demonstrate that, despite a certain sensitivity to the issue of migration at a staff policy level, no strategic measures are anchored in corporate policy. The author then uses this as a basis on which to compare the social reality with data from the Migration and Integration Report This approach appears a little peculiar — after all, fictional formats are subject to different aesthetic and dramaturgical considerations whose very nature means that they do not necessarily attempt to represent reality.
Unfortunately, there is no reference to further academic sources that might have provided some context for the research work. Nor is the fundamental significance of television entertainment and integration discussed, even though this would have provided a theoretical framework to underpin the paper. Inhaltsanalyse einer Programmwoche der Sendern [sic! After introducing public broadcasting in Spain, the author goes on to analyze two Spanish public channels and to address the question of how media professionals with particular ethno-cultural backgrounds are presented in the programming cf.
This is clearly an evaluation that could be seen as prejudice — why should members of ethno-cultural groups not speak without an accent? There is absolutely no attempt to address the issue of frames, which play a considerable role in this context. Different group relationships are largely written about at a descriptive level, with no theoretical contextualization.
To sum up, the key weakness of all the critically evaluated papers lies in the fact that most lack theoretical discourse and a presentation of research findings, nor do they employ the academic practice of backing up statements with sources. The country reports are enthusiastic descriptions, but provide no more detailed examination. The introduction by editor Barbara Thomass is the only section to deliver a refreshing, sophisticated view of the topic. Comparative perspectives are important, indeed essential — a fact that Thomass refers to in her closing comments on each article.
Although the case studies used are wide-ranging, however, only limited comparisons can be made and are documented in this publication. This review first appeared in rkm:journal.
