will take another 3 or 4 months before it becomes a finished watchword. crab studied sculpture and began his career at madame tussaud . or the legendary london watch museum fashioned lifelike sculptures of many famous people. such as former beatle paul mccartney actress fun being big and composer live begun by coven. war interests me about. the paper i scoped is that everyone is completely individual and capturing what it is about someone that makes them look that way it can be almost a meditative experience you know just getting lost in and the forms and the shots they are sculpting and then you forget about her is that you're actually working.
5:39 am
jethro krupp mainly works using photos of the people in sculpting it's rare that he works with large models he focuses more on physical characteristics and personality traits. the amount of research that idea on a character depends. really are much their interest but i don't think it's. strictly necessary to know everything about me and the venture i'm sculpting once he's completed his play model his team helps with the next steps 1st they make a silicon moat strengthen the fiber glass for the heads a special wax mixture is poured into the silicon mold the hair is inserted strand by strand several layers of oil paint creates an authentic skin tone like here for us talk show host oprah winfrey. left to show off the years and went into

business for himself making caricature as of figures like french president emanuel mccrum entrepreneur must and members of the british royal family created for the satirical show spitting image. just. the way it was taken from. the falls talking about walking in the process of sculpting a realistic head and sculpting a caricature i had quite similar earlier. the difference being in the degree there exaggerate the things that unite us we would receive sketches caricature sketches. from those though freedom for us to add our own style that's really why i enjoy a caricature of. jethro crowe things joe biden is characterized by his dazzling white teeth and eye symmetrical smile which gives his face
5:41 am
a slightly longer side appearance. is that enough for a good caricature of a router a caricature a sculpture of biden i'm warming his head as i work on a sort of. seeing the possibilities and. every winter between november and january something very special happens on the german island of heligoland the birth and breeding of gray seals during this time hundreds of young pups are born and raised on the wind protected dunes before they discover the water visitors are allowed to witness these incredible scenes from a distance on a special trail your own x. reporter hendrick belling went there for a firsthand look. heligoland is a nursery grounds for the gracie. i'm visiting the north sea archipelago where
5:42 am
hundreds of seal pups are born and raised every year. there are a few places where you can get as close to the grave as in your own heligoland and they're much cuter than i thought but also what's more dangerous. after the 2 hour ferry ride i reached germany's only island in the high seas land was once a hideout for pirates before becoming a popular tourist destination in the 19th century but i haven't come to visit the famous sandstone sea stick known as the long ana i'm headed for the heart of do you know the smaller aisle next to the main island in the winter there are fewer tourists but many more seals i'm here for them. sometimes there are so many animals that the ranger will to power she must block off the beach for a while this gives the seal some peace and quiet but mainly it's to protect the students because while they may look cute these are germany's largest predators
5:43 am
living in the wild from this special path through the jones we can observe the seals and see where they've come from november to january is mating season and the time when mothers give birth. it's more the reason it's so attractive is because it's protected from storm tides and that's very important when it comes to choosing a place to give birth to their young kid gray seal pups need to be on line for at least the 1st $3.00 to $4.00 weeks so that's what counts. on just saved. from up close i can observe how mother cycle very young after 2 or 3 weeks the cow leaves her pup on its own from then on it has to fend for itself. although they look much the same they're very different there are fearful pops and
5:44 am
ones that are always out for a final stage that are always unfriend likable foods and ones that just peacefully observe everything so completely different characters. are killed. off to a few weeks the pops make their 1st attempts at swimming but only after that if or shut their 1st for a coach their company weidman new go doesn't offer them enough protection and the walked. over 650 pops were born here this winter more than ever before and just 2 weeks after giving birth the cows are ready to mate again. at this time the males are even more aggressive but the bulls which way up to $300.00 kilos fight for the cow's favor. i witness that right on the beach i feel safer by the rangers side they're good most of those audience the larger one is certainly a young boy unfortunately he's trying to mate with
5:45 am
a very young female. but they might look cute but they really aren't. this isn't us nish. now i know why we have to stay 30 meters away from them too they will bite your they bite design's who i'd say they could bite right through a leg like ours really. once they've raised the young and made to get in the seals gradually leaves helical and then there are only a few left until next winter. seeing so many gray suits in the wire this really impressive especially the babies they're really really cute but when you get so close to them you realize that they are really really dangerous predators and that's what prefer to watch them from the safe distance. not to satisfy my urge to pet one i've borrowed this stuffed toy for my daughter definitely the

smarter alternative. besides beer germany is best known for its bread now there are thousands of different kinds of bread on offer here with many bakers who relish and it's tradition or for our series food secrets we find out what goes into making that special loaf of bread. we have over $300000.00 grudged the types of bread in germany germans of bread crazy we simply love pretty. good business we shouldn't see bread is just the base for cold cuts or chance cold cuts and cheese or just the supporting acts and bread is the star.
5:47 am
it's been some stuff on the cinema 30 years old and a 4th generation mass to break up the place great value and tradition across machines it and it all revolves around the wood burning stove which was gorgeous for a good german praed you don't need much more than flour in this cups it's wheat and rye flour. then you have sold east water from the store of the shop sourdough whole together the finished product takes about 5 hours to make like yes this is all good but that was. far all we're planning on beach and oakwood we let it reach about 262270 degrees celsius then we use the decreasing heat to buck when the last loaf comes out the temperature is around 210
5:48 am
degrees. but not many because i for the salad ripens overnight while the bacon sleep sourdough lends enormous flavor to the kind of also increases the shelf life we always mix up fresh leavening so i can ride been a new every day i will move on i'm taking one kilogram of rye flour and adding 900 milliliter water and adding a piece of salad i let dissolve in the water then i mix it all together you can do this either by hand or with the machine that we cover the sourdough and that is sets of harm temperature for 24 hours so it can develop completely within the next day it will be incorporated into the present. and then or try this daughter from this salad as for my great grandma from 1928.
5:49 am
also already baked toss than that in a wood burning of the 65 percent wheat and 35 percent raw so selecting the right flower is enormously important just a. few dots 3 germans have some advantages in our own country we can find the 3 major grains used for bread that's spelt wheat and rye we grow all of them here so we don't need to import anything and can use the type of grains we have my mum you know my name is bettina lewis and i'm the 2nd bread somalia in germany bread so my game means con a sewer we listen to the bradley savor the bread and that's how we create the perfect bread for the perfect meal. and i say we are one of the few countries that offer this qualification from apprentice to assistant to master i master needs to be able to create bradish and that's why we have so many new types.
5:50 am
no but come up there are so many things happening inside that was that i think nothing of the process is within the pred and within the crust of the bread. front bar and since all it takes the crust carmelites is which results later in the christmas and also adds to the taste and over to. the i board. is an important factor so here you see we have a wonderfully brown crust. for it to also home and then the baker has to have an if for the finished product. if you take the loaf and turn it over and knock on the bottom you should hear this hollow sound and that's all signified that's how we know that bread is done. and finally here in berlin we haven't
