unification unfamiliarity of germans with ukraine. here beside me you can see a way in on berlin where he was born and became famous here the pedestrian traffic light meant in fact the east german 150 years ago the 1st east german traffic live man where instilled in west berlin and the old ones removed they were among the few things from the former east germany to live on in our everyday lives and nowadays you can see that on pedestrian trussing throughout the city. is a little chubby. as a boldness knows and always wears a hat the traffic lights man from the former east germany known as the complementary. he's a bit of a cute childlike figure it is also a grown man with
12:46 am
a hat who acts very responsibly when crossing the street as well as works for us day and night. i think it's the combination that makes him so popular the standing man is also something balanced and calm about it and a clear design like which. is another traffic like that. 30 years after reunification the i'm to mention is celebrated as an east german success story. the traffic light men were 1st introduced in east berlin in 1900. traffic psychologist carl piccolo wanted to design a pedestrian signal that caught people's attention. difficult to appeal to children and older people when using abstract pictograms. so i simply tried to translate their clarity into personified symbols. lifelike and likable in this 1st designs the figure even had fingers on a mouse and karl big losses wife helped when it came to the half. the op to mention
12:47 am
became recognizable symbols which in the 1980 s. were used to teach children about road safety on east german t.v. . and a friend who can help. after reunification in 1900. step by step the west german pictogram gradually began to replace the east german complementary. designer house and had just moved to the newly rina 5 berlin and witness the i'm to mention being replaced. after reunification i spent a lot of time walking around the former east berlin i was actually standing here at this intersection when they were changing the lights over there. and i thought i'd ask the workers there if i could have the old glass lend-lease. figured i'd be able to make something with them gradually i had the idea of turning them into lights. because i may have saved the op of mention from extinction because lights caught people's attention in the former east people mourn the loss of their man. along
12:48 am
with inventor called a pickle because some successfully fought to keep the. 1971 for mention were recognized in the road traffic regulations in 20051 of the 1st east german traffic like many west berlin was installed in the famous quarters. 30 years after german reunification a little matter more than just traffic suggests the southwest was on there's something special about them they don't get standardized they look as if there's something particular to the capital if you please of their very friendly and project a nice image of our city you don't have them in other cities. and it creates a nice atmosphere things we noticed him i'm afraid it brings bill culture and history to a place i shouldn't forget his gold tradition. the green walking red and the red standing band are now world famous and popular souvenirs for tourists.
12:49 am
and internets and among our international customers it's the japanese who like the op mentioned most they love that all figures among us the up and mention are a bit like that and they're crazy about that in japan the east german op ed mentioned are quite well known. traffic light meant as a brand ambassadors inspired other cities 2 years ago back in hessen installed an elvis pedestrian line the american singer was one station 2 years a soldier. and karl marx's life now shines brightness birthplace. some european cities now have traffic light women. and same sex trafficked like couples. sometimes are sure there's a subtle way of spreading the message before no one really. traffic like that look like it was just that they were green or red and resemble a man but no one paid any attention to the design of it now because the east german opera mention i've become so famous the awareness for traffic light menace changed
12:50 am
worldwide on. most international pedestrian 2nd still feature simplistic pictograms . but maybe other countries will eventually follow these mentally. the sound of new united berlin was hot and electric in the air also saw the birth of techno the collapse emerged overnight in disused industrial holds and a bend and spaces such as the bungalow where i'm standing now on the former border between east and west berlin today it is the museum of art collectors cabinet. but shortly after you need to see the former air raid shelter was the center of the techno scene d.j. an alien from west berlin used to play here and experience firsthand how the city became a huge magnet for techno fans. allen alien is a techno i can't start d.j. and head of a record label born in west berlin german reunification was
12:51 am
a defining moment in her life. for me reunification was like an explosion. i got to experience what i'd always longed full take on the wall was gone and i could communicate and live with the people on the other side. of your lives. really and has performed all over from new york to hong kong for close to 3 decades she's been a berlin techno ambassador. as a teenager she was into hip hop but in the early ninety's she discovered techno. i like techno because it reminded me of berlin of how the wall fell and i walked around and hearing the noise of the streets for me the sound of the city i was taken to. after the wall fell rivers took over empty buildings near the former border in clubs like transit or young people from the east and west celebrated
12:52 am
techno as the new sound of freedom. there were open in 1901 and launched the careers of deejays like paul fein dying from the former east germany. ellen ileum soon began spinning records here too and other top clubs being a d.j. wasn't enough so she hosted a radio show in berlin and founded a music label i was right down trying to delegate the work i have my graphic artist and my booking agency i have someone helping take care of my label i delegate stuff to friends and people i can rely on. today berlin is a cosmopolitan city but while it was divided alien found the atmosphere oppressive that changed when the wall fell in 1989 and germany reunified a year later. that's where the tour hit what's not there it impressed me very much emotionally was finding out how different east and west but then this way. that you
12:53 am
know and also to live through the phase where we became one. all and. for years clubs like they are kind and wonderful and have cemented berlin's reputation as. techno capital but when the coronavirus pandemic struck last march the party was suddenly over. it was a nightmare for d.j.'s like alien who make their living travelling around the world and bringing people together to dance this summer she spent a lot of time traveling on berlin's water where you see trying to process the new normal. like this it was awful it was absolutely horrible because i was ready to go on to a full tour. so it was a big shock i must admit that i cried a lot. of violence. but instead of sinking into depression she took action in june she released her 9th studio album an hour and began streaming live d.j.
12:54 am
sets like here from berlin t.v. tower. the lens techno scene isn't giving up either it's returning to its improvised roots after german reunification and like then finding empty buildings the club reveres it almost has opened on the grounds of a former brewery covers wear masks and socially distance cameras are not permitted . first of all opening up a club in the corona era in 2020 is very brave of dahl that the owner here looks like it gives us a huge energy. and gives us something to show off to the world in berlin a club is opening up in 2020. 5 homes like this i think. and of course ellen alien is performing here as well.
12:55 am
but you don't have to go to a club to experience something new and exciting in berlin the streets of beirut ings of the city common life during the ballet lights festival famous len box like the brand new book gates are based in colorful lights and this was a year mix program dedicated to german unity and with these fantastic pictures from berlin it is time for me to say goodbye and if you want to see mall then visit our social media channels or check out our website there you will also fight all the details on our current views drop until we meet again goodbye stay safe a thanks for watching.

1:00 am
this is the wu slaughter from perfect donald trump tweets for the 1st time since being hospitalized because of it not thing he says he's doing well is personal doctor is also off base saying trump is improving but there are questions although when the president was infected and diagnosed coming up. germany celebrates 30 years of reunification president frank botha stockpiles of the last 3 decades. the triumph of democracy of the pressure that he wants against populism and extremism.
1:01 am
imagine how broken he was president donald trump has taken to twitter for the 1st time since he was flown to hospital with covered 19 trump says he's feeling well and thanks stuff at the walter reed medical center in maryland the president's doctor gave an upbeat assessment of his progress but there are also questions of the timing of trump's diagnosis and infection. that team of doctors treating donald trump tried to offer some reassurance to the nation that the us president was doing fine they painted a fairly rosy picture and said he was doing quote very well. as reported yesterday consultation with this group i recommended we bring the president up to walter reed the precautionary measure measure. to provide state of the art monitoring and any
1:02 am
care that he may need just 72 hours into the diagnosis now the 1st week of covered in a particular day 7 to 10 of the most critical in determining the likely course of this illness. the doctors said the president was not experiencing any trouble breathing and stress that he'd been fever free for over 24 hours. but the doctors clarification on trump's condition confused many 72 hours into the diagnosis would mean he was confirmed infected on wednesday it wasn't until early friday that trump told the world that he and the 1st lady had contracted covered 19. on thursday he attended a private fundraising event at this golf course in bedminster new jersey with hundreds of guests. trump's doctor sean conley later issued a statement saying he misspoke and meant day 3. made while president trump had
1:03 am
nothing but praise for his medical team tweeting that great progress was being made against the coronavirus plague the race is already on the trace and test the people who might have come into contact with the president and the potential pool of people is huge. how do you have several people close to trump who attended an event at the white house rose garden a week ago have now tested positive for corona virus and that number could still grow. crowds continue to gather outside the walter reed hospital to show their support for the president donald trump's illness has thrown his presidential campaign into uncharted territory and he is now one of the more than 7000000 americans diagnosed with the virus. are joining us now is our correspondent carolina chinmoy in washington carolyn. trump's physicians struck
1:04 am
a very upbeat tone but his statement was rather thin on details what more can you tell us. well at least we heard something from the doctors because you see it's it's been quite confusing 1st the president and the 1st lady says current team in the white house then suddenly the president was transferred to the hospital and now we know that he had fever and cough and then we got only a paper statement yesterday quite late from the doctor saying that everything is fine and the tweets coming from the president finally today a briefing this morning were trying doctor said that the president was improving that he was doing very well and. the president's doctors said he was happy with the president's condition but a service as he already told from the white house apparently chief of staff mark meadows said there was more calls for concerns. there are some reports as you
1:05 am
touch on we're hearing saying that these condition is actually more acute what is the source of the confusion here. well a spike only assertion that trump is doing very well the white house official identified by the associated press as white house chief of staff mark meadows later said that the situation is and will be critical for the president's care but this is the information that is circulating on the media right now it has not seen officially called for. more people in the president's inner circle have tested positive in recent years did trump's physician shit in the lot on exactly when and when the string of transmission took place. no no he didn't but this is also not his job right now of the president's doctor is being
1:06 am
very careful about what he says and what he doesn't specially to the media because it is a very uncertain situation there is a lack of information from the white house to the media many a journalist who already reported 981 on the attempted assassination of president reagan who was shot 0 back then and wanted and hospitalized and they are telling us and comparing and telling us that the communication back then was much more transparent they would have a person in charge who would keep the media informed every hour and this is how it should be it's the president of this country it's not anyone who is right not hospitalized. carolyn the chimley in washington has them or excuse me just to go. i think. ok let's turn our attention now to some of the other stories making news around the world. italy's far right opposition leader tells how beanie has gone on trial charged with illegally
1:07 am
detaining migrants when he was interior minister last year more than $100.00 migrants were made on the ship itself so getting white and 4 other states to agree to take them in the projects the charges calling them politically motivated. drenching rains have triggered landslides and heavy flooding in the southern french at least i people are missing it leave one firefighter died in a rescue operation and of the people unaccounted for the storm caused power outages and widespread property damage. well germany has been marking 30 years of national reunification the previously divided east and west were officially brought back to give the 3 decades ago the president of the federal republic frank spoke at a commemoration in potsdam neighborly the event was scaled back because of the pandemic. a landmark date celebrating 30 years since
1:08 am
a divided germany became one again the film studios in potsdam just outside berlin provided the stage for the official ceremony a toned down event due to the coronavirus pandemic only 230 guests were present about one 5th of the audience originally planned plans for a big street party had to be abandoned. in his keynote speech german president. said the pandemic couldn't blunt the country's pride in the achievement of reunification he paid tribute to the peaceful revolution in communist east germany that brought down the berlin wall in november 1989. well. you know 2020 of the german federal republic is a country that has been molded by east germans and west germans well rooted family and. it is a country that draws hope from the victory of the ideas of 989.
1:09 am
many were the lessons learned from germany's the vision and unification steinmeier said including the country strong belief in international cooperation an approach now often being called into question around the world. we germans are committed to international cooperation even though it has become harder especially since it has become harder. we want to stand up for a strong and fair international order together with our partners in europe ladies and gentlemen dear guests this too is a lesson in mission we've inherited from our history. a day of remembrance but also of celebration accompanied by performances appealing to the musical tastes of all age groups including the almost 13000000 germans who are 30 years old or younger who never experienced a divided germany. a country now united but were economic and sometimes cultural
1:10 am
differences still exist recent polls show 2 thirds of germans don't think the process of reunification is complete a task that will be up to younger generations to accomplish in the years to come. transitional government has signed a peace agreement with several rebel groups the deal brings years of conflict to an end groups including the militia have been terrorizing the volatile nation on the horn of africa finale 2 decades a report looks at how the peace treaty could help one young victim. the years i spent with this family here were happy ones they lived in this heart had cattle and never wanted for anything he'll never forget that friday back in 2003 when all of it was taken away jonjo with militia attacked the village out of mynd then just 12 years old was in the mountains with his family's cattle. we heard that the whole
1:11 am
village had been burned to the ground and the people were raped and killed it was a terrible day for me. their mission was part of the genocide following orders from then president omar al bashir the group were to crush an uprising of known arab tribes against the regime in darfur. they said hundreds of villages on fire plundered and murdered more than 300000 people were killed and another 2 and a half 1000000 were forced to flee their homes. they could kill your father in front of your eyes rape your family. that's why he fled to a refugee camp. wastelands and abandoned villages still bear witness to the war crimes of the past 17 years until recently militias close to the government and awful continue to spread fear and terror even while the new government in khartoum
1:12 am
promised reconciliation and peace. so far very few have dared to return to their villages. tens of thousands are waiting in refugee camps like this one without jobs without prospects. petrol and electricity are in short supply and many can barely afford food. everything here is expensive and many things aren't available even drinking water is expensive and there's no bread at all that well it was. great hopes rest on the peace treaty the government signed with the rebels. refugees like al-ameen want to go back to their villages and they want justice for the crimes they were victim to. we hope that our most important demands will be met we want security we want compensation we want to livelihood but above all we refugees and they want peace.
1:13 am
a life without fear or pain a better future for his son alan wants the same things as millions of others in sudan but after decades of war people are no longer sure if they can still hold on to hope. the football now and dortmund were looking to bounce back from a defeat in their last outing last season's runners up had some star players back in the fold and against freiburg unveiled what could be the makings of a new dynamic duo. young norwegian scoring machine erling hala netted 2 goals in dortmund's 1st home game this season now against fribourg he was hoping to add to that total i'm and that's exactly what he did and opened the scoring with half an hour ago. gio raina us set him up to thread the ball underflow

miller's outstretched leg and into the net. i 2 minutes into the 2nd half a corner from raina and m. rage on double door and sleep by fribourg simply can't be giving john all this space to head home. i pray now then set up holland 20 minutes later to make it 3 nil for dortmund by 3 assists on the day for the 17 year old american. by then holland turned provider for félix. rounded out the scoring in the game's final minutes with his 1st ever abundantly goal i 4 nailed the final score paul then got more goals to the delight of fans young and old and dortmund get back to winning ways in convincing fashion was it watching the news from
1:15 am
berlin up next sports live asks why i gem and unification failed in football but i forget you can always get the latest news and information from around the clock on our website that's dot com i'm anthony how i'll be back with more headlines for you at the top of the hour now thanks for watching. where i come from we have to fight for a free press and was born and raised in. it's how he thanked her she for just one t.v. shadow and a few in his face 1st one official information as a journalist i had walked off the streets of many cancers and their problems are always the same 14 social inequality a lack of the freedom of the friends. we can afford to stay silent when it comes to
1:16 am
the fans the humans and see them right through fools who have decided to put their trust in us. my name is james harrison and foreign policy. ah. 98930 years ago the wall fell people in the east looked forward to the
1:17 am
future to a new world new possibilities and western products. was similar in november 89 looked forward to west after the money your sponsors and your words but. as did players like manchester city legend. then a 20 year old east german international we watched our idea i didn't see on television for years for decades and then we played against them all g.d. our talent stephan floyd who benefited from the change not just because he. later won the euro's. went to straight away a penthouse flat can you imagine a pet dog fled. the people of east germany so great times coming but things turned out differently most companies in the g.d.r. was shut down millions of people lost their jobs the east an economy crashed and
1:18 am
so did its football. today 30 years after the fall off the wall not a single team from the east german top division in $89.00 part of the. last g.d.r. champions homes are stuck in the 3rd division g.d.r. record champions denominator lin play in the 4th tier alongside lock light 6 and the air force are in the 5th division they all formally played in europe and even worse jeff and florence form a club style become the book currently play in the 2nd tier. 30 years after the fall of the wall it's pretty clear to see reunification and football. couldn't have gone differently the situation for the g.d. are in november $89.00 wasn't so bad reigning champions dinner dresden had reached the u.a.e. for a cup semifinals just a few months before 2 nama berlin almost eliminated us in venice a s monaco from the cup winners' cup. one game after game in the usa for cup.
1:19 am
i am the national team were on their way to qualifying for the 1990 world cup they beat the olympic champion soviet union in this stunning performance i was freaked out so how did these german football become what it is today. he came over. with a few guys and bought the best player there is a good example why in the end was difficult to survive. and live accusing manager sealed the 1st east west deal just one month after the fall of the wall he signed. the best striker time. dressed in style
1:20 am
followed. later ballon d'or winner went to stuttgart the same year. and. all the talent. and. clubs didn't really. pay the money they should exist. and destruction the dream of the golden west turned out to be a nightmare the g.d.r. couldn't compete in the free markets. were all parts of. the play as paid by the state there was no know how in terms of marketing sponsorship. regional sponsors in the east didn't have much money and most of the western companies didn't want to invest in east german clubs you think the investors from the west were interested in other things probably mainly in real estate. trusts. lower. it was really getting into investing in football but.
1:21 am
we called. invested in many east german clubs in the ninety's and to thousands he saved only one berlin from bankruptcy and helped the like 6 to rise but some of his our fellow investors ventures failed. denominated dresden for example ruined by a west german businessman who later went to prison for embezzlement. when. many club simply made wrong decisions with the money he tried to get to know exactly what they were doing and they sign players or coaches from the west for way too much money. from this. group i look to for. of course it was bad management of course a lack of investment of course lack of infrastructure but how the club in the east should know how to run
1:22 am
a football club when they will never exposed to. some of the lack of commercial power in the east was a big factor in why reunification in football failed. another reason for the downfall of football is that the fusion of the east and west german leagues simply wasn't fair in 1989 the west german bundesliga had 18 teams and the east german over league had 14 sides instead of merging these leagues all 18 when the 2nd teams were allowed to stay in the top division and only 2 east german teams could join a further 6 g.d.r. teams were relegated to the 2nd division and the rest went from the 1st to hurt all germany for example former european cup winners knocked a book or record champion dynamo berlin played here in this stadium as well. it was pretty unfair or should have expanded the bundesliga then maybe the damage would have been so bad that it put the 10 years. in.
1:23 am
the east football family and. the west one family basically. just won the world cup so basically you have to take what you get. difficult start in the 1st 3 unified season he struggled at dresden in $92.00 unsuccessfully went to the west german club. was enough a level of football. to cope with. contracts to cope also little society with both you had to do look out for yourself in the east. came from a collective we was more. in the west the need to. expand to survive now you have to look after you save you have to. realise
1:24 am
a little bit. how far. east german side was away from the. west. despite these differences 74 in the west he won titles with dortmund and germany and then did up as a family favorite talking the. same for manchester city between 94 and 98 he scored 50 goals for the sky blues becoming part of their hall of fame. meanwhile their former clubs collapsed. went bankrupt in 1998. dressed and left the bundesliga and 995 millions of debt and never came back. so 30 years after. but wait in east german class making do
1:25 am
but in some way east is very much alike. take the current german youth development system it is undoubtedly one of the best in the world with specialized football schools and an outstanding scouting system from age 10 all implemented in the 2000 east germans. he basically copied a lot of things where that already happened decades 2030 years before in the east and i think all football germany had benefit that. came after that with a lot of young talent i propose if you take a look at the 3 decades after reunification who were the best around the place. in the 90s. born and raised in dresden g.d.r. . in the 2000 mikhail buck born and raised in calm are structured and in the
1:26 am
20 tense 20 course also born and bred in east germany a lot of east german class play later for the german national team there is a character and a power that i fink it comes from the overall situation in east germany east germany was a poor country you have to fight you have to work hard you have to grow as a person. east germany is no longer poor things are getting better and since 2005 we even have an east german chancellor. east germany was. oddly not the nicest area to live no is fantastic to live there and then you realise our why not to play for our knowledge to play for greece then again leipsic knol. and with abi like sake there's finally a team from the east that can really compete with the big teams from the west the club was promoted to the bonus. so you get in 2016 and finished 2nd in the 1st
1:27 am
season behind by him but ahead of don't manage and therefore top flight season so far they've qualified for the champions league 3 times last season under the guidance of their young coach julian not goes among the team breached the semifinals beating the likes of tottenham and to let eco madrid along the way. thanks for the likes of people that somebody comes in and. thank you flights at the chance to participate in the bundesliga and participate in the champions league and . to have the option to fight for the title to something fantastic. since last season only on berlin has also been in the bundesliga for the 1st time after spending 10 seasons in germany's 2nd tier the club from the east berlin district of company enjoys cult status far beyond the capital on your own cultivates the image of the underdog in terms of sport the team was able to convince in the 1st year the
1:28 am
promoted side finished their 1st season in their place so reunification failed but the east is still alive. it was north of mexico as well so rich. can really feel how high fences are right i'm going to sing no. guns and never people because. i am chris here it is. political. i think you.
