Germany Today - Window on Germany

In this episode: We meet Germany's youngest flight instructor, a 20-year-old who teaches students to pilot a gyrocopter. In Aachen, we see how bus drivers and learner drivers are being taught ways to save fuel. We take a look back at the first programmable computer, invented by Konrad Zuse. And, in our Video of the Day, we visit a Berlin nursing home that caters to immigrants.

One in every 11 pensioners in Germany originally came from another country. When these people become old and sick they require professional care that's suited to their needs -- just like the Germans. In Berlin's Kreuzberg district, one nursing home specializes in providing care for immigrants. Opened five years ago, this facility is now home to 130 people -- mainly of Turkish or Arab origin.
