Today's program looks at two patchwork families from Berlin, checks out chocolatier Nina from Rhineland-Pfalz and visits some Hamburg senior citizens who keep fit by doing karate.
Patchwork families are what result when parents separate from their partners and then find new ones. It's not always easy for children to cope, but as two patchwork families in Berlin prove, the situation also has its advantages.
Nina Klos from the village of Schwabenheim in Western Germany is a trained confectioner. She not only creates delectable truffles, but tempting chocolate Santas as well.
In Hamburg, a group of senior citizens have taken up karate. The idea is not just to boost their self-confidence. It's a great way of keeping fit as well.
