Free Skier Markus Eder: Eder, from northern Italy, found downhill skiing too boring and he now goes off-piste as a freeskier for some amazing rides. We tagged along to see one of the top in his trade this time skiing at a competition in the Swiss Alps. Music Prodigies: World-renowned German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter supports talented musicians through her foundation. One of them is cellist Maximilian Hornung. Metal Sculptor Martí Moreno: We watch the Spaniard at work as he ingeniously creates haunting pieces of art by welding together metal nuts. Antithesis Fashion: We're at London Fashion Week where we meet the founders of Antithesis, Renee Lacroix and Zahra Harper-Ash. They have a range of clothing based on just 10 pieces that can be combined to create 40 different looks. These are clothes for women with a social and environmental conscience who are too busy for fussy fashion. 225 Years of Knigge: Baron Adolph Knigge wrote his book "On Human Relations" in 1788 which eventually become an unofficial set of etiquette adopted by many Germans. We look at how important it is for Germans to be trained in proper manners, and we visit a course that does just that.
