About the Magic of Christmas Cakes in Europe
Christmas time is the best season for cakes and biscuits in Europe. Anita Leckenberger goes on a quest to uncover the secrets of baking traditions. She will track down the Austrian Linzer Tart, the German Stollen, the French BŻche de NoŽl and many more.
Major Kottan is a homicide investigator with the Vienna police. Together with his colleagues, the one-legged Schremser and the simple-minded Schrammel, he solves cases marked by unusual circumstances and bizarre phenomena. While their superior, megalomaniac Chief Constable Pilch, makes their life and work even more difficult, Kottan unsuccessfully fiddles with his second career as a bandleader.
"Kottan's Investigations" always borders on highly charged parody and socio-critical aspiration. After all, who would expect that between everyday police work and gangland bosses one has to deal with coffee vending machines with artificial intelligence, UFO sightings or crocodile attacks? 12 episodes full of unruly corpses and absurd investigations, in short: crazy TV anarchy.

The Battle for Water
The battle for the elixir of life - water - is currently exciting public opinion in Europe. This has been triggered by fears that the EU might privatise the water supply.The basic question is: Is water a public commodity or is it ok to do business with it on a grand scale? For the EU Commission it has nothing at all to do with forced privatisation, but rather greater transparency in public procurement. Nevertheless, opponents see the common ownership of water being threatened by the commercial interests of big business. And critics fear that water is increasingly becoming a profit-making object of speculation. The consequences for consumers are always the same - lower water quality and increased costs. But is this all just scaremongering and unnecessary hysteria?
