The LakeLab in the rbb TV series "A summer in Brandenburg"

rbb TV arriving with their nostalgic bus

During last summer, from June to September 2014, rbb journalist Johannes Unger and his team travelled through Brandenburg. Driving an old Robur bus that had been produced in the former GDR, they were looking for exceptional places, people and stories. On July 22nd, they stopped over at IGB Stechlin where Prof. Hans-Peter Grossart and PhD student Thomas Hornick explained their research at the LakeLab. The whole trip has been summarized in a special road movie that will be broadcasted in four parts at the rbb TV from April 28 to May 1, 2015.

The rbb crew stopped over at more than 50 places along the way; Unger and his team covered a distance of more than 6500 km with a nostalgic Robur bus – always in leisure and unhurried. Similarly, Theodor Fontane, the famous German novelist described the wonders of Brandenburg in his "Walks through Mark Brandenburg" published during the second half of the 19th century. "The best thing is driving; let it all go by with open eyes from the coupe, the car, by boat, from the Fiacre; this is the A and 0 of traveling." Like Fontane, the rbb TV team could not pass by Lake Stechlin.

On Tuesday July 22, 2014, the Robur bus arrived at IGB Stechlin. The TV crew wanted to learn more about the research at IGB and particularly the Lakelab, the floating mesocosms in Lake Stechlin. During the tour to the LakeLab and through the laboratory building, Prof. Hans-Peter Grossart and PhD Thomas Hornick were filmed and interviewed. The TV visit will be broadcasted as one episode in the series "A summer in Brandenburg" on rbb TV on Wednesday April 29, at 20:15.
