Galileo is the number 1 science programme in Germany which airs for an hour each evening and is avaialable in Austria and Switzerland too. The producer picked up our story from Der Spiegel. earlier in the year.
The crew spent two days living with us, filming our lifestyle and generally digging around in the dirt to see what we got up to.
We took them shopping, showed them how we cooked and gave them a grand tour of our recycling centre.
This week the programme is hosting a ‘Green 7’ series where they highlight environmental stories from around the world and last night our story featured on their programme! The plan was they would take our ideas back to Germany and challenge a family to live in the same way, using the facilities they have over there.
Within an hour of the programme being aired we had several gorgeous emails from people who had watched the programme and our facebook page was flooded with new ‘likers’.
So it’s safe to say the Green’s went to bed on a high last night.
I must admit, between you and me, I’ve been on a bit of a downer recently. Sometimes you get to a plateau in life where you question everything you are doing and why you are doing it. The past month has been one of those months for me.
However reading the comments from new people such as Anna-Lena who said “you really inspired me to follow your kind of living”. Or Chrsitoph who shared “watched galileo right now … and – wow your doin a great job. im really thinking of doing that myself”. Followed by Harrison who wrote “i just saw you on german tv! really a great idea! i’ll try to do it your way. thanks for inspiration!” I’ve got a smile back on my face. You just never know who you are going to pass the baton to next or who is going to take one of your ideas and impliment it.
Let that be a lesson to us all – keep on sharing, inspiring and doing what you do because you never know who is watching …
You’ll be able to watch the programme but you might need to fiddle around a bit; for example I can watch it on my laptop on Firefox but not on Opera and I can’t view it at all on my ipad. So if at first you don’t succeed; try a friend’s computer, pop to the library or use another browser 😉
Try viewing Galileo – Green Week and let me know what you think!
