Michael Por­tillo ven­tures deep into the Black For­est, where he dis­cov­ers how Hansel and Gre­tel helped to unify the Ger­man na­tion. A mas­ter­class in carv­ing cuckoo clocks demon­strates how the na­tion’s rep­u­ta­tion for qual­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity in man­u­fac­tur­ing was es­tab­lished. Later, at Goet­tin­gen Univer­sity, the for­mer politi­cian dis­cov­ers two sides of stu­dent life at the turn of the 20th cen­tury – the du­elling fra­ter­ni­ties and the ground-break­ing sci­en­tists who laid the foun­da­tion of Ger­many’s world-class trans­port tech­nol­ogy.

Talk: The singer-song­writer chats to Gra­ham Nor­ton.
