to the US. Theatre and culture Wittenberg has a long tradition of cultural events. The City Theatre (''Mitteldeutsches Landestheater'') reached a great importance in GDR (East Germany) times. Since 1996, the City has staged open-air theatre shows based on the Lutheran history still alive in many historical places of the ancient town. As highlights, in 2001 and 2005, Fernando Scarpa became the artistic director of the ''"Bühne Wittenberg"'' (Stage Wittenberg), a project for theatre, art and culture in the whole of Germany which attracts to the city plenty of audience and whose success achieves European echo. On 2002 and 2003 Stefano Vagnini, Italian composer and organist created the music for ''Thesys'' and ''Luther Stories''. Hamlet is said to have studied in Wittenberg and it was the supposed home of Dr Faustus. thumb The Glienicke Bridge (File:Glienicker Brücke2.JPG), used for exchanging spies during the Cold War The government of East Germany (formally known as the German Democratic Republic (German: Deutsche Demokratische Republik, DDR)) tried to remove symbols of Prussian militarism. Many historic buildings, some of them badly damaged in the war, were demolished. Brandt's most important legacy was ''Ostpolitik'', a policy aimed at improving relations with East Germany, Poland, and the Soviet Union. This policy caused considerable controversy in West Germany, but won Brandt the Nobel Peace Prize in 1971. thumb 250px left Willy Brandt with France French (File:Bundesarchiv B 145 Bild-F037099-0021, Köln, Staatsempfang für Präsident Pompidou.jpg) president Georges Pompidou in Cologne, 3 July 1972. As Chancellor, Brandt developed his ''Neue Ostpolitik'' (''New Eastern Policy''). Brandt was active in creating a degree of rapprochement with East Germany, and also in improving relations with the Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and other Eastern Bloc (communist) countries. A seminal moment came in December 1970 with the famous ''Warschauer Kniefall'' in which Brandt, apparently spontaneously, knelt down at the monument to victims of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The uprising occurred during the Nazi German military occupation of Poland, and the monument is to those killed by the German troops who suppressed the uprising and deported remaining ghetto residents to the concentration camps for extermination. In 1971, Brandt received the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in improving relations with East Germany, Poland, and the Soviet Union. 1972 crisis Brandt's ''Ostpolitik'' led to a meltdown of the narrow majority Brandt's coalition enjoyed in the ''Bundestag''. In October 1970, FDP deputies Erich Mende, Heinz Starke, and Siegfried Zoglmann crossed the floor to join the CDU. On 23 February 1972, SPD deputy Herbert Hupka, who was also leader of the ''Bund der Vertriebenen (Federation of Expellees)'', joined the CDU in disagreement with Brandt's reconciliatory efforts towards the east. On 23 April 1972, Wilhelm Helms (FDP) left the coalition ; the FDP politicians Knud von Kühlmann-Stumm and Gerhard Kienbaum also declared that they would vote against Brandt; thus, Brandt had lost his majority. On 24 April 1972 a vote of no confidence was proposed and it was voted on three days later. Had this motion passed, Rainer Barzel would have replaced Brandt as Chancellor. To everyone's surprise, the motion failed: Barzel got only 247 votes out of 260 ballots; for an absolute majority, 249 votes would have been necessary. There were also 10 votes against the motion and 3 invalid ballots. Most deputies of SPD and FDP did not take part in the voting, as not voting had the same effect as voting pro Brandt. It was not revealed until much later that two ''Bundestag'' members (Julius Steiner and Leo Wagner, both of the CDU CSU) had been bribed by the East German (East Germany) Stasi to vote for Brandt. Guillaume had been an espionage agent for East Germany, who was supervised by Markus Wolf, the head of the "Main Intelligence Administration" of the East German Ministry for State Security. Wolf stated after the reunification that the resignation of Brandt had never been intended, and that the planting and handling of Guillaume had been one of the largest mistakes of the East German secret services. In the early 1980s a political crisis (Soviet reaction to the Polish crisis of 1980–1981) emerged in Poland (People's Republic of Poland) with the emergence of the Solidarity (Solidarity (Polish trade union)) mass movement. By the end of October Solidarity had 3 million members, and by December 9 million. In a public opinion poll done by the Polish government, 89% of the respondents supported Solidarity. The New Zealand Government (w:New Zealand Government) is to investigate how 20-year-old top secret papers were released. They show that New Zealand (w:New Zealand) was spying on the communications of Argentina (w:Argentina), the Soviet Union (w:Soviet Union), East Germany (w:East Germany), France (w:France), Egypt (w:Egypt), Japan (w:Japan), North Korea (w:North Korea), Vietnam (w:Vietnam), Laos (w:Laos), the Philippines (w:Philippines), Fiji (w:Fiji), Tonga (w:Tonga), the Solomon Islands (w:Solomon Islands), South Africa (w:South Africa) and even the United Nations (w:United Nations) diplomatic cables. The union has also demanded equal pay for drivers in former East Germany (w:East Germany). Georg Milbradt (w:Georg Milbradt), chief negotiator for Germany's state governments, said that giving equal wages to the drivers in former East Germany would be extremely difficult. The accident occurred at Kindel Air Field, which is located south of Berlin (w:Berlin), near Eisenach (w:Eisenach). The aircraft involved was a Zlin Z-37 Cmelak (w:Zlin Z-37 Cmelak), a Czech (Czech Republic) built single-seater plane which had been used by authorities in former East Germany (w:East Germany) as a cropduster (w:cropduster). Host German Chancellor Angela Merkel reminisced that the end of the Cold War came as a total surprise. "The 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall should remind us all what incredible luck we had with the reunification of Europe and Germany," commented Merkel, who grew up in communist East Germany (w:East Germany), in Monday's edition of the ''Bild (w:Bild)'' newspaper.

been several television game shows based upon this game. To date, there have been four seasons of the British version of ''Cluedo'' (and a Christmas version that in fact shows some similarity to the North American movie), and there have been other versions in Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Portugal and Scandinavia. The format for each puts two teams (each usually containing one celebrity and one person with law enforcement research experience) against six in-character actors as the famed colour-coded suspects. There is a new murder victim every episode, who usually has it coming to them for one reason or another. In Eurasia Slate-producing regions in Europe include Wales (see slate industry in Wales), Cornwall (famously the village of Delabole), Cumbria (see Burlington Slate Quarries, Honister Slate Mine and Skiddaw Slate) in the United Kingdom; parts of France (Anjou, Ardennes, Brittany, Savoie); Belgium (Ardenne); Liguria in northern Italy, especially between the town of Lavagna (which means chalkboard in Italian (Italian language)) and Fontanabuona valley; Portugal especially around Valongo in the north of the country; Spain see Slate Industry in Spain; Germany's (Moselle River-region, Hunsrück, Eifel, Westerwald, Thuringia and north Bavaria); Alta, Norway (actually schist not a true slate) and Galicia (Galicia (Spain)). Some of the slate from Wales and Cumbria is colored slate (non-blue): purple and formerly green in Wales and green in Cumbria. China has vast slate deposits; in recent years its export of finished and unfinished slate has increased, it has slate in various colors. thumb upright Real Madrid (File:Trofeo original de la Copa de Europa.jpg) won the first five competitions, a consecutive record that still stands today.

of the Parliament of Norway (Stortinget). ;''Frei Schnauze'' : In Germany, this version entertained its audience with many similar games. The show started as a half-hour programme and expanded to one hour in 2006. The host of ''Frei Schnauze'' was the German comedian Dirk Bach. The show was hosted by RTL (RTL Television) until 2008. ;''Minus Manus'' : Norway had two separate shows based on the ''Whose Line'' concept. The first, ''Minus Manus,'' shown on Norwegian TV3 (TV3 (Norway)), was more or less identical in tone and form to the British show, but the second, ''Spinn'', shown on TVNorge had a slightly different set-up. Among other things, ''Spinn'' split the contestants into two competing teams (the green team and the orange team, both wearing appropriately-coloured T-shirts) and also heavily involved a rotating stage that provided scenery and props for the various improvised skits. Though the shows were completely separate, many of the contestants (such as Helén Vikstvedt), featured on both. ;''Shel Mi HaShura HaZot?'' (של מי השורה הזאת) : (Translation: ''Whose Line Is It?'') This is the Israeli version of the show.
