What else does Berlin have to offer besides tech?

As IFA 2018 begins, filmmakers James Barber and Hollie Hayton explore Berlin's cultural side in partnership with Philips TV.

While the masses gather at IFA, Europe's biggest technology show, to fondle the latest and greatest gadgets, film makers James Barber and Hollie Hayton have been finding out what else Berlin has to offer besides lust-worthy tech and seemingly endless supplies of currywurst. 

Find wide-mouthed gawping and plenty of historical facts about the Reichstag, Berlin Cathedral and Brandenburg Gate in the video below.  

Of course, James and Hollie will also be visiting IFA itself. Look out for more video shenanigans from the pair over the next few days as they explore IFA in partnership with Philips TV. 

Expect their takes on the latest tech from press day and their favourite gadgets from the labyrinthine halls of the Messe Berlin. There might even be an Ambilight TV or two in there to gawk at too.

The resulting 90-second 4K video and documentary are spectacular pieces of desert eye-candy that are well worth a watch.
