Zadanie 5.
Welcome to the programme. Have you ever found anything extraordinary? There are people who have. Let’s hear about some of them.

A researcher has discovered the oldest known recipe for German sausage that is nearly 600 years old. According to the guidelines, sausage makers had to use only the purest, unspoiled meat and had to pay a fine of a day’s wages if they did not. Medieval town markets in Germany had committees charged with monitoring the quality of produce. The discovery shows that there were already consumer protection laws in the Middle Ages.

An old man has been reunited with the wallet he lost in 1962 after it was handed in to a police station. Ron Russell, aged 81, was amazed to see the wallet – complete with photos of his children, his old pals and his dog. It even contained a letter from his employer and a garage receipt. His wife Pauline told us it really was a blast from the past.

A student who often bought things at a flea market learned she had been sitting on a small fortune when she found a baroque painting hidden inside her couch. The artwork fetched 20,000 euros at an auction after the student discovered it hidden between the folding sections of the couch which she had paid 150 euros for last year. Experts believe the work was painted between 1605 and 1610 by an unknown artist.

British marine experts have found what they claim is a world first six-legged octopus. They have christened it Henry. The sea animal, which has two limbs fewer than a normal octopus, is the only one of its kind. It is believed to be the result of a birth defect rather than an accident. Henry was discovered in a lobster pot off the north coast of Wales two weeks ago.

A painting found dumped on a New York street has fetched $1 million at an auction nearly 20 years after disappearing from a warehouse in Texas. A 1970 work by a Mexican artist, had been saved by Elizabeth Gibson, who spotted it in a pile of rubbish while going out to buy her morning coffee. Ms Gibson will receive a reward for returning it to its rightful owners, plus a percentage of the auction price.
