From January 2010 onward, a new regular framing segment was added to Sesamstrasse, centering on Wolle in a control room, acting as a bridge to other elements of the show. Wolle has to start the episode, cue the segments, and end the show. Of course things don't always go smoothly, and his unseen boss has problems telling Wolle what to do.
