Today on Morning Brew we're off down under at 10.10 with our favourite radio bogan Jarrod Watt, for our weekly look at what’s occurring in Australia. This week: The High Court ponders the citizenship of 7 members of Parliament, the same sex marriage debate continues to bring hilarious headlines, and there's a high powered bunch of Aussie sports people in China today hoping to start a new era in sport. At 10.40 we catch up with MB’s tame environator Dr. Merrin Pearse. After 11.30 it's Russian opera time. As you do. From St. Petersburg's Elena Obratzova Academy we meet Mezzo Soprano Diana El, and Bass Lev Voronow who are performing here tomorrow. After 12 it’s movies of a different kind, as today in 1888, Thomas Edison filed a patent for the Optical Phonograph. Business Futurist Morris Miselowski will take that wherever he will.

Today on Morning Brew we jump right in at 9.40 with our first guest, film maker and co-producer of the Oscar winning "Moonlight", Andrew Hevia. Andrew is here this week for Filmart, and has his own very special Hong Kong story as well. After 10, we're off to New York to catch up with correspondent Tracy Quan. This week she brings us a snow storm update and a look at the life of a New York treasure, writer Christopher Gray who died a few days ago. After 11, movies of a different kind, as we "beware the Ides of March" with historian Sam Ho, who once again joins us from the USA. At 11.40 a chat with top US funny man Dwayne Perkins, who returns to Hong Kong this weekend with the TakeOut Comedy guys. The shirt stays firmly on after the news at 12, as the Pilates Athlete is busy this week. Normal exposure returns next Wednesday. (9:30am-1pm, ,email firstname.lastname@example.org )
