It's Wednesday on Morning Brew, and that must mean it's time for you to be a...spy for a day...of course. At 10.40 we meet Bill Sims, a man with one of those security service pasts that would mean instant death for all of us if revealed here. These days, however, he runs the most imaginative role playing operation in town. At 11.10 we welcome conductor Jerome Hoberman to talk about The Hong Kong Bach Choir's upcoming performance of Mozart's last complete mass (the famous Requiem wasn't finished, and has a mysterious story all of its own for another day), the Great Mass in C minor. As usual he's programmed a couple of other quite unexpected works too in "Music Of Love and Freedom". RTL France's man in Hong Kong, Philippe Dova will be with us at 11.40 with this week's goings-on and the best chansons this side of Madagascar....which is where he actually is this morning. Pilates Athlete Jason Clark has twisted something today, so he'll be back next week.
On today's Morning Brew, we begin with something coincidentally very topical. Apart from being the best selling author of "Attack State Red", and after a distinguished British Army career, our first guest also worked for COBR, a body we are hearing a lot about in the news this week. Colonel Richard Kemp CBE joins us at 10.40. At 11.10, we'll find out about...snow rugby in Finland! Manager of The Polar Bears, Totti Karpela will tell us more. After 11.30 Rtl France's Philippe Dova will be here, this time with a special guest. We're joined today by the famous French actor, director, and writer Jaques Weber. We'll see Wednesday off after 12 with The Pilates Athlete, Jason Clark. Join us on Facebook Live. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
