Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. We’ll begin at 10.10 with our weekly rugby report from Robbie McRobbie. Today he reports live from Scotland...where it will be 2 in the morning. He’s currently wide awake wondering what he’d do if he ever suffered from insomnia. At 10.40 (for this week) Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us for his regular eco-bit. The Royal Commonwealth Society is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year with...a cricket match, in fact the Commonwealth Cricket Cup, this coming weekend. Its Chairman Peter Mann joins us after 11. At 12.10 we welcome Nanjing based British artist Bill Aitchison to the programme. He’ll tell you all about his current exhibition here called Quick Fix.
Welcome to Fryday on Morning Brew. We’re off to Durban, South Africa at 10.10 to catch up with Chef Jason Black Empire HK. Today he wants to talk about the “science” of bread making. At 11.10 we welcome back Conductor and Music Director Bethan Clark, who next Monday will be directing what promises to be a huge and very moving event at St. John’s Cathedral: "The Art of War-A Choral Response to a Century of Conflict". It will feature a cast of over a hundred singers, musicians, and actors, with all profit going to Medecins Sans Frontieres. At 11.40 we meet world renowned pianist Geoffrey Lancaster who’s here to perform an all Mozart programme on a collection of eighteenth century fortepianos, including Australia’s “First Fleet Piano”, the first instrument to arrive there in 1788. We’re off to the movies after 12 with MB critic James Marsh, who'll be reviewing Overlord and Patrick. Join us on Facebook Live. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
