It's another wet Wednesday on Morning Brew and what better way to celebrate than by talking Monster Fish, but only after we start at 9.05 with another musical journey. Our first song today was chosen yesterday by Jarrod Watt. All you have to do is see if you can connect it in any way at all to another song of your choosing. And so on. At 10.10 we meet Zeb Hogan, one of the world’s most famous ecologists and marine photographers. Zeb also stars in the National Geographic TV show Monster Fish. At 11.10 from somewhere in darkest America, we catch up with our USA politics guy (and author of the Custom Maid series) Peter Dekrassel. After The Don’s successful stand-up tour to the UK, there now seems so be a lot of quoting of Section 3 of the US constitution going on. You know, the bit about treason. Philippe Dova can't be with us today. He'll be back next week. At 12.10 the one and only Pilates Athlete Jason Clark returns after his holiday. Join us on Facebook Live.
Join Annalie Chow for a new Saturday morning series – Legally Speaking. Annalie – herself a student of the law – delves into the background of some of Hong Kong’s most contentious current affairs issues, and explains them from the perspective of our legal system. Consumer protection, efforts to combat the trade in endangered species, the high-speed rail co-location plan: all will be examined with the help of expert guests and commentators. The first of the series – on July 14 – looks into the controversy surrounding ride-sharing services, in particular, Uber. ( Saturdays 8.30am – 9am.)
The end of the Second World War ushered in a long period of ideological confrontation between the former Soviet Union and the West. With global tensions again on the rise, we'll be tracing the history of this decades-long struggle for supremacy, marked by espionage, proxy wars and the ever-present fear of nuclear missiles. Cold War - Stories From the Big Freeze features the voices of those who lived through this dramatic period. This 15-part BBC series continues on Sunday evening at 6.45. In this week's programme, Bridget Kendall tells the story of the development of the hydrogen bomb .
Backchat is on a transmission break from July 9 until August 31. The programme will resume on September 3, with presenter Hugh Chiverton in the chair, accompanied by a series of regular co-hosts.
