Welcome to the all important Friday on Morning Brew. It’s the day of the week when we treat you to all the best in sports and film. Our team of crack experts is in the wings warming up as I speak. Danny Hicks is first up at 11.10 with this week’s edition of Sports and All. And, after 12 we’re off to the movies with MB critic James Marsh, reviewing The French Dispatch, The Power of the Dog, and The Electrical Life of Louis Wain. Marshy and Danny will be on Facebook live as usual, and they’d both love you to join them there with your comments and questions.
Welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. Steve Vines gets things going at 10.10 with our regular look at those, who look at us through rose tinted spectacles. In the news this week we heard that the Emperor's New Arts Hub will cost as whole lot more to complete than originally projected. In a related story, we also found out that tonight...it will be dark. This is plainly the fault of all those naughty "radicals" filibustering in Legco. Also the organisers of Occupy Central say they will consider stepping down if fewer than 100,000 people vote in an unofficial referendum on political reform. So there! Nuh! Obviously the LSD's fault too. After 11, we meet Jeremy Lin, who at the age of 17, is a fully fledged Hollywood script writer. We'll find out how he used “Kickstarter” to raise funds for his movie, and how he has invited Hong Kong star Alan Tam to be the Executive Producer. At 11.40, HK Phil member and artistic Director of the multi instrumental crossover group "Shaolin Fez", Sam Ferrer will tell us about his upcoming gig “Shaolin Paradiso” with Special Guests, “SOLER” from Macau. At 12.10, one of the world's true "A-list" concert pianists Emanuel Ax will talk about his life, work and his upcoming performance of Beethoven's magnificent 4th Piano concerto, with the Hong Kong Philharmonic.
