Monday morning after a weekend of craziness, but we press on regardless, as James Ross sits in for Phil today. No rugby today as Robbie McRobbie takes a short break, but we do have William Nader, Director of Racing at the Hong Kong Jockey club (HKJC Racing), with the latest on the horses. Plus we focus on Italian food in Hong Kong, as part of the Italia Mia Festival. We'll be joined by Savio Pesavento of the Academy of Italian Cuisine and Dr Filippo Scevola of the University of Turin who'll tell us about the positive health benefits of a pinch of salt! After 11 the world of story-telling and we focus on a new opera-play called 'Anne & Zef' - about Anne Frank, victim of the Jewish Holocaust in World War II, and another young victim, Zef, killed in the Albanian war in the 90's. Composer Monique Krus, and conductor Vicky Shin will join us to tell all about the performance at Tai Kwun this weekend. Plus all that's best in music through until 1pm.

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.
