Welcome to Thursday on Morning Brew. Commentator Steve Vines will be with us after 10 for his weekly look at the news and ... stuff. At 11.10 we’ll find out about a wonderful fund raising challenge called HIKE FOR FREEDOM. Hikers Joe Lodder and Catherine Cormack, who both live on Lantau, are currently in the process of a four day hike over 300km in distance with 18,600m of elevation. The message is simple; people should be free and animals shouldn’t be abandoned. Catherine and Joe are raising money for two wonderful charities; STOP trafficking of people, and TAILS Lantau. We’ll catch them mid-journey this morning. After 11.30 our weekly house call with vet Dr. David Gething. Today is very topical (geddit?), as he’ll talk about vaccinations. And, after 12 we welcome back Maestro JC Viens, for some wine talk, live from Italy.
Good morning and welcome to Wednesday. We have a musical start today. On this date in 1756 the world's most famous composer, to us anyway, was born. But, was he so famous during his own lifetime? Was he the "musical Christ"? as Tchaikovsky later said? Was he plain "nuts"? And, interestingly, as others have suggested over the years, was his sister actually the real musical one of the family? Composer and conductor Colin Touchin is back with us at 10.10 to address these points, and wish Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus... Mozart, a happy birthday. After 11.30 we welcome RTL France's man in Hong Kong, Philippe Dova, for more French sounds, and... le news. At 12.10 today, our weekly visit to Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central. Of course, join Chris on Facebook live with your questions, which he'll answer straight away with the odd demo thrown in for good measure.
