Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning and welcome to Monday. At 10.10 Morning Brew’s week begins, as usual, with Robbie McRobbie’s deep, and highly Insightful rugby report. At 10.40 we’ll catch up with columnist, author, and New York correspondent, Tracy Quan. At 12.10 we’re off to Vietnam for our bi-monthly check in with Bureau Chief-at-large, Neil Runcieman. He has a few newsworthy bits and pieces from Ho Chi Minh City for you today, to sugar coat the perennial COVID soap opera.
Welcome to Friday on Morning Brew, where relative normality returns after quite a week. At 10.40 today composer and conductor Colin Touchin will be with us for this week’s ‘classical’ music chat. He’ll return to his normal Wednesday slot next week. Today he wants to talk about how the musical greats interpreted the weather in their work. Topical indeed, with some wonderful musical examples too. After 11 Danny Hicks will be with us for more ‘Sports and All’. And, at 12.10 it’s Marshy Movie Time. Critic James Marsh brings you the week’s hits and misses in film. Join him and Danny on Facebook live.
