Good morning. Welcome to Wednesday. It's 'classical' music day on Morning Brew. Maestro Colin Touchin will be with us at 10.40 to tell you all about one of the most famous composing prizes in musical history. It's called the Prix de Rome, but hardly anyone really knows the test pieces that these guys had to write as their submissions. Of course Colin will fill in the quavers and crotchets for you today, and play you some wonderful music in the process. At 11.10, live from Tokyo, RTL France's Asia correspondent Philippe Dova with be back, with more classic French hits of summer. And, after 12 it's time for our weekly visit to Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central, to talk about preventing what's called 'pain catastrophising'. Join him on Facebook live to watch the demos and ask any questions you may have.
Good morning. Our first stop on today's Morning Brew is Vietnam, for a little 'Bureau Chief Extra'. It's Ho Chi Minh's birthday today (1890), and who better to fill us in on what's going on there today, than Neil Runcieman. Join him on Facebook live. After 11 our vet Dr. David Gething will be with us for this week's house call. Today we have cats fighting, then not, then fighting again, then being best mates, despite the odd bit of blood between friends. He loves answering your real-time questions, so do get in touch. A couple of months ago we found out about a brilliant competition for children, which is all about writing a script for a video game. It’s called ‘From Player To Page’, and organiser Simon Engerer will be back at 11.40 to tell you how it's all going. At 12.10, a new era in MB relations begins, as for the first time we'll catch up with Chef Neil Tomes, live from his new home... Singapore.
