The highly anticipated six-parter 'Black Bird' is premiering this Friday on Apple TV+. Inspired by actual events, a high school football hero is sentenced to 10 years in prison, where he is given the choice... of a lifetime! Here Alyson Hau is chatting to stars Sepideh Moafi and Greg Kinnear. Join her 'BackStage' in the Common Room (9.05pm to 10pm every weekday) this week, as she meets other members of the cast and crew of this riveting new drama.
On Tuesday's 123 Show we're chatting with Benita Chick, the CEO and founder of Encompass HK, a social enterprise that promotes diversity and inclusion. Benita joins us at 1.30 to talk about their free Sustainable Development Goals programme for local students. The goals were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and with the hope that by 2030 all people would enjoy peace and prosperity. After 2, Andrew Dembina talks about the dish that's considered the champion of US theme parks in his global food and drinks report. After 2.30, our weekly "Two for 2" music feature. This week we'll hear two versions of the same song from different decades.

Welcome to Tuesday on Morning Brew. After a Covid-inspired break from proceedings, Jarrod Watt has risen, and he will be back with us this morning, live from Melbourne. In the words of a random Australian wag, “we are not here to… erm, ‘associate romantically’ with spiders!”. Wise words indeed, as today he’ll be talking about some very nasty ones that are set to invade Sydney homes. That at 10.40, plus all the rest of the Aussie news that’s fit to broadcast, and three great new tracks. At 11.40 Dr. Merrin Pearse will be with us once again, live from Wellington, New Zealand. Today he’s joined by Shaun Martin, who runs the Hong Kong end of the wonderful City Nature Challenge. After 12 it's back to Melbourne to meet up with biz futurist Morris Miselowski. The English travel industry pioneer Thomas Cook organised his first package tour today in...1841. Incredible, since most of us probably didn't realise he actually existed, much less in the mid 19th century. Morris will be talking about all sorts things to do with the future of holidays and travel today.
Every weekday evening from 6.30 until 9, Simon Willson will share his choice of the best in international music with you, here on Radio 3. He’s partial to playing a few of your requests too, so do get in touch during the show on 2338 8266. As night time approaches, whatever you may be doing, if you’re a serious music fan then Sunset Sounds With Simon Willson is the programme for you.
Take a trip back in time with Peter King, every weekday evening from 10pm until 1am, in "Pete's Magical Mystery Tour", here on Radio 3. He'll give you the first two hours of pop gold from the 1960s and 1970s, and then after 12 you can go with him on a 'Sentimental Journey' for an hour of music from a different era. An era of the big bands, classic ballads, wonderful cinema, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Glenn Miller, and some of the greatest love stories ever told in music.
