Catch it live:
Monday to Friday 9.30am - 1pm
Good morning and welcome to Fryday. Our first stop on today’s Morning Brew is San Francisco, where Chef Matthew Dolan will welcome you to his restaurant Twenty Five Lusk for a lesson in caviar and blinis. At 10.40 our friend David Costello, who is the Consul General of Ireland to Hong Kong and Macau, will tell you all about Gaelic Halloween. It’s called Samhain (pronounced “sown”), and is actually a festival in its own right marking the end of harvest, but over the years the lines have blurred somewhat. At 11.10 our luxury sport reporter Danny Hicks will bring you this week’s Sports and All. And, as it’s Friday, we’re off to the movies with critic James Marsh at 12.10, with reviews of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, The Witches, The Eight Hundred, and The Queen’s Gambit. Join us on Facebook live throughout.
