1.00 The globe trotter
Choreographer Jeremy Nelson has always taken steps in different directions. Unlike some dancers, he headed abroad to learn his art in London.

1.20 The Art of Etiquette – Wine tasting
We’re delving into the culinary arts for this episode. How do you hold a stemless wine glass? Should I taste white or red first? Will the fragrance I’m wearing impact the smell of the wine? Zoe George stomps the grape with Lance Redgewell from Cambridge Road Winery.
1.40 Celebrating Italy’s national day
