CNN International: September Programming Highlights
Coming up on CNN International in-flight (Times are in GMT and CET and subject to change)
Derek Blasberg attends the most spectacular fashion and art events in the Italian summer calendar. In Sicily, he meets designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana who have decided to stage their four-day extravaganza of Haute Couture fashion shows in the place they call home. In Venice, the art world has descended for the Biennale. Here, we meet the most outspoken voices at the fair, from American Pavilion artist Mark Bradford to Ai Wei Wei, who worked with Venetian glassblowers on the island of Murano to create a politically charged installation. We also meet British actor Jeremy Irons. In a church adorned by the 16th century genius Paolo Veronese, he takes Derek to meet a team of restorers bringing Venice’s Sistine Chapel back to its full splendor.

He’s often referred to as the G.O.A.T, or the greatest of all time. At 40, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is playing better than ever, defying the limits of age in a sport known for its relentless athleticism and brutal take downs. This month, CNN’s Anna Coren sits down with the five-time Super Bowl champion on his first visit to China. She asks him about playing beyond 40, finding a partner in supermodel Gisele Bündchen and why it is so difficult for NFL players to address concussions in American football.

This month we focus on professional golf for the over 50s. Shane O’Donoghue makes his way to Wales to meet the likes of Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie. With better understanding of their minds and bodies as well as improvements in equipment, they are now hitting the ball longer than when they were in their so-called prime. Shane also travels to Ireland to catch up with two-time Major champion, Mark O’Meara. We look at why success for the American came relatively late in his life. Finally, Shane travels to Florida to meet two-time Major Champion, Nick Price. At McArthur Golf Club that Nick co-designed, we get his thoughts on his career after 50 and on the President’s Cup, where he will captain the International team against the US.
