In July, ‘CNN Business Traveller’ is at the Paris Air Show, finding out about the very latest in aviation technology and what the future might hold for the industry.
Host Richard Quest takes a look around the show’s shopping area, where everything from engines, wheels, ejector seats, missiles, jets, helicopters and simulators are being showcased and sold.
Also this month, Quest is at London Heathrow Airport, where a Virgin Atlantic engineer takes him on a guided tour of one of the airline’s planes, inside and out, explaining the mechanics and science behind how these huge machines work. Quest also meets Virgin Atlantic’s new CEO, Craig Kreeger, to hear about his strategy and vision for the company going forward, and the airline’s newly launched ‘Little Red’ domestic service.
‘CNN Business Traveller’ also visits the Rolls Royce engine factory in Derby, England, where they monitor all their engines currently flying in real time. And, offering a rather unusual insight in to the future of aviation, CNN’s Ayesha Durgahee looks at what’s next in the development of on-board toilets.@RichardQuest @AyeshaDurgahee edition.cnn.com/businesstraveller

The residents of the Hogewey complex in Weesp, the Netherlands never know exactly where they are, but they always feel right at home. And that’s precisely the idea. The cutting-edge village, located just outside Amsterdam, was built to house elderly patients suffering from severe dementia who don’t want to live out their final years in a nursing home.
The small village has all the amenities – a grocery store, barber shop, library – just like any other village. But here, every worker is a paid professional, on site to care for the residents in their daily lives. Some staffers live in the homes, assisting residents in cooking meals, organising social events, helping them take baths. Other employees include social workers, who make daily rounds to check in on their patients.
‘World’s Untold Stories: Dementia Village’ follows CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, as he travels to the complex, to tell one of the world’s most compelling untold stories. He speaks with one of the founders at Hogewey, Yvonne van Amerongen, to get the real story of how the project got started. Gupta also spends time with village residents as they go about their day, from sunrise to sunset, engaging with them as they cook meals, socialise, and run errands.
Dementia is a growing concern around the globe. According to a new report by the World Health Organisation, the number of people suffering from dementia is expected to double by 2030 and to triple by 2050. The increase comes as governments everywhere struggle to contain the runaway costs of health care.edition.cnn.com/CNNI/Programs/untoldstories @drsanjaygupta
On this month’s ‘Open Court’ – the afterglow of a fortnight to remember. Andy Murray is the first British men’s singles champion to win the tennis world’s most prestigious prize since Fred Perry. The show travels to Murray’s home town of Dunblane, Scotland to talk with Judy Murray –the woman who taught Andy and his brother Jamie how to play tennis. Viewers will find out how Dunblane is reacting to his first ever Wimbledon victory; hear from the man himself, and witness the media crush that met him on the day after his historic win.
Sticking with Wimbledon, the programme meets this year’s doubles champions, Bob & Mike Bryan. ‘Open Court’ catches up with the brothers in London and is introduced to Bob’s baby daughter, Micaela, who has her own tennis twitter account! See what the toddler is tweeting and hear why she’s the Bryan Brothers secret weapon on tour.
Also on the show, 2002 Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt chats with fellow Wimbledon winner, ‘Open Court’ host Pat Cash on the sidelines of The All England Club. Plus, the greatest golfer of all time, Jack Nicklaus, tells Cash why tennis is one of his favourite sports.cnn.com/opencourt
