‘Winning Post’ in July, hosted by Aly Vance (pictured) examines the heartlands of racing, questioning what it is that sets Ascot, Chantilly and Newmarket apart.

The five days of Royal Ascot attract racing enthusiasts from around the globe and, whilst it has never claimed to be a ‘Heartland of Racing’ as such, it is considered by most to be the most prestigious meet of the year.

A national institution, with Queen Elizabeth II in attendance every day, Vance examines how Royal Ascot became the centrepiece of the British social calendar and a spectacle of fashion and style. FULL POST

As the Formula E season concludes in July, ‘Supercharged’, hosted by Nicki Shields (pictured, left), is at the heart of the action as the all-electric motorsport championship is decided by a two-race weekend in London’s Battersea Park.

With just one point between the top two contenders for the second season trophy, this episode of ‘Supercharged’ features both drivers as they prepare for the ultimate showdown.

Brazilian driver Lucas Di Grassi (pictured, right) demonstrates the Formula E Simulator – an important exercise in getting to know the Battersea track before the weekend’s racing, as drivers are unable to practice in advance of the race.

‘Supercharged’ also hears from Sebastien Buemi, who is just one point behind in the driver standings. The Swiss driver explains the art of overtaking in Formula E to the programme, with Buemi seeking to overtake his rivals on the track in Battersea and catch Di Grassi on the driver leaderboard.

Over the course of a season, Formula E transports 200 tonnes over 51000 km – and the sport does this while trying to maintain its green credentials. ‘Supercharged’ examines the logistics of the sport speaking to Formula E’s CEO Alejandro Agag, plus logistics manager Pier-Luigi Ferrari, who explains the size and scale of the operation.

Shields is chauffeured to the London races in full electric style: Mahindra drivers Nick Heidfeld and Bruno Senna pick her up in an E2O car and drive her across London to make it to Battersea Park.

At the circuit, ‘Supercharged’ hears from Sir Richard Branson, who owns the DS Virgin team. Branson tells the programme why electric cars are part of the future of our cities, and why he is such an advocate of Formula E.

One of Branson’s drivers, British-born Sam Bird, takes Shields on a track walk of the Battersea circuit, to explain his strategy for the race. Fighting to hold 3rd place, Bird has everything to drive for on home soil.

In June, ‘The Circuit’ reflects on the first Grand Prix in Baku, Azerbaijan, before looking ahead to the rest of the European season, and the Austrian Grand Prix.

Away from the track, host Amanda Davies (pictured, right) takes in a cookery lesson from keen chef, Haas driver Romain Grosjean (pictured, left) in Geneva, Switzerland.

Grosjean speaks about his debut season with Haas, and reflects on his early point-scoring results in the first two races. Davies and Grosjean prepare an everyday meal for a Formula One driver, and discuss the dietary requirements of racing at the highest level.

‘The Circuit’ also meets famed circuit designer, Hermann Tilke. With 11 Tilke-designed tracks on the Formula One calendar this year, the designer explains what makes a good modern circuit, and reveals the challenges of constructing a racetrack in the heart of historical Baku.

‘The Circuit’ looks ahead to the Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring in the company of the nation’s greatest-ever driver and three-time World Champion, Niki Lauda.

CNN International's acclaimed cook-centric programme, ‘Culinary Journeys’ continues in June. The only chef in Scandinavia to be awarded three Michelin stars, Esben Holmboe Bang, takes CNN’s cameras on a voyage of discovery through the landscape and cuisine of Norway.

Scandinavia has become known the world over for leading a fine dining revolution, and Holmboe Bang is part of the culinary vanguard. Though born in Denmark, the chef has adopted Norway as his home, where he seeks to uncover and share flavours buried in the country’s forests and fjords.

Holmboe Bang’s restaurant in Oslo, Maaemo – meaning “Mother Earth” in old Norse – is a tribute to local organic produce where each plate is crafted to reflect the seasons.

As part of his culinary journey, Holmboe Bang travels from his kitchen in Oslo to Nordskot, a small fishing village 300 kilometres inside the Arctic Circle to explore Norway’s biggest treasure: the sea.

Under the midnight sun, he forages along the rugged coastline and dives for clams and urchins with fisherman Roderick Sloan, a key supplier to some of the world’s best restaurants. Holmboe Bang also learns more about the traditional preservation techniques which are essential to locals who endure the harsh winter months.

This journey culminates in a traditional meal with friends and family back in Oslo: a celebration of nature and the best of Norway’s culinary culture and hospitality.

Italian fashion designer Valentino Garavani once dubbed the “Last Emperor”, and his partner Giancarlo Giametti have created a new version of the Opera “La Traviata” which takes to the stage at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma. The performance is directed by Academy Award winning director, Sofia Coppola and features costumes designed by Valentino’s Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli.

The current scale and pace of urbanisation is unprecedented in human history – by 2050 it is estimated that 70 per cent of the world’s population will like in cities. Cities use three quarters of the world’s energy whilst also producing two thirds of the greenhouse gases. Pressure on services, infrastructure and resources is already massive and will only continue to grow. FULL POST
