‘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

What is premium content and how will you VP it?
Premium content is the story of how we live our lives. Areas like Style, Travel, Health, and Entertainment are reflections of our collective tastes. They speak volumes about who we are right now, and how we're willing to spend our time and money. There's a lot to learn from the successes of CNN Politics and CNNMoney, and I'm excited to be part of the team that applies those lessons to premium content. FULL POST

My Happy Place – *NEW SERIES*
Series starts Tuesday 12 July within ‘News Stream at’ 1300 BST / 1400 CET and within ‘International Desk’ at 1700 BST / 1800 CET
Launching in July, ‘My Happy Place’ is a new monthly series on CNN International which features personalities from the worlds of business, media, design and sport who reveal their favourite place or space, which helps give them peace of mind.
The first in the series features actor and filmmaker, Edward Norton (pictured), who introduces a place close to his heart as a conservationist: the ‘Campi ya Kanzi’ in Kenya.
Since visiting the safari lodge for the first time in 2000, Norton reveals to ‘My Happy Place’ the reasons why he’s returned every year since.
Led by a Massai community, Campi ya Kanzi only allow 16 people into the 340 thousand acre area at a time, allowing for virtual solitude alongside roaming elephants, giraffes and lions.
CNN's Fareed Zakaria hosts a special, updated presentation of WHY THEY HATE US tonight on CNN/U.S. and CNN International at 9:00pm Eastern.
“Why do they hate us?” has been the question asked since the 9/11 attacks 15 years ago – and again in the wake of horrific attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida last week. What makes seemingly ordinary people turn against America - and against their own countrymen - to commit murderous attacks? Zakaria explores the roots of the rage – and challenges experts, religious scholars, policy influencers, and even those who say they want to kill us – for answers to whether America can do anything to stop the bloodshed.
Zakaria also explores why modernity is perceived by violent jihadis as a threat to Islam to be met with bloodshed – including violence against other Muslims – in a new editorial, "Why they hate us."
At 1:00pmET on CNN/U.S., a special edition of CNN’s FAREED ZAKARIA GPS features a wide-ranging discussion with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin on the subjects of U.S.-Russian relations, the European Union, the 2016 U.S. election, the extended conflicts in Ukraine and Syria, and doping allegations against Russian athletes hoping to go to the 2016 Olympic Games.
Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi discusses the potential 'permanent' impact on Europe for a potential 'Brexit' vote; and Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev discusses the possibility of a female president in his country in the future.
This wide-ranging discussion encores today on both CNN/U.S. and CNN International. Please check here for additional airtimes across CNN's broadcast networks: http://edition.cnn.com/tv/schedule/europe

CNN was awarded the prestigious Golden Nymph Award from the Monte Carlo Television Festival for its news coverage of Baltimore in 2015. CNN’s coverage encompassed the unrest in the city after the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody. Gray’s death ignited protests as debate surged nationwide over whether police use excessive force, particularly against African-Americans. CNN correspondent Miguel Marquez, who led CNN’s coverage from Baltimore, accepted the award last night in Monte Carlo.
