Williamsd Upfront Guests 6 and 7 July

Media Alert: Williams Up Front

Wednesday & Thursday at 8.00pm,

SKY News Australia New Zealand, (SKY Channel 54)
Williams Up Front immediately precedes the SKY News screening of 3News at 8.30pm

Award winning broadcaster, Larry Williams, deals to current affairs in a straightforward and provocative manner. His "no spin" approach cuts through the rhetoric as he interviews the newsmakers and experts of the moment:

Wednesday 6 July - Cornucopia of Literary Delights

David Bodanis taught a survey of intellectual history at the University of Oxford for many years.

A frequent adviser to Shell's scenario unit on long-term technological trends, he has also worked on innovation and scenarios with many top companies. In his bestselling E=mc2, David Bodanis led us through the world's most famous equation. Now, with Electric Universe, he illuminates the wondrous yet invisible force that permeates our universe-and introduces us to the virtuoso scientists who plumbed its secrets.

Also Tammy Bruce - self-proclaimed lesbian pro-choice feminist , ex-president of the Los Angeles chapter of NOW and author of "The New Thought Police", and "The Death of Right and Wrong" argues that multiculturalism, identity politics and "relativism" have turned American society into a "moral vacuum" incapable of distinguishing right from wrong.
Guests: Authors, David Bodanis & Tammy Bruce

Thursday 6 July - The Lions Test Series - Damp Squib or Damp Squib

Mick Cleary of the Daily Telegraph gives us his perspective on this Lions tour -how he's seen it, how it's been perceived back home.

Also joining us on the show is Philip Evans, Chairman of the Wales Tourist Board - from one small rugby obsessed nation to another - the parallels, the passion!

Guests: Mick Cleary, of the Daily Telegraph, and Philip Evans, Chairman of the Wales Tourist Board
