Women of Music: Jorane

ATV World

Classically trained cellist Jorane takes viewers on a journey where music knows no boundaries.

'When I was a teenager, I played classical guitar and folk guitar. I was the one who played guitar around the campfire. During a classical guitar performance in CEGEP [a post-secondary schools in Quebec, Canada], I discovered the cello,' she said.

Stunning performances with the well-known entertainment group Cirque du Soleil and technical musical exploration with the cello are some of the highlights of this programme.

Many women have claimed that they gave birth while listening to Jorane's albums.

Jorane's latest album, The You and the Now, features full-scale symphonic arrangements.

Survivor: Panama-Exile Island

Stranded on an island off the coast of Panama, 16 strangers must live together and compete for the US$1 million prize. This time, the castaways will begin their competition as four groups: older men, older women, younger men and younger women.

Each week, at least one Survivor will be banished to a separate island miles away from camp. How will this change the game? Who will outwit, outplay and outlast all others?

Separated by gender and age, the four groups meet host Jeff Probst on Exile Island.

There, he explains that each week, at least one Survivor will be forced to live on their own away from their tribe until they're allowed back into the game.

Pride and Prejudice

TVB Pearl

Two rich, eligible and handsome young bachelors gallop into Hertfordshire and into the lives of every hopeful young maiden and their ambitious mums in the neighbourhood.

Mr Bingley has bought Netherton Park and has brought his sisters and very wealthy friend, Mr Darcy, with him. To Mrs Bennet at Longbourn House they are the answer to her prayers. She has five daughters to marry and their dowries are not large.

They meet at a local Assembly Room Ball in Meryton. Mr Bingley soon proves to be a pleasant, agreeable man who is happy to dance with the local belles. He immediately takes a fancy to Jane, the eldest Miss Bennet, and she too is smitten although she is much too well-bred to show it. Mr Darcy and Miss Bingley, however, are too proud to join in. Their behaviour offends everyone, especially Elizabeth Bennet. She later overhears Darcy saying that she is 'tolerable' but 'not handsome enough to tempt' him. Photo courtesy of BBC
