In Sicily, he meets designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana who have decided to stage their four-day extravaganza of Haute Couture fashion shows in the place they call home. In Venice, the art world has descended for the Biennale. Here, we meet the most outspoken voices at the fair, from American Pavilion artist Mark Bradford to Ai Wei Wei, who worked with Venetian glassblowers on the island of Murano to create a politically charged installation. We also meet British actor Jeremy Irons. In a church adorned by the 16th century genius Paolo Veronese, he takes Derek to meet a team of restorers bringing Venice’s Sistine Chapel back to its full splendor.

CNNi Living Golf - SeptLiving Golf

This month we focus on professional golf for the over 50s. Shane O’Donoghue makes his way to Wales to meet the likes of Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie. With better understanding of their minds and bodies as well as improvements in equipment, they are now hitting the ball longer than when they were in their so-called prime. Shane also travels to Ireland to catch up with two-time Major champion, Mark O’Meara. We look at why success for the American came relatively late in his life. Finally, Shane travels to Florida to meet two-time Major Champion, Nick Price. At McArthur Golf Club that Nick co-designed, we get his thoughts on his career after 50 and on the President’s Cup, where he will captain the International team against the US.
