"My early experience as a musician was in folk clubs and I have a great affection for it. On The Last Ship, I wanted the music to reflect the area. Northumbrian music traditions are very strong and there was massive Scottish immigration in the 19th Century. Then came the Irish and I was brought up in an Irish community."

Continuing on the quest begun in his previous projects, Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. takes viewers along for the journey with a celebrity pair bound together by an intimate, sometimes hidden link, while he treks through layers of ancestral history, uncovers secrets and surprises of their family trees and shares life-altering discoveries. Each hour-long episode includes profiles of famous people like John Legend, Sanjay Gupta and Condoleeza Rice, and you are taken to location with leading US genealogists, DNA diagnosticians, and ancestry experts from around the world as Gates and his production team reveal unknown histories and relatives the guests never knew existed.

A musical inspired by Sting's early years on Tyneside has been given a Broadway opening date. The Royal Navy's new toy, HMS Queen Elizabeth, will not join the fleet until 2020 but a significant theatrical vessel has just left port and has a berth on Broadway in the autumn. Sting's musical, The Last Ship, is nearing the end of an encouraging run at the Bank of America Theatre in Chicago. This is the try-out, the equivalent of the sea trials. Far better to get a show watertight than launch it on Broadway's rough seas where a shark-like critic can send it to the bottom, Titanic-style. That has been the costly fate of many a new musical, in Britain and the States. And while Chicago is hardly 'the sticks', it is some way from the New York street where theatrical success shines most brightly. The Last Ship, which has been a labour of love for Sting, closes next weekend at the Bank of America Theatre...

They are calling it a new Broadway musical. But that is a misnomer. Sting's "The Last Ship," which received its much-anticipated world premiere in Chicago on Wednesday night, is an old-fashioned grand opera of the most eloquent sort - awash in both turbulent emotions and intimate dramatic gestures. A true masterwork, it not only keens a ravishing dirge for a lost way of life, and the indomitable spirit of the working class as it continues to stagger through this post-industrial age. But as it spins an eternal tale of the tensions between fathers and sons (and yes, a "holy ghost" of sorts, too), as well as the ardor and disappointments of love, the opposing pull of home and "away," and the need for some form of faith along with ennobling work, it magnifies the human heartbeat, and captures a genuine sense of the yearning that keeps people going...
