Fine Music Radio is broadcasting an exciting series of lectures co-ordinated by the University of Cape Town’s Centre for Extra-Mural Studies. The Fine Minds series aims to bring the intellectual stimulation of the centre’s busy annual Summer School directly to the armchair listener. Fifteen distinguished speakers over three years – including JM Coetzee and William Kentridge – will cover a wide range of topics. Fine Minds has been made possible by a grant from the Andrew W Mellon Foundation and will be repeated on Thursday afternoon just after the 1pm news.
