Television: Fellow Travellers series

This intense romance/political thriller follows the risky, volatile and steamy relationship between the charismatic and ambitious Hawk and the pious and idealistic Tim, two political staffers who fall in love during the height of McCarthyism in the 1950s. An 8-part mini-series, it’s based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Thomas Mallon, and stars Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey

Album:  Romanticism, from Hana Vu

This is the second album from LA based indie rock/pop singer-songwriter Hana Vu. With a plush sound from synths and guitar, and upbeat personal songs showcasing her great vocal range, it’s a more confident album and one to settle back and enjoy.
