On the 26th of March this year a dream came true for Hugh Laurie. It was a dream born from a moment in his youth when he first heard Professor Longhair's album Live On The Queen Mary. Recorded in 1975, it was to change Longhair's life, catapulting him back into the limelight once again after years in the blues wilderness.

And as Hugh says "Ever since I heard a recording of that show - my life changed too." For it was at that moment that Laurie's musical journey began. "The hairs went up on the back of my neck and I knew this music was for me. Not one day has passed since then when I have not either listened to Professor Longhair's music, or to someone else singing his songs or tried to play them myself." "For me the second coming took place on the Queen Mary in 1975. My view of life, in fact my life, was shaped by the sounds and stories of Professor Longhair."

And now Hugh Laurie will mark the climax of his personal musical odyssey with a tribute to the man who is his greatest inspiration. He is joined by the legendary Copper Bottom Band in the exact same room, on the exact same stage where Longhair delivered his master class to put on a unique, once in a life time, unforgettable performance. Surrounded by the art deco grandeur of this extraordinary ship and featuring classic Longhair favourites "Tipitina" and "Mardi Gras In New Orleans," and Hugh's own renditions of blues classics such as "Staggerlee," "Junco Partner," "Kiss Of Fire" and "Wild Honey," this a show like no other.

8:30 p.m. | BrainChange with David Perlmutter, M.D.

BrainChange reveals the devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbohydrates on the human brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

His New York Times #1 best-selling book, Grain Brain, is the first book of its kind to explore the insidious role our highly touted low-fat, high-carb diets play in a host of neurological conditions. The vast majority of us don't realize that our seemingly "healthy" daily habits are silently aggravating our nervous systems and setting us up for serious brain ailments. BrainChange shows that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It's in the food you eat. Dr. Perlmutter, a leading international authority on nutritional medicine, has a disturbing yet empowering message: our brains are highly sensitive to certain proteins and sugars that are ubiquitous today-in our hand creams and organic ice creams, cocktails and coffees, multi-grain breads, whole fruits, and even brand name pharmaceuticals.

In BrainChange, he shows us how to prevent, treat, and reverse a wide array of brain-related disorders by eliminating specific foods from our diets and making smarter lifestyle choices. Dr. Perlmutter is the only doctor in the country who is both a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, making him uniquely suited to write this book and make this public television program. An in-demand expert for nationally syndicated radio and television programs, he has appeared on 20/20, CNN, Dr. Oz, Fox News, Good Morning America, The Today Show, and Oprah, among many outlets. Dr. Perlmutter also runs his own private practice, The Perlmutter Health Center, in Naples, Florida.
