With Andy Goulding THE One is single number four from Kylie Minogue's X album, and is a welcome breath of fresh air. It's more glittery than an explosion in a sequin factory and shimmers like the world's biggest disco ball. This is a song that perfectly suits Kylie, pictured below, in 2008. The One is mixed and written by the Freemason's (featuring Russell Small of Phats and Small) and was originally recorded two years ago by a dance group called Laid. This techno- pop ditty is a...

By Tim Cornwell He got his first taste of the capital's festivals in 1965 - now Brian Cox is putting aside his film-making to support an international strand, he tells Tim Cornwell WITH a peaked cap scrunched down over plain glasses, inconspicuously sipping a skinny latte in a Fringe venue cafe, Brian Cox is barely given a second glance by the waitress. He shows no signs of being the film star whose many roles include the sinister intelligence chief Ward Abbott in the three Bourne films,...

By Simon Price Her songs, those perfect, radio-friendly hit singles, span decades - and now Minogue reinvents herself as the ultimate 21st- century girl Rock Kylie SECC GLASGOW Black Kids Concorde 2 BRIGHTON People ask the silliest questions. For example, why is a grown man of 40 wasting his intellect writing about something as trivial as pop music? The answer I always give is that pop is the highest of the arts, because it encompasses all the others. As well as music...

By MAL VINCENT By Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot FOR THOSE WHO SAY they don't make them like they used to, "The Children of Huang Shi" is proof otherwise. It's a throwback to the kind of personal epics that dealt with big, historical happenings in heroic ways. It has a hero who never kills anyone, even though he is in the midst of a world that is about to go to war. Set in China in 1937, it occurs during the Japanese invasion, beginning in Shanghai and continuing during the Japanese...

By John Beifuss It's certainly easy to take potshots at "The Children of Huang Shi." It's another film in which a white person proves to be the savior of the members of an apparently less fortunate race. It's solemn and old-fashioned. And its lead couple - Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Radha Mitchell - don't exactly blaze with star power. But why scoff at a movie about unselfish heroism? "Huang Shi" never achieves the emotional impact or excitement one might expect from a based-on-a-true-story...
