Into the Deep

Responsible for one of the most addictive rock riffs in history, Rock titans Deep Purple speak to Georja Calvin-Smith about their new album, choral singing and what's next for them. Also on the show: a taste of France in the Gulf. The Louvre's Abu Dhabi branch unveils a sample of its growing collection.

And in the week that the Paris opera celebrates its 300th anniversary, we meet some of the young ballerinas hoping to eventually dance with the stars.

Some of Deep Purple's 2013 Tour Dates:

30 May - Rabat, Morocco (Mawazinz festival)

25 July - Monte Carlo (Sporting)

13 August - Colmar  (Foire aux Vins)

20 October - Paris (Le Zénith).
