On Friday's Backchat, are we too tough on young people? A recent survey suggested that 10% of pupils suffer from serious depression - and there are frequent calls to reduce exam and academic pressure, not least through reforming the TSA. Outside school there are long hours of homework, extra classes and little free or play time. Are kids missing out on a happy childhood? Does it matter? Will they have to learn to fight for a place in an increasingly competitive society? Call us on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, protecting wetland in Pui O, Lantau.

On Friday's Backchat, will we have enough doctors? A report claims there will be a shortage of 4000 people in nine healthcare professions by 2030, with a shortfall of 1000 doctors and 1600 nurses. Is the report right? What about boosting our training opportunities or allowing doctors to stay on after retirement? Could we import professionals? Where would we find Cantonese speakers? After 9.20, best and worst airports in the world - what's your experience? (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 6393 5925)
