On Monday's Backchat, who supports Hong Kong Independence? Many have recently condemned Independence activists, and those calling for separation from the Mainland. But the banners on campuses were placed anonymously, and it's not clear who, and how many are making these calls. Is the number as high as the 20% who voted for the localist camp in the last election? Is it as high as the 40% of young people in a survey who saw independence as their preferred option after 2047? Is support rising, or falling, and why has the issue flared up again now? Is it just a marginal view, or a real mass movement? Is it an excuse to introduce more restrictive legislation locally? Do media and official reaction make for more support? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, would you live in a container home?

On Friday's Backchat we're talking about the escalating tension surrounding North Korea's nuclear missile programme. Pyongyang's forces have now test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile which it's believed could have the range to reach the US state of Alaska. How is the United States likely to respond? And what should China and Russia and other powers be doing about it? What do you think about the latest developments? How could this situation possibly be resolved? After 9.20: Quality of life in Hong Kong. (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, or email firstname.lastname@example.org )
