    Launch of High Speed Rail / Reducing the use of glow sticks and lanterns

    On Monday's Backchat, high speed rail. The Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link is launched on Sunday September 23. It's cost more than $80 billion and had more than its fair share of legal, environmental and management problems. Is it worth it? How did the first day go? Will it carry enough passengers? What about the ticket cost and ease of buying? Will you use it? What about the political and social impact of the new connection? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, reducing the use of glow sticks and lanterns during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

    National Identity and National Anthem Law

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton

    On Friday's Backchat, being more Chinese. Xi Jinping has called on Hong Kongers to have a stronger sense of Chinese identity. Why? How? Is the soft or hard way most effective?

Will the forthcoming anthem laws make a difference? Call us on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk.
