This Sunday morning at 8.30, in the third part of Radio 3's special handover anniversary series "20 Years On", Anna Fenton looks at the drama surrounding sedition, secession, subversion and state secrets...four of the "Seven Sins" outlined in Article 23 of the Basic Law, Hong Kong's proposed National Security legislation. Retired civil servant and author of Paper Tigress, Rachel Cartland, explains how months of lockdown due to the mystery illness SARS left Hong Kong's population in no mood for new anti-treason laws in the summer of 2003. Then, Article 23 expert Audrey Eu gives us a vivid description of the surprisingly festive atmosphere of the first July 1 march. And finally this week, what will Article 23 mean for the man in the street? China commentator and author Mark O'Neill explains what frightens people about it, and why Beijing is frustrated by Hong Kong's lack of progress in enacting it.
