Peter Lewis will be on Radio 3 from 6 to 10 Monday morning for a holiday special with plenty of music old and new, fascinating guests and good chat. Sport and endurance is the theme for this Dragon Boat Day holiday show. Hear what happened when Peter went to Discovery Bay to meet up with the “Two x Twos” dragon boat team taking part in Sunday's races. Peter also catches up with Ben Chan who last month became the youngest Hong Konger to reach the summit of Mount Everest. However, that is just the beginning of his adventures. He aims to complete the Grand Slam by scaling the highest peaks on all seven continents as well as reach the North and South Poles. He spoke to Peter just before departing for Alaska to climb Denali, the highest mountain in North America.

On this week's Hong Kong Heritage, Part 3 of a special series highlighting the early decades of broadcasting in Hong Kong to mark the 90th anniversary of RTHK.

Backchat will return next Tuesday when we will talk about electronic cigarettes. The Government has plans to regulate e-cigarettes, heat not burn products and herbal cigareetes in the same way as traditional cigarettes. Is this the right approach, or do you agree with the Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health that vapour products should be completely banned? What's better for public health? Should e-cigarettes be welcomed as a way to stop conventional smoking? Call us with your questions and comments on 233388266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. After 9.20, who will travel on the HK-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge?
