123 Show Noreen Mir : The perfect companion for your lunchtime!
Welcome to a new week on Morning Brew. Unfortunately both our Monday morning regulars Tracy Quan and Robbie McRobbie can’t be with us today (maybe on a joint secret mission researching rugby in the sex industry?). Instead after 10 we talk to Hong Kong’s champion marine conservationist and historian Dr. Robert Lockyer who organised possibly one of he biggest beach clean-ups Hong Kong has ever seen. It certainly was the hottest, and It happened yesterday on Lamma Island. There was also very very special marine species focus to this event which he’ll tell us about. At 11.10 we’ll meet top British jazz trombonist Jeff Williams, share some of his smokin’ music, and find out what he’s up to in Hong Kong this week. At 12.10 our American politics guy (and author of the Custom Maid series) Peter Dekrassel gives us his take on the dance party of the century, starring the super couple with the best portmanteau in the business...Trim!

On Monday's Backchat, PPP. The Head of the Task Force on Land Supply says its most controversial option is public-private partnership, with some worried about effectiveness, and others about possible government-business collusion. Can the Government partner with developers to build new houses, without favouring them unfairly? What about increasing the proportion of public housing units generated under the option to 50 or 70 per cent? What about simply using the Lands Resumption Ordinance to take back farmlands in the NT?

The end of the Second World War ushered in a long period of ideological confrontation between the former Soviet Union and the West. With global tensions again on the rise, we'll be tracing the history of this decades-long struggle for supremacy, marked by espionage, proxy wars and the ever-present fear of nuclear missiles. Cold War - Stories From the Big Freeze features the voices of those who lived through this dramatic period. This 15-part BBC series begins on Sunday evening at 6.45 on Radio 3.

Anna Fenton presents a five-part series, Hooked, which looks at the growing issue of addiction in Hong Kong - from alcohol and illegal drugs to social media, internet pornography, smart phones and tablets (dubbed “process addictions” because like gambling, users get an effect without actually ingesting a chemical). Hear how the internet is providing a fast-forward button to addiction, find out what addiction really is, what it’s not, how to tell if you’ve got it, and what to do and where to get help if you’re ... Hooked.
