On Monday's Backchat, are we ready for climate change? The Hong Kong Observatory predicts that up to 7 typhoons will affect us this year, and there's an 80% chance that this will be in the top 5 all-time hottest years. What should we be doing in the short and long terms to deal with the heat, and catastrophic weather? Are are buildings, and sea defences suffucient? Are you worried that there will be no winters?
After 9.20, immigration policy. Should we reduce the number of one way permits?
Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at email@example.com, or give us a call on 23388266.

This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for some Good Ol' Country. For the first time in nearly 20 years Radio 3 brings you the best in real-deal American country music. We’re very excited to welcome its host too, who apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, has lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael Lance was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America in his family’s Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Music has always been in his blood, literally, and he hopes his selection will make you stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country.
