On Monday's Backchat: we're asking is there any future for Carrie Lam, and for the extradition bill? The government has officially suspended passage of the controversial legislation, and towards the end of yesterday's massive march, the Chief Executive apologized to the people of Hong Kong, admitting that the deficiencies in the government's work had caused disappointment and grief among the people. Where do we go now? How did Carrie Lam, and the Liaison Office so badly get this wrong? How should the police handling demonstrators still occupying roads in Central? What does Beijing make of the debacle?

On Friday's Backchat, is social media a good thing. After Facebook and other social networking sites suffered one of their worst outages, we ask if they're actually causing more harm than good. Do Instagram, WeChat, Youtube, Snapchat, Twitter, QQ and the rest build communities, champion good causes,connect people from around the world with common interests, educate, inform and entertain at almost no cost? Or do they foster fake news, cyberbullying, stress, addiction, envy, low self-esteem, sleeplessness, tiny attention spans and political manipulation? Are you and the world better or worse off? - And will they still be around in a hundred years time?
After 9.20, launch of youth hostel in Yuen Long - alternative housing for young people.
