On Tuesday's Backchat: we're following up the latest on the extradition bill. How should the CE respond to calls for her resignation? Why are so many young people so so wary of China? Is it time for an independent investigation of police action last week? Does our whole system of political representation need changing? How much responsibility lies with the advisers, civil servants and Executive Councillors who so misread the mood in Hong Kong? Will Beijing continue to support Mrs.Lam?
8:30- 9:30 Suspension of Extradition Bill
- Kenneth Leung, Legislator representing Accountancy Functional Constituency

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.
