On Friday's Backchat: How have the anti-extradition protests changed Hong Kong? With “Lennon Wall” protest sites springing up all over town, and demonstrations planned in different parts of the New Territories, are we witnessing a change in the political climate? Is Hong Kong society becoming more polarized, as evidenced by the recent clashes between pro and anti-extradition bill protesters in Yau Tong? And what are the implications for November's District Council elections?

On Tuesday's Backchat, we will talk about the film industry. Beijing has recently relaxed various rules for local films to enter the Mainland market, including HK film practitioners being eligible for Mainland awards, and removing restrictions on the number of Hong Kong people participating in the production of Mainland films. Are these rules attractive for the Hong Kong film industry, and will they make it grow - or die? Will Hong Kong audiences get more and better films? Or will they all become Mainland style productions, with little local impact? Why are Hollywood movies favoured over Mainland movies in Hong Kong? After 9.;20, Taiwan politics as its richest man announces he intends to stand for President.
