    On today’s programme, we‘re looking at Hong Kong‘s historic buildings and how best to preserve and use them.

    Often, it‘s a case of adapt, or die. There are many examples of revitalisation projects — old buildings put to new uses — that flourish, such as Tai Kwun in Central. Or there’s the Foreign Correspondents‘ Club at the Old Dairy Farm Depot that’s just gotten a lease renewal from the government.

    But not all of these projects work out… the Haw Par Music Foundation has just handed back the his-toric Haw Par mansion in Tai Hang to the government more than two years before its lease was up, citing income limitations and operational challenges.

    So, what’s the best way to save such historic buildings from the wrecking ball, and put them to good use?

    After 9:15 we’ll look at a new, locally-developed hepatitis B drug that could free patients from having to take pills for their whole lives.

    And at 9:25 we‘ll get the latest World Cup update from our sports correspondent.
