James Ross in for Phil this week and next, and this morning we find out about the citywide clap which is planned for tonight at 8pm. The event by the Hong Kong Community Foundation mirrors similar claps around the world, including the UK, as we salute heroes who've been working tirelessly to keep Hong Kong safe during the coronavirus crisis. Sally Lo is the founder of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund, which is supporting the event, and she'll tell us more at 10.15. After 11 we'll have the final part of Music of My Life with LEEE JOHN of 80's supergroup Imagination, and his music choices, and then after 11.30 author Christopher Dillon joins us to talk about the state of the property market here. Chris is the author of the "Landed" series of books about property, such as Landed Hong Kong and Landed Japan. After 12 James Marsh is on the show with our Friday movie and streaming extravaganza, and today he's focused on Tiger King and Freud.
It’s Tuesday on Morning Brew. We start just after the 9 news today, and for the next few weeks. We’ll use the extra few minutes to play your requests and dedications. Just email, or post a note on our Facebook page. After 10.30 Aus Boy Jarrod Watt returns with the latest from Down Under and a couple of great homegrown songs. At 11.10 Dr. Merrin Pearse makes his weekly eco-stop on The Brew. And, after 12 more tech tea leaves with Morris Miselowski. Plenty to talk about today, as yesterday marked the anniversary of the birth of Twitter and the death of Netscape. Also, today is the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, which was the first mission to land astronauts on the Moon.
