At 10.40, New York correspondent Tracy Quan will be with us, live from The Apple, and... five days in. After 11.30 our second and final visit of the year from Tisa Ho, the Executive Director of the Hong Kong Arts Festival. Last week she talked about music, and today she’ll focus on the theatrical performances at this year’s festival. At 12.10 we're joined on the line from the UK by historian and author Iain Leighton, who will tell you all about his brand new book "Footprints Left in Hong Kong: Expat Life in Hong Kong in the 1950s and 1960s". It's a an evocative slice of nostalgia that has already received some great reviews.

Good morning and welcome to Friday. At 10.10 today we'll find out who won the 2020 Adventure Clean Up Challenge Hong Kong. Organiser Esther Roling returns for one last time this year to tell us who kayaked, swam, climbed, and abseiled their way to collecting the most trash from some almost inaccessible parts of Hong Kong’s coastline. At 11.10 Danny Hicks brings you this week’s Sports and All. He’ll talk about tennis, Premiere League, and of course the death this week of a footballing legend. At 12.10 we’re off to the movies with our very own legend (just ask him), James Marsh. Join us on Facebook live throughout. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org and Facebook)
