This Saturday morning at 7.10 (with an abridged repeat at 6.15pm on Sunday), join Annemarie Evans for an unmissable, extended holiday edition of Hong Kong Heritage. With some (nothing short of) incredible old radio clips from the RTHK archive, she takes you back to the year 1972. So much happened that year, both good and bad. With help from some of the great announcers at Radio Hong Kong (as we were known), she’ll tell you about an ocean liner going up in flames, floods and landslides that killed dozens, the head of the Kong Kong Olympic Committee negotiating face-to-face with a terrorist at the Munich olympics, Hong Kong’s first container terminal, the opening of the cross harbour tunnel, Bruce Lee conquering Hollywood, and… Lap Sap Chung. Listen out too for music from The Chopsticks and Frances Yip, in this ‘must listen’ special edition of… Hong Kong Heritage.

Hong Kong Heritage in 1972 - Saturday October 1st at 7:10am, and Sunday October 2nd at 6.15pm
In this Saturday afternoon's show, singles jet-fresh from Jamaica include a sultry, soulful new reggae number from singer Aza Lineage, called 'Ghetto Love'. Expect other new and vintage global reggae and ska and - fear not - cracking tunes from other genres too, as always. One of those - in Andy 's usual old-school hip-hop double-play - will be a very upbeat song by recently deceased Coolio (preceding his most known one by a year).
Every Saturday - 3.05-6pm, here on Radio 3
