The Pulse

Type:VideoLanguage:EnglishCategories:Current AffairsStatus:On going Description: RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page

Interview with Johannes Chan on the latest at HKU & Small House Policy 00:22:00 2016-02-06
The idea behind the New Territories Small House Policy was that indigenous villagers would be able to build houses for themselves when needed. Some have been found guilty of abusing that policy by selling their rights to developers. The Heung Yee Kuk is up in arms about this while the government seems rather reluctant to defend the law.

But first, the political storm at the University of Hong Kong continues, and reached a crisis point last week, when the new chairman of the governing council Arthur Li, held his first meeting. His emails have been hacked, although there’s been no prosecution, pro-Beijing newspapers have attacked him, detractors – including Mr Li - have questioned his academic credentials and even his personality … this week, in rather calmer circumstances, I spoke to Johannes Chan.
