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".

Health Insurance consultation & discussion with Sophia Chan, Under Sec. of Food and Health & Kwok Ka 00:21:55 2014-12-19
This week the government rolled out two major policies. On Tuesday, it announced a proposal to an build an additional 10,000 housing units to create 480,000 new homes in the next 10-years. The day before, it launched a three-month consultation on health insurance and on measures to monitor private hospitals.

With increased air pollution, Mong Kok minibuses triple parking, and traffic snarl ups back to normal, except for a few tents around the government offices the Umbrella Movement’s occupation of the streets is at an end. But is there any real chance of a dialogue between our administration and the younger generation, or will it just remain as the Cantonese say “chicken and duck” talk, where the government feels its only duty is to “re-enlighten” the young?
