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, RTHK's The Pulse. 

The programme is aired every Friday evening on RTHK 31 & 31A at 00:00, and on TVB Pearl on Saturday Morning at 8:30am.

Discussion with Edward Leung & Ronny Tong on oath-taking & HK independence, and one on one with Chri 00:21:57 2016-12-03
The government and pro-Beijing forces have decided to use the law in attempts to remove pro-democracy legislators, they’ve been successful in already getting rid of two of the Youngspiration lawmakers and are now trying to eject a third directly elected member of the Legislative Council, Lau Siu-lai. If they are successful – pro establishment forces, who had a far smaller share of the popular vote will be able to dictate what happens in the council. With us in the studio are Edward Leung of Hong Kong Indigenous and senior counsel and Founder of Path of Democracy, Ronny Tong.

During his recent visit to Hong Kong, former governor Chris Patten met journalists at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, students at the University of Hong Kong and took part in a public forum on Hong Kong’s governance. We caught up with him last Saturday.

And we'll end the shot with images of Cuba’s former President Fidel Castro who died last Saturday at the age of 90. We’ll see you next week. Goodbye.
