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

For once it can be said without exaggeration that history has been made. On Thursday British voters decided to take their country out of the European Union, it is an earthshaking decision that will have massive impacts on British politics, society and the economy – and the ripples from this referendum will be felt well beyond the United Kingdom, global financial markets have already delivered a first and devastating verdict sending the pound tumbling. With us in the studio are former Sun newspaper journalist Anna Healy Fenton who supported the Brexit campaign, Sam Holsen of Hong Kong Conservatives Abroad who was hoping for Britain to remain and James Downes, visiting scholar with the European Union Academic Programme at Hong Kong Baptist University.
