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".

Waste reduction & recycling at this year's Policy Address and discussion with EPD Howard Chan, ATV l 00:22:00 2015-01-30
In this year’s policy address the Chief Executive introduced a one billion dollar recycling fund to promote the recovery and recycling of waste. But campaigners say that efforts so far have been pretty half-hearted. In his Policy Address, the Chief Executive also announced that the government is examining the idea of introducing quantity-based charges for municipal solid waste. Legco’s Panel on Environmental Affairs will discuss that next month. With us in the studio is the Deputy Director of Environmental Protection, Howard Chan.

Another month, another payday. But not perhaps if you work for Asia Television Limited. As of Tuesday this week the Labour Department had issued a total of 76 summonses against ATV and its executive director Ip Ka-po over delayed salary payments. It’s also facing a fine of HK$200,000 for failing to pay broadcast license fees of about HK$10 million. With us in the studio is Sin Chung-kai and Yonden Lhatoo, Editor-In-Chief of news of public affairs of ATV.
