On Backchat, independence and the law. Is it actually illegal to advocate secession, and if so what law is broken? Can you support independence and stand for Legco? Are there legal differences between talking about it, advocating it, and actually doing something to bring it about?  After 9.20, getting rid of rubbish bins on country trails.(8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, facebookemail or text 6393 5925)
Legco Election 2016
Hong Kong will vote for a new legislature in less than a fortnight. Over the next four years, the winners will be tasked with guiding the territory through deepening social divisions, an uncertain economy and unresolved questions about Hong Kong’s political system and future. The competition has never been more fierce. In the five directly-elected geographical constituencies, a record 84 candidate lists will compete for just 35 seats.

RTHK Radio 3 and the English newsroom present a Legco Election special page, with links to the latest election news and audio and video features, including interviews with the candidates and expert analysis.

Rock Solid extended
Starting this Saturday evening, Todd Harding's Rock Solid will be extended to two hours in place of The Saturday Night Ride with Detroit Diamond, who's decided it's time to travel and spread his hip-hop and soul magic in the USA for a while. We wish him the absolute best, thank him for some truly great music programming, and hope to hear him back on Radio 3 sometime in the not so distant future. Peace!  (Rock Solid, Saturday, 8pm-10pm)
The Big Idea is Back!
The Big Idea is back.  Professor Douglas Kerr will explore more significant topics with experts. This week, we’re talking about The Maclehose Years.

Some time ago we did a programme on John Pope Hennessy, the most interesting of the nineteenth-century governors of the colony of Hong Kong. This week we are considering the governorship of one of the giants of the twentieth-century administration of Hong Kong, Sir Murray Maclehose.  (Sundays, 8.30am-9am)
