Radio 3 Highlights

Today's Focus

This week the Wide Open Road heads deep into the outback - from the tropical paradise of Broome in the wild north west of Western Australia down epic highways into a desert region that's bigger than South Korea, with less people than your standard peak hour MTR service - and it inspired one of Australia's greatest ever albums. (Saturdays, 8.30am-9am)

This week World Vibes has a Double Whammy Double Musical-Themed show! All the songs, be they Hot New Hits from the Americas, the Caribbean, or Europe and beyond, are either sung in Spanish or in French! It’s the Franco Latino show from a surprising number of places. Click on World Vibes above for more details. A show for the aficionados!(1.10pm-3pm)
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)
