Radio 3 Highlights

Today's Focus

On Money For Nothing, our first guest today is Sean Darby of Jefferies who will be telling us about the market and economy. Our next guest is Leung Siu Cheong, the senior consultant of the Hong Kong Productivity Council. He will tell us all about system security. Our guest host this morning is Michael Every of Rabobank, who has been our regular market commentator and he never spares his analogies on the financial markets. (8am-8.30am, facebook or email moneyfornothing@rthk.hk)

On Backchat, we talk about the future direction of the Urban Renewal Authority. The URA's former Managing Director Iris Tam resigned this week, apparently over disagreements about the role of the body. How do you think it should be funded? Should the authority focus more on profitable and large-scale renewal projects? Should it be for the benefit of people who already live in run down areas? After 9.20, should electronic cigarettes be banned?  (8:30-9:30am, Call in 233 88 266 , facebook, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925.)

A busy show on Morning Brew this morning. Angie Man reviews the horse event of the year, "Cavalia", which started last night in Central, and our New York correspondent Tracy Quan gives us insight into how the Dominic Strauss-Khan affair keeps on reverberating, four years after. Dr Merrin Pearse gives us the latest on eco and green matters, with a focus on the plastic bag levy which is expanded from today. Plus James Marsh previews the big holiday movie, Fast and Furious 7. All in a fun-packed edition of Morning Brew! (9:30am-1pm,  facebook,email morningbrew@rthk.hk )
