The Pulse

Type:VideoLanguage:EnglishCategories:NewsCurrent 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, RTHK's The Pulse. 

The programme is aired every Saturday on RTHK 31 & 31A at 18:00, and a repeat on Sundays at 06:30.

Archive available later after broadcast. ** Please note that the programme air-time on TV is different with webcast time.

CE Carrie Lam talks to The Pulse on the Policy Address 00:21:57 2017-10-14
Hello and welcome to a new season of The Pulse. On Tuesday, the day before delivering her maiden Policy Address, Chief Executive Carrie Lam released her self-assessed report card on her first 100 days in office. The 12-page document set the tone for what was to come the next day. She said the Address was to be “a new beginning” and hoped it would mark “new starting points” for many areas in Hong Kong.

Following the Address on Wednesday, a survey conducted by Hong Kong University’s Public Opinion Programme found that 48% of respondents were satisfied with the Policy Address, 14% were not. Overall, on a scale of 0-100, respondents gave the Address a 62.4 score.

That's it from us for this week. And just to update you - from now on, the first run of The Pulse is on RTHK 31 every Saturday at 6pm with a repeat on Sunday at 6:30am. If you prefer to watch on demand, via the RTHK website you can still catch us there or on our Facebook page – where you will find both streaming video and podcasts – or you can give RTHK’s mobile Apps a go. Wherever you catch us, we’ll see you next week. Goodbye.
