The Pulse

類型:視像語言:英文分類:NewsCurrent Affairs狀態:播放中 節目簡介: 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.

Disqualification of Eddie Chu, discussion with Priscilla Leung & government publicity campaigns 00:21:37 2018-12-08
According to Article 34 of the Chinese constitution, “All citizens of the People's Republic of China who have reached the age of 18 have the right to vote and stand for election, regardless of nationality, race, sex, occupation, family background, religious belief, education, property status, or length of residence, except persons deprived of political rights according to law.”And that’s a big “except”. The continuing disqualification of pro-democratic candidates from Hong Kong elections seem to suggest this long term deprivation of political rights as practised on the Mainland has arrived in Hong Kong, even if it’s not being openly admitted. Just ask Eddie Chu Hoi-dik.

Government advertising in Thailand, Japan or Taiwan, are often witty, well-made, and win international prizes. The Hong Kong government’s publicity or civic education campaigns are often criticised as being expensive, lacking in creativity, in bad taste, culturally insensitive, condescending, and being little more than crude propaganda.
In the 1970s, former government employee Arthur Hacker created Lap Sap Chung. Designed as a litter creating monster, Lap Sap Chung became a popular and much-loved figure. Since then, the government’s publicity people appear to have become obsessed with mascots.
