    Outsiders and extradition / Gay ads back

    On Thursday's Backchat,  we talk about outsiders and extradition.The CE has said foreign intervention in matters relating to the fugitive law amendment made it reasonable for the CPG to speak out on the issue. She claims that foreign governments or organisations had attempted to damage the relationship between the CPG and the SARG and even recklessly attacked the judicial and human rights systems on the Mainland, escalating the matter to the level of the "One Country, Two Systems" principle. With Germany granting refugee status to two Hong Kongers, and the background of the whole US-China trade dispute, where should we draw the lines defining 'interference'? Is it reasonable for Chambers of Commerce here to  comment on issues that affect their members and business here? Both pro- establishment and pro-democratic groups have lobbied in the U.S. Is one side inappropriate? If we throw open the doors and  view issues as totally international, how can we avoid becoming part of superpower political conflicts? After 9.20, gay ads back.

    Film Industry in Hong Kong / Taiwan Election

    On Tuesday's Backchat, we will talk about the film industry. Beijing has recently relaxed various rules for local films to enter the Mainland market, including HK film practitioners being eligible for Mainland awards, and removing restrictions on the number of Hong Kong people participating in the production of Mainland films. Are these rules attractive for the Hong Kong film industry, and will they make it grow - or die? Will Hong Kong audiences get more and better films? Or will they all become Mainland style productions, with little local impact?  Why are Hollywood movies favoured over Mainland movies in Hong Kong? After 9.;20, Taiwan politics as its richest man announces he intends to stand for President.
