Radio 3 Highlights

Today's Focus
On Wednesday’s Money Talk we shall examine whether we are looking at a world that is retreating from globalization of which the Brexit vote is just one consequences. With rising protectionism, antipathy to free trade and populism increasing around the globe we shall look at what businesses and investors should do in an age of de-globalisation. We are also in an age of turbulence. Yields on Japanese government bonds have plunged to new record lows with the 40 year bond yield falling below 0.1% for the first time. Joining us to keep tabs on the fallout from the turmoil in the UK and jittery markets will be Erwin Sanft, head of China strategy at Macquarie Securities and Gavin Parry of Parry International Trading. We shall also have our regular weekly view from the USA with our international economics correspondent Barry Wood.

On Tuesday's Backchat, we will preview July 1 rally and celebration. CY Leung announced that there will be no performance at the annual reception this Friday in the wake of deaths of two firemen. Should the July 1celebration be scaled down? Do you expect a higher turnout of the July 1 rally in the midst of the low popularity of CY Leung? After 9.20, protest against the medical registration bill. Call us on 23388266 or email

New Show: HK Staycation
What's it like to belong in Hong Kong yet only really discover it for the first time as an adult? Broadcaster Rosie Duffield was born here and went to live overseas as a child.

B is for Bacon
This Saturday morning at 8.30 Chef and author Jason Black presents another episode of B is for Bacon. This week he puts on a snorkel and swims with the fish, before testing the world's most useless gadget! JC Viens gets packed for Maria's Annual Birthday Holiday (hoping for a decent wine list), and there's a review on a book about 'Meat Without Feet'. Chef Mike van Warmelo shares a beautiful recipe for beautiful oysters with a beautiful bacon dressing (beautifully) and Chef Christopher Kerr does an easy as 1-2-3 Lobster Roll.
