Cable TV 'may be skewed towards mainland' in future Listen
A lecturer at the Chinese University's School of Journalism and Communication, Grace Leung, expects Cable TV will be re-directed towards the mainland market in the long term, after a rescue plan led by tycoons Henry Cheng and David Chiu is approved by small shareholders.

But Grace Leung told Jim Gould that subscription TV is finding it difficult to survive.
Government amends Kai Tak Sports Park proposal Listen
Lawmaker Edward Yiu, who represents the Architectural, Surveying, Planning and Landscape sector, has expressed regrets over the government amendments made to the proposed Kai Tak Sports Park project.

But concerns remain over a payment of up to 60-million dollars in compensation to losing bidders, as well as budget over-runs. A LegCo subcommittee will vote on the 32-billion-dollar funding request on Wednesday. Professor Yiu spoke to Ben Tse.
