They’re supposed to be apolitical, but as we know, politics is everywhere. On today’s show, broadcaster and co-founder of the company behind the official Paralympic coverage, Jake Humphrey, and three-time Paralympian David Clarke join Christopher Hope to dissect whether a government proposal to sell off Channel 4 might spell trouble for the Games. Could it set years of progress in the representation of people with disabilities on the television into reverse?

Also on the podcast: Environment minister Rebecca Pow tells Chris why it’s time to stop weeding and start letting your lawn grow freely. It’s part of the government’s latest advice on how to save the planet, one step at a time. But how much responsibility lies with the individual and their lawnmower, and how much with larger corporations? Listen for full enlightenment.

  • In This Story: Hong Kong

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
