Tonight's show opens with this year's Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (or CASBAA) Convention. Highlights include CASBAA Chairman Marcel Fenez, on what's under debate, and John Tsang (SCIT) on local regulatory changes. We also have background and interviews on "Al-Jazeera" with Wadah Khanfar, Managing Director; Nigel Parsons, Managing Director of Al-Jazeera International, Steve Clark, Head of News for Al-Jazeera International, and the station's Hong Kong correspondent Dima Khatib. Two years ago classical music sales were in the dumps. Today they've improved, but record companies have had to find new ways to market and distribute their music and musicians. Interviews include Yundi Li, Klaus Heymann, founder of Naxos records, and Dave Tam of Universal Music. Kidai Kwan talks about the new horror movie "The Grudge".
