A Democratic Candidate for Chief Executive; Radios for tsunami-stricken Indonesia; Swire hires famed architect Frank Gehry to propose a "Cultural Harbour"; The first Hong Kong Entertainment Expo opens (25 Mar 2005)


The Democrats have decided to field a candidate for the Chief Executive election, even though everyone's pretty sure Donald Tsang is going to romp home. Democratic Party Chairman Albert Ho and Audrey Eu of the Article 45 Concern Group talk to Steve Vines about their strategy in response to issues raised by Tung Chee-hwa's resignation, including the term of office of his successor. In the aftermath of the tsunami disaster the Pulse also reports on attempts to restore communications through radio in Aceh, Indonesia. RTHK has been participating in a plan to provide radios to individuals in the area. Frank Gehry has been described as the world ’ s greatest living arthictect, a nomination he takes lightly. Still his buildings are striking, and he has been invited to submit a museum complex design for Swire Properties ’ proposal for a "Cultural Harbour". That's the property developer's alternative to the single-developer West Kowloon Cultural Development. Hong Kong's first entertainment expo opened on Monday of this week. It's designed to give a shot in the arm to the SAR's film and entertainment industries. We were at the opening.
