Five Years On From 9/11; Taiwan's Anti-Chen Shui-Bian Movement; More Controls on Hong Kong Broadcasting? (15 Sep 2006)


The events of September 11th 2001 and the military, political and religious responses to them didn't just affect the United States. They have affected the world. With us in the studio to talk about 9/11 and the fallout from it are Victor Mallet, editor of Financial Times Asia, Alan Seigrist of Republicans Abroad, and Michael Cuervorst of Democrats Abroad. Is people power about to change Taiwan's political landscape? As we went to air, organisers were expecting a mass turnout for a demonstration aimed at ousting President Chen Shui-bian. But Chen has his supporters too. And over the weekend they were also due to be out in force. The Broadcasting Authority's Codes of Practice Committee wants to extend the scope of its monitoring of accuracy from news and current affairs programmes to four other areas – finance, education, health-care and quiz programmes, and its monitoring of impartiality on certain issues to all factual programmes. The proposal hasn't been enthusiastically accepted by broadcasters.
