Backchat: Hong Kong History | RTHK Radio3

16 October 2020

RTHK Radio 3

On Friday's Backchat, telling the Hong Kong Story.

The permanent exhibition of the Hong Kong Museum of History will close for an extensive revamp on Monday after 20 years. What should be in the future version of our past? How will it deal with colonial history, and 'One Country Two Systems'? History and local heritage have become particularly politicized - should the display reflect or avoid this? How would you deal with June 4th, Occupy, the 67 riots or SARS?
