Curtain falls on Hong Kong's oldest satirical TV show

By Su Xinqi

Hong Kong’s oldest political satire show aired its final episode Friday evening, against a backdrop of pro-democracy unrest and fears that an incoming anti-subversion law will help Beijing trammel local freedoms.

The swansong show by Headliner also comes after the government launched a review of RTHK, the public broadcaster that makes the programme, which has faced accusations from Beijing loyalists of being overly sympathetic to the opposition.
