Hong Kong’s oldest satirical TV show becomes history as it aired its final episode

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 show 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.
