This weekend marks 20 years since the handover of Hong Kong from British to Chinese rule. We hear from the last British governor of Hong Kong, Lord Chris Patten, and visit Kwai Tsin port to hear why Hong Kong's shipping industry has slipped from number one to number five in the world rankings. Also in the programme, there's anger on the streets of Cairo as Egyptian fuel prices soar after cuts to government subsidies. The BBC's Sally Nabil brings us the latest. Following the latest high-profile cyber attack, the BBC's Mark Ward tells us about a $12m boost to cyber defences around Europe. Plus Josh Barker of the UK's National Space Centre tells us about a new satellite being launched in Europe that promises a giant leap forward for internet coverage on planes.
