MORE than 100 television networks around the world will broadcast the handover of Hong Kong in 1997. And some crews want to set up cameras on the Chinese border to be ready should the People's Liberation Army come marching across after midnight on June 30. The Legislative Council is another venue broadcasters have expressed interest in filming. International interest in the largest broadcasting event in the territory's history will be equivalent to a 'smaller Olympics', said Gilbert Pun Kei-cheong of Hongkong Telecom. While Governor Chris Patten seems to believe worldwide coverage might have some influence on China's behaviour, there have been no strong signals yet from Beijing about broadcasting the event. More than 30 European broadcasters plus others from North America, Asia, South America and Africa have requested satellite time, said Mr Pun. Mr Patten has raised the prospect of events at Legco, where he expects members sacked by Chinese authorities to protest, being beamed to a huge international audience.
