SINGAPORE - Catch up on the hottest topics on The Straits Times' weekday talk show.

The Big Story, broadcast every weekday at 5.30pm on Facebook and YouTube, has reporters and senior editors discussing the top stories of the day.

The show is helmed by multimedia correspondent Hairianto Diman and assistant video editor Olivia Quay, and airs live from ST's digital studio.

A new work pass will be launched next year for top-tier foreign technology professionals and experts looking to start businesses, lead corporate teams or teach here, in a bid to woo them to Singapore.

OCBC Bank's chief economist Selena Ling gives her take on Singapore's strategy to grow its tech sector, as well as the implications this pass will have on local hiring.

On this week's Life Weekend Picks, we look ahead to the fourth season of Netflix's The Crown and the best way to see Deepavali lights in Little India.

We will also talk about the latest news in Singapore and around the world.
