Summary

We briefly discuss the properties of hot stellar populations in galactic globular clusters in the UV. The items we discuss are: horizontal branch morphologies, blue tails and gaps; blue straggler stars; and low-luminosity UV objects as the newly discovered optical companion to Millisecond Pulsar in binary systems.
