    Presenter:Annemarie Evans

    A special, three-part series on Radio 3’s Hong Kong Heritage. Interviews with Michael Wright, 105, at his home in London with producer/presenter Annemarie Evans. Mr Wright, who was born in Hong Kong in 1912, served as a soldier and later prisoner of war in Hong Kong and was the architect of the city’s post-war public housing as tens of thousands of refugees poured into the territory. Mr Wright, who died on January 26, woud later become the Director of Public Works and oversee Hong Kong at a time of water shortages in the 1960s.

    Michael Wright was born in Hong Kong in 1912, the same year the Qing Dynasty ended, a new republic was born, and the Titanic sank. In the first programme Michael describes his privileged childhood, of servants, and a sedan chair to take him to school on the Peak, and remembering his uncle going off to the First World War, where he was killed. Later, Michael goes to boarding school, before returning as a young architect in 1938 and serving as a gunner in Battle of Hong Kong.
