    監製:Danny SIT

    If “ Hong Kong Connection ” were a tree, how old would it be? It was on 5 March, 1978 that the documentary series first went on the air in Chinese. As the series continues, its staff are determined to go on uncovering and delving into every local and international topic that concerns the people in Hong Kong, whether it be political, economic, educational, commercial, environmental or technological. A tree plays an important environmental role in refreshing the air that we breathe and holding from the earth on which we stand. It is Hong Kong Connection's mission to provide the public with information and analyses as well as an opportunity for rational discussion. The programme is aired every Thursday evening on TVB Pearl at 19:00-19:30 (3 Oct. 2013 - 27 March 2014)

      The Rural Representative Election was held in early 2019. Since 2003, the non-indigenous residents were allowed to run the Resident Representatives. The seats are not limited to the non-indigenous residents but also open to indigenous residents who have been lived in the village for over six years.

      Consuming Contaminants?

      Plastic waste is a global problem.

Researches from international and local scholars already prove that microplastic beads, degraded from plastic waste in ocean, are found in sea water and some seafood, including fishes and shellfishes. Scientists are now focus on how those beads affect us when they enter the human bodies via food chain.

    • Space Speculation

      Space Speculation

      If house values in Hong Kong have been rising for the past few years, then a bigger surprise would be the price of parking spaces, which have grown much faster than homes in some areas. The car parking space in Ho Man Tin, Kowloon, was sold at 6 million in June. It has become the most expensive parking space in the history of Hong Kong. The sky-high price is comparable to that of residential units.
      What is the reason behind the speculation in the parking spaces? Some investors said that since the Hong Kong government launched heavy stamp duty in property market, the funds were transferred to car spaces. As a driver, our case Mr. Wong said that parking spaces are in tight supply in the territory, and the shortage of private car parking spaces is particularly severe. For instance, he and more than 500 people have to queue up, before dawn to apply for renting monthly private car parking spaces in a government car park every month.

      Last year, the Police have issued 1.84 million "fixed penalty notice" to combat the illegal parking situation. But it seems that the provision of parking spaces is still a problem to the city. It all comes down to supply and demand. Can it be solved with better government town planning?

      Creativity, Chinese Style

      2018 marks the 40th anniversary of China’s Reform and Opening (gaige kaifang) in 1978. Since then, China is an emerging economic power, and Shenzhen "Dafen Oil Painting Village" can be one of the miniatures of the whole development of China. Like most of the world factories in China, peasant-turned oil painters were exploited by entrepreneurs, yet after 40 years of development, they tried to transit from simply making copies of iconic Western paintings to creating their own authentic works of art, emblematic of the journey that China is going through, from ‘Made in China’ to ‘Created in China’. Meanwhile, the story of Dafen also put to light on how the government only focuses on economic development but neglecting human rights and freedom of the citizens while artists would like to fight for freedom of expression and speech with many difficulties.
