Programme details

Demonstration of Traditional Film Editing

Early television productions were shot on film. Each production had to go through a number of procedures before broadcasting: filming, film processing, editing, sound track mixing, superimposition and telecine transfer. Experienced film editors have been invited to give participants an introduction to the production processes of traditional TV programmes in the exhibition gallery. They will demonstrate film editing techniques using an old Steenbeck film editing machine. The demonstrators will also talk about the pros and cons of film editing, and the advantages of today's digital editing technology.

90 Years of Broadcasting in Hong Kong Forum

(1) Retrospect and Prospect of Radio Broadcast

Part I – Retrospect
The development of Hong Kong's broadcasting industry is akin to the city's social development in miniature. Ranging from changes in technology to types of programmes, how are these changes related to all Hong Kong citizens?

Part II – Prospect
As more and more information and entertainment channels and platforms emerge, how can traditional radio broadcasting keep up with the times and explore further development?

As we celebrate the 90th anniversary of Hong Kong's broadcasting industry, how can TV dramas move into the future?
