Enjoy Yourself Tonight

Unlike our tycoons, Douglas Young knows the difference between price and value

Our self-serving elite say Hong Kong people have become anti-rich. Actually, we are just tired of having the wool pulled over our eyes by the tycoons, their cronies and a subservient media.

A gift from G.O.D. for the creator of Enjoy Yourself Tonight

Lydia Shum, a guiding light on screen and off

After almost two years of battling cancer, Lydia Shum Tin-ha - one of Hong Kong's most revered and long-lasting stars - finally succumbed to her illness yesterday. It seems ironic, or perhaps it is a sign of things to come, that this sad news comes in the midst of the city being caught up in the maelstrom of the celebrity nude pictures scandal.

Quiz show sets sights on world

Media veteran Robert Chua Wah-peng is to launch a new television quiz show.

Clever ideas thin on the ground

In 1970s Hong Kong, the variety show seemed the way to go for popular entertainment. The television show Enjoy Yourself Tonight achieved mass ratings with its winning combination of modern dance and Canto-pop, spiced with stand-up routines, sit-coms and general nonsense.

In the 90s, things are more subversive.

Fine for Wharf over cruel scene

WHARF Cable has been fined $10,000 by the Broadcasting Authority for screening a children's drama that showed a boy throwing a cat off a balcony.

Chua making most of good connections

TO the Hong Kong Club, where we spot Robert Chua (the man who provides us curious folk with exotic call-in services to enable us to find out how the other half loves) talking animatedly down a telephone.

Chua and the telephone have a deep fondness for each other.

TVB quits the haunted house

THE six fung shui palm trees on the roof at TVB's complex at Broadcast Drive will not be making the journey to the new TV City studios in Clear Water Bay.

After 15 years of successfully deflecting the bad influences emanating from a curving traffic overpass, the trees are being replanted elsewhere.
