Redfern and fiancee go on journey of lifetime

Hong Kong-based British golf pro Nick Redfern and fiancee Yvette Chung last week embarked on a 40-week journey that will see them tour the Asia-Pacific region, compete in dozens of professional golf tournaments as player and caddie, and hopefully end up as man and wife at the end of it all.

Out of this world

STEVEN SPIELBERG has always had a thing for aliens. He took a good look at alien abductions in Close Encounters Of The Third Kind in 1977, and in 1982 he brought us the the ever-so-sweet alien in E.T. Now he's back on the subject again, this time with a 10-part television series called Taken.

Oh goodie, a new programme for Tuesday nights. Well, a new season of an old favourite anyway.

X-Files revisited

The truth, as they say, is out there and the cast of TVB's new sci-fi series, Dark Skies (Pearl, 9.30pm), is going to search for it - whatever the cost.

If that all sounds singularly like The X-Files, that's because it is.

Alien query

I AM curious to find out about the follow up of the 'Roswell Autopsy', which was shown on one of our TV channels earlier this year.

First, it was shown on the Chinese channel and the next week on the English-language channel. Readers may recall this programme was about an alien autopsy which was filmed in 1947. It was pretty gory.

Alien encounters of the worst kind

IT'S not for me to spoil your breakfast, but this alien business is getting right out of hand. There are, I would be first to admit, some suspicious-looking characters driving our public light buses and hosting late-night shows on RTHK.

The alien has landed

THERE is irrefutable evidence on television this evening that aliens have landed on Earth and ingratiated themselves into society. I speak of Hulk Hogan in Suburban Commando (Pearl, 9.30pm).
