Several expatriates are hoping to launch a television show that will help English speakers settle into Hong Kong and take part in the community. The half-hour show, tentatively entitled Liz Live, will include an Oprah-like chat session and snippets of happenings in the community each week. The organisers have even convinced Andy Williams - who is due to perform in Hong Kong later this year - to be their first guest. Dean Head, director of photography at international film and TV production company Head Shots and the person behind the idea, has approached several television stations about getting an evening slot. With a studio and crew already lined up, he is just waiting for someone to pick up the show about women's issues. 'During the talk-show segment of the programme, we want to invite guests such as doctors, experts and even celebrities to cover issues such as marital problems, spousal abuse and health. We also want inspirational stories about people who have made something of themselves in Hong Kong,' he said. Mr Head hopes the show will keep the English-speaking community informed about fun and important community events. People can suggest topics for the show and join in the discussions by being part of the live audience, by phoning in or by sending messages via e-mail or SMS. Mr Head said the lack of good English-language programming inspired him to come up with the show. 'English programming in Hong Kong is terrible. Nothing's stimulating and creative. Besides, I want to increase the sense of community,' he said. The show will be hosted by Elizabeth Murrihy, founder of local women's group Women's Forum. 'When I first came to Hong Kong eight years ago, I had problems settling in and couldn't find a job. I led the typical expatriate lifestyle, with my amah, tennis and shopping. It's really easy to get wrapped up in the superficial lifestyle,' she said. 'But it gets lonely because there is no depth and substance. I want the show to send a message to people that the great thing about Hong Kong is that you can totally reinvent yourselves here. We need something positive and uplifting.'
