In the Show – 13th April 2010

It’s very likely that viewers of The Works, as well as watching our reports on the local arts scene, will want to read the occasional magazine on cultural issues. If you’ve been keeping up with Hong Kong’s cultural activities long enough you may have noticed that these magazines appear and disappear with sometimes bewildering speed. Often the magazines are losing their funding from the Arts Development Council, and are complaining that they are not being told why.

In the movie “Date Night” Steve Carell and Tina Fey play Phil and Claire Foster, a suburban couple with two children who are in a bit of a rut. When they hear that two of their friends are splitting up out of boredom, both decide that on their next regular “Date Night” they will pull out all the stops. They are going into town, to an uber-trendy restaurant called Claw. They problem is they forget to book, and when they pretend to be a no-show couple, the Tripplehorns to try and take their table, their problems really begin. The Tripplehorns have got on the wrong side of the local underworld. Reviewer Gary Pollard tells us more.

And we have a treat for those interested in Hong Kong’s own Indie music scene, as local band “Noughts and Exes” play in our studio, and talk to us about their new CD.
