Ho is fond of When Heaven Burns Reporter: Karin Lai Kwai Lan

While it might seem usual for an ex-managing director of CBS to discuss about Hong Kong television production, Miss Ho Yuet Fung, certainly is something of an expert in the field.

Ho’s career was started in the television industry in Hong Kong. After graduated she joined TVB as a senior screenwriter, has been created a local famous soap opera series Frenzy.

“I am appreciated that I had contributed during the most splendid era of local television industry,” the Ho said, speaking in a lecture of Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

She continued, “However, TVB had long been grumbled as flat and insipid these years, with the sophisticated formulated plots, or fulfilled the elderly couch potatoes.”

The valid situation highlights what challenges TV drama production movements face. Yet Ho’s perception of local TVB was converted due to the latest TVB series When Heaven Burns.

“It is extraordinary which breaks the grammar of tradition local series. Plot is innovative that comes with unusual postproduction technique,”

“TVB series had not been attracted to me in a long period, but this time I definitely drenched in it. Thus, I spent time to rewind its previous episodes on the Internet,”

This drama also gained big echo within the youths. Ho urged the creative team of TVB should follow this style, in order to solve the alleged "disengagement" of younger viewers.

Hong Kong television programmes have been exported to Pacific Asia and Europe that be viewed as a tremendous profit making business. A new television broadcasting company will start its business in March, ignited the attention of existed broadcast companies, and included TVB, which worried about being crippled. But Ho claimed that it will not lead to a negative competition.

“I disagree their disquiets as the overall population rate of the local and oversea is unceasing expanding which is able to take over the extra productions, no matter the new broadcast company is going to participate in the future, they could make profits compatibly,” Ho explained.



For the Chinese girl Miss He Yuet-fung had been served as Managing Director of Columbia International Radio and Television Corporation (CBS), her splendid experience was a legend. ((confusing intro and lead))


Ho’s career started in the television industry in Hong Kong. After graduated in the Chinese University, she joined TVB as a senior screenwriter, has been created a local famous soap opera series named "frenzy". ((sloppy and careless))


In recent year, Hong Kong drama had long been grumbled as flat and insipid, with the sophisticated formulated plots, or fulfilled the elderly couch potatoes. Ho commented that local company TVB produced an unordinary soap opera “When Heaven Burns”, break the grammar of tradition broadcast drama.


'The plot of “When Heaven Burns” is new and innovative. The postproduction such as editing is unusual. Be true, local opera had not been attracted at all for a long period but this time I spent time to rewind the previous episodes of “When Heaven Burns” on the Internet ,'


'I support this drama unassailable and suggest the creative team of TVB should follow this style.'


A new television broadcasting company will start running its business in March this year. The existed companies are worried it may cripple its original profit.


Ho claimed that the new company enters the pool of broadcasting will not lead to negative competition mechanism due to the change of marketplace.


'I disagree their disquiet because the demand of Hong Kong's dramas or other television programme are increase unceasing. With the continuing rise up of overall population of the local and oversea market, even though the new broadcasting company is going to air drama, the market capacity is huge enough to take over the growth of new programmes. It will be much more easier to return to profit, '


"The new broadcasting member can act as a catalyst to agitate a positive competition.”


Made-in-Hong Kong’s’ dramas are popular inside oversea markets such as pacific Asia, America and even west Europe, which could be viewed as a tremendous profit making business. ((some good ideas and good attributions, but your actual writing needs to be cleaned up for it to have real power...you have the potential and are almost there))




Background Information (Source from Wikipedia)



When Heaven Burns is a 2011 TVB television series starring Bowie Lam, Moses Chan, Charmaine Sheh, Maggie Shiu and Kenny Wong. With the first episode airing both in Hong Kong and TVB's overseas affiliates and partners on the 21st of November 2011. On December 27, 2011, the show was blacklisted by the Chinese State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television, making it the first Hong Kong soap opera to be censored in Mainland China in more than two decades.



On December 27, 2011, with four episodes to go, China's State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television ordered the sub-licensees to withdraw the video streaming on 11 websites based on the pretext of cannibalism, making When Heaven Burns the first Hong Kong soap opera series to be censored in Mainland China in over two decades. The underlying reason for this withdrawal was thought to be because of the show's underlying allusions to the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 and non-mainland China media considered this move as censorship.[3] The storyline and the characters demonstrated similarities to the Tiananmen Square protest. When interviewed by Hong Kong's Apple Daily, the show's screenwriter agreed that the story was inspired by the government crackdown on the student democracy movement.



Story line: In their youth Joe (Bowie Lam), Angus (Moses Chan), Ronnie (Kenny Wong) and Ka Ming are good friends and band mates. During a mountaineering trip, the four are stranded on a snow bound mountain and out of desperation Ka Ming is killed and eaten by the other three. This event has a traumatic effect on them, their friendship, and their friendship with Yan (Charmaine Sheh), Ka Ming's girl friend, leading the previously close group to go their separate ways.
