Hong Kong five years later reversal of fortune
This program, filmed five years after the handover to China, takes a close look at Hong Kong's declining fortunes, due in part to sociopolitical changes and to the bursting of the Asian economic bubble. Issues deeply impacting immigration, human rights, employment, health and welfare, and freedom of the press are addressed through the opinions of influential figures and the stories of ordinary people struggling to cope with life in Chinese Hong Kong.
