"Journey to the History of Victoria Prison"; Film Review - "Happy Feet"; Interview with Jose Carreras. (02 Jan 2007)


If you want to learn more about the history of one of Hong Kong's oldest prison buildings, this weekend, and the next two weekends, you can take a tour called "Journey to the History of Victoria Prison". As part of the project, a group of Hong Kong artists has created a series of art installations in individual cells. Meanwhile, discussions over the future of the prison complex continue. Director George Miller began his career with the anarchic and relatively violent Mad Max movies, and went on to such films as "The Witches of Eastwick" and "Lorenzo ’ s Oil". But apart from these very adult movies, he's also turned his hand to children's fare. In 1995 he co-wrote a film about a talking pig, "Babe". Three years later he directed a sequel, "Babe: Pig in the City". Now he's moved on from talking pigs to singing and dancing penguins with the new computer-animated film "Happy Feet". Gary Pollard reviews it. In part two of our show tonight, one of the golden voices of our time. One of the Three Tenors, Jose Carreras, is performing in Hong Kong on Wednesday and Thurday evening. The Works spoke to him this afternoon on his career, his relationship with Herber von Karajan, and the foundation he has set up to conquer the disease he has personally fought - leukaemia.
