Last week the death of one local individual drew considerable media attention and public comment. Tsang Tsou-choi, otherwise known as the King of Kowloon, was for many years seen as little more than a deranged nuisance who defaced public facilities with graffiti. More recently, his single-minded work has come in for more serious consideration, not without controversy. Just the day before our show, one of the great artists of modern cinema died in his sleep at the age of 80. He was the Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman. Gary Pollard pays tribute to him. As we've reported in earlier shows, the Museum of Art has, over the past month, been exhibiting some of the finest works from centuries of Chinese artists. Right now, the second part of "The Pride of China" exhibition, consisting of pieces from the Palace Museum in Beijing, is on show. The bad news is that admissions have to be limited, and that all the admission tickets have been snapped up. The good news is that The Works has visited the exhibition to bring you a few highlights. In our studio tonight, members of local jazz band Red Taurus introduce their work, and play us their own flamenco-jazz composition "Spanish Steps".
