Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Hung Hom Peninsula, Kowloon

A snippet from episode 2 (called The Lost Man) where Eddy (Tzi Ma) and Kelly (Catherine Neilson in overacting mode) head over to a newly reclaimed Hung Hom to deal with a crazy dude carrying a chopper.

The buildings you can see in the background of the top picture are the apartment blocks of Whampoa Garden. The dusty area the guys are driving on became the space that now holds the Harbourfront Horizon Hotel, and actually, right by the water is now where the Hung Hom to TST promenade now sits.

Looking across to HK Island with the B.O.C and HMS Tamar just in sight.

 oops! someone was careless with the McDonalds ketchup sachet...

Look carefully at the background of the last screen grab and you can see the sloped wall of the HK Colisium in the background. No Cantopop Star worth their salt has made it big without putting on some O.T.T glitzy vapid show in this place.
