January 24, 2013 --
HONG KONG, Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hong Kong Television Network Limited ("HKTV") has been aggressive in content production since mid 2012. Apart from a variety of dramas, we have been devoted to produce high quality infotainment programs, to bring enlightenment to the community, through sharing of real stories around the world. Among all, our production team has visited Fukushima of Japan, military camps in Afghanistan and is now in Burma hoping to meet Aung San Suu Kyi, laureate of Nobel Peace Prize 1991.
Being the first production crew to enter into Afghanistan military camp for interview and shooting, our crew has got in touch with local army force. Most impressively, we have interviewed Mr. Massoud Hossaini, winner of 2012 Pulitzer Prize in Breaking News Photography, for his heartbreaking image of a girl crying in fear after a suicide bomber's attack at a crowded shrine in Kabul. He would share his vision to unmask the real face of war.
Previously, HKTV's production crew has also visited Fukushima of Japan, interviewing why volunteers from Hong Kong are so brave to stay at the scene where local residents retreated due to nuclear radiation threat. Currently, our crew stays in Burma devoting efforts to meet Aung San Suu Kyi with lifetime dedication for democracy and human rights in her hometown.
