1999, Radio 4 has been broadcasting a unique and very popular
English Language teaching programme Songbirds
for local students. At the heart of the programme was a weekly
radio drama, written by Dino Mahoney, about the lives of a group
of Hong Kong students. The drama follows a group of characters
who experience the joys and difficulties of being a teenager
and young adults. Most of the characters acted by local students,
teachers and lecturers.
