《情迷博物館》 五百噸的遺產

類 別 : 文 化 議 題
監 製 ︰ 梁 蕙 儀
編 導 : 劉 應 強

時間流逝,為身邊的事物加添歷史價值,但我們要保存歷史,就必須跟時間競賽。

一艘由香港黃埔船廠在1953年製造的滅火輪「葛量洪號」,它在香港消防處服役接近半個世紀。在過去無數著名的海上災難中,「葛量洪號」都堅守崗位,立下無數功勞,它已經成為我們歷史的一部份。但科技發展的步伐從不會停止下來,當年如何先進的「葛量洪號」總有因落伍而被淘汰的一天,新的滅火輪在今年五月接替u葛量洪號」。康文署文物修復組總館長陳承緯聯同消防處、建築署及海事處,希望將它保存為海防博物館的歷史展品。在金錢與資源皆短缺的情況下,極需要各個部門的合作,發揮團隊精神,從不同的計劃中找出可行的方案,否則「葛量洪號」將難逃退役後被拆卸的命運。

一位在「葛量洪號」服務差不多三十年,行將退休的消防員梁宗宇,他曾經跟隊員並肩作戰,靠的是現在已近落伍的設備----傳令鐘,才能完成任務。翻看歷史,「葛量洪號」並非只是一件滅火救人的工具,它更代表著團隊精神與同舟共濟的情操。我們保存歷史文物的價值,並非單單是保存硬件本身---消防船,而是將它所代表的同舟共濟與團隊精神,留給我們的下一代。本集將紀錄康文署博物館組,如何身體力行,在保存歷史文物---「葛量洪號」的過程中,與各部門合作,發揮團隊精神。

Discovering Museums: Saving a 500 Tonnes Heritage

Category: Cultural Issues

The fireboat "Alexander Grantham" is known to firemen as AG. The boat was built in Hong Kong Whampoa Dockyard in 1953. For nearly half a century, AG has been the flagship of the fire fleet of the Fire Services Department. It has become part of Hong Kong's history as it participated in numerous rescue actions. It is AG's fate that it will be retired in a few months. Neither the Fire Services Department, nor the Marine Department can give it a shelter. If no one wants it, it will either be auctioned or scrapped.

Seeing that a piece of history may be lost, the Central Conservation Section of the Leisure & Cultural Services Department tried their best to preserve AG as an exhibit in the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence. Their efforts in coordinating between different departments began to pay off when a number of proposals came onto the table. With limited financial resources, it is no easy task for a museum to take over this boat. Will AG finally be revived?
