TVB hands over treasured films to Hong Kong Film Archive
To show its ardent support for the preservation of film heritage, TVB has handed over about 1,000 film titles from the 1930s to the 1990s to the Hong Kong Film Archive (HKFA) for permanent preservation. About 60 per cent of these archival films are new to the HKFA and will consequently greatly enrich its collection.

Films to be handed over include the earliest Chinese film in TVB's library, "Little Heroine" (1939), starring Hu Rongrong and Kung Chiu-hsia; and the earliest Hong Kong film in the library, "Female Spy 76" (1947) starring Wu Lai-chu and Wang Hao. The eight films on the list of HKFA's recommended "100 Must-See Hong Kong Movies" are: "Wong Fei-hung's Whip that Smacks the Candle" (1949), "Wong Fei-hung Burns the Tyrants' Lair" (1949), "Blood-stained Azaleas" (1951), "Mysterious Murderer" (1951) parts one and two, "Butterfly and Red Pear Blossom" (1959), "Father is Back" (1961) and "The Pregnant Maiden" (1968).
