Stage costumes worn by singers Anita Mui, Leslie Cheung and Teresa Teng, as well as trophies for the Top Ten Chinese Gold Songs Award, are among the items on display at the "90 Years of Public Service Broadcasting in Hong Kong" exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. The exhibition showcases special moments in the history of Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) and the broadcasting industry in Hong Kong over the past 90 years.
It is jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and RTHK and jointly organized by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and RTHK. The exhibition showcases the development of Hong Kong's broadcasting industry with RTHK as the focus and lets visitors revisit glorious moments of the industry's history through sound and image.
In June 1928, the then Hong Kong government took over a non-governmental radio broadcaster, the Hong Kong Radio Society, to begin broadcasting services. With "GOW" as its call sign, the broadcaster marked the founding of what is known today as RTHK. Since then, RTHK has become the sole public service broadcaster in Hong Kong.
