Unveiling the Singapore identity on Channel U programme 'Made in Singapore'

Dated: 4 April 2005

Do you know there are more than 80 species of snakes in Singapore many of which can be found right in your neighbourhood parks and reservoirs? What do young children in Singapore wish for? And what is the Singapore Dream? Made In Singapore (十分新加坡), a new Mandarin info-tainment series on Channel U, takes a light-hearted look at what makes our island city so ‘Singaporean’. 

The first segment of the programme profiles Singaporeans like filmmaker and TV producer, Jack Neo, renowned New York-based fashion photographer, John Clang, and national badminton table-tennis player Li Jia Wei who have made a mark for themselves and Singapore.The second segment is a tongue-in-cheek look into the unique characteristics that define Singapore. This eight-part series also finds out what the “Singapore Dream” means to Singaporeans from all walks of life, and reveals interesting facts about Singapore that are unknown to many.

The series is commissioned by the Media Development Authority (MDA) and produced by Embassy Productions. Made-in-Singapore will make its debut on Channel U on 5 April 2005 at 8.30 pm, with a repeat on the same day at 11.30pm.
