Season 2, Episode 1 - My Private China


Season 2, Episode 1 - My Private China


This weekend marks Diwali, the Hindu festival of light which is a time for spiritual renewal and transformation. A great time to kick off this brand new season of Asian Threads.

Our stories this season will hone in on the concept of 'transformation' through the Asian journey and examine how it's different from mere 'change.'

Like all things, it's best perhaps to start at home so one of the first things we explore this season is the transformation of Hong Kong.

On this episode of Asia Threads, we'll talk with Alex Kuo about the inspiration for his book 'My Private China' which is a a collection of essays written over the last thirty-five years...documenting the changes in Hong Kong and China.

Congratulations to Reenita Malhotra Hora

Congratulations to Reenita Malhotra Hora, producer of Radio 3's Asian Threads . She's the winner of the Gold Radio Trophy in the category of Current Affairs, for her programme 'The Girl in the Green Dress' at the prestigious New York Festivals International Competition.

She's seen here collecting the trophy at a special Gala event in New York City on Monday 17th June. Stay tuned for another chance to hear this award winning documentary on Radio 3, and a new series of Asian Threads coming your way this autumn. 


Asian Threads is a half hour weekly docu-story series spinning the tales of Asian communities and cultures -- their personal accounts, their history, their literature. Storyteller Reenita Malhotra Hora distills the wisdom of ancient and modern traditions bringing you epic moments woven deep into the fabric of Asia.

Neither a news show nor a talk show, each episode of Asian Threads is woven around a single theme. Our stories profile interesting people and the things that happen to them. Some are well known personalities, others are regular everyday people. There are funny moments and emotional moments, all feature real scenes with real characters and narrative threads. When we feature fiction, we draw upon stories about what it's like to be here in Asia or as part of the Asian diaspora. 

Would you like to broadcast your story on Asian Threads? 

If you hear about something in the news or in your community that you think might make a good docu-story for us, send us an email: We will contact you if your idea works for a forthcoming show.
