• Kowloon Walled City Documentary (with subs)

    Documentary filmed in 1988 about the Kowloon Walled City by an Austrian camera team, with English subtitles. I took it upon myself to re-sub the original video as best as possible, the original version is hard-subbed on a version of this film with very poor quality, the subs are also worded incorrectly in some places. So all I've done I re-subbed the whole thing and put it onto a better quality video clip.

The first part of the video is maybe more interesting as it's actually based in the walled city; on the tour with Ted Brown(the Aussie) and when interviewing the two girls, the other part is an interview with Jackie Pullinger. They do seem very keen on their work on helping druggies, but even I myself think they aren't very down to earth, Alan Wicker does well to keep the interviews going. Surely when he's interviewing the girl called Anne he asks her how she gets her food seeing as they don't earn any money as the work is ...

The city, a unique urban experiment, housed about 50,000 people in just 300 buildings, which were crammed together into a living space that followed its own set of laws. Governed by the Chinese mafia known as 'the Triads', the city became famous in the 1980s for its brothels, casinos and opium dens.

  • Life in Kowloon Walled City

    This is an old 1970's RTHK TV short programme on the life in the Walled City of Kowloon, Hong Kong. Demolished in the early 90's, the city was the site of once one of the most densest population in the world. 33,000 people lived in 300+ 14 storey ramshackled buildings packed into about a 7.5 acre area. Crime and illegal factories were certainly there, but everyday working people also inhabited the city. You can see the maze of passageways. All the buildings were walk-ups, as there were only 2 or 3 elevators in the entire city. Some of the buildings were 14 storeys tall. In the film, it show how close the buildings are to each other. "Handshaking" buildings they were called. The neighbour wants to use his iron and just passes his electric cord through the window to the ne...

I gather he came prepared for his visit and he was good at his job, but the girls didn't seem very keen. Plus it's hard to get answers out of people when they give you answers like that, I take it she just didn't want to tell him where they get the money to eat. Nevertheless, still worth a watch.

The city, a unique urban experiment, housed about 50,000 people in just 300 buildings, which were crammed together into a living space that followed its own set of laws. Governed by the Chinese mafia known as 'the Triads', the city became famous in the 1980s for its brothels, casinos and opium dens. Living conditions were squalid, with cramped and dirty spaces, no direct sunlight, patchy or non-existent electricity, and no garbage collection. Nevertheless, the city's population grew fivefold in just 40 years, from 10,000 after World War II, reaching 50,000 people by 1990. Rent was cheap, with an average of just HKD35 a month (about US$4 today) and no taxes were charged or paid. It was therefore very attractive for doctors and dentists and manufacturers who could practice without licenses, or people who could not afford to live elsewhere. The city's unique political status and anarchic conditions, however, made it an embarrassment for the British government, who after a difficult eviction process, started tearing it down in 1993. The demolition ended in April 1994. A year later, the place was transformed into a Qing Dynasty style garden. This animation recreates the historical process that lead to the creation of this fascinating city, and eventually to its disappearance. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

The older generation of the Guangzhou people have a solid and tough character, which Pang retains. Appearing in the film, there was a wordplay in the name of the dog meat shop, called "three hundred sixty-nine", of course, it's now gone. Why is it called "three hundred sixty-nine"? Because 3 plus 6 equals 9, 9 years in Cantonese with "dog" is a pronunciation, so "three hundred sixty-nine" refers to the word dog.

The famous, top quality Hong Kong copies were manufactured here. - In Hong Kong it was illegal to eat cats and dogs but in KWC there were restaurants that specialised. - The city didn't get running water until the 1960's. Even then it was diverted to triad run businesses so most people never got it. - A few of the streets were illuminated by fluorescent lights but most were too dark for me to film. - On upper levels there was a network of staircases and passageways which was so extensive that residents could travel north to south across the city without ever touching the ground. - In 1993 the Walled City was demolished and replaced by a commemorative park.

23/05/2016 News... Kowloon Walled City blighted by overcrowding, poverty and crime... Inside fortress city: Amazing images from the lawless Hong Kong slum which was once home to 30,000 and one of the most densely populated place on earth. Before it was demolished in 1994, Kowloon Walled City was regarded as the most densely populated place on earth About 33,000 people lived in the overcrowded slum in Hong Kong, where crime was accepted as part of daily life The six-acre settlement was essentially lawless due to a territorial dispute between China and British Hong Kong. Life inside Kowloon Walled City, the most densely populated place on earth, was far from easy before the chaotic cluster of interconnected high-rise buildings was demolished 20 years ago. Around 33,000 people lived in the overcrowded Hong Kong slum, which was blighted by poverty, organised crime, including drug dealing, gambling and prostitution, poor sanitation and inadequate services. Populated by families, business owners, drug addicts and gang members, the settlement was essentially lawless due to a territorial dispute between China and British Hong Kong, but both sides agreed in the 1980s to demolish it and replace it with a park. The former Chinese military site became a sprawling urban settlement after Japanese forces retreated during World War II and squatters moved in. Over the following decades it fell under the grip of the Triads, who were eventually forced out in the 1970s, and was notorious for brothels, casinos and opium dens as it lagged behind the rest of Hong Kong, although crime rates dropped in its later years. Before Kowloon Walled City was finally demolished in 1994, photographers Greg Girard and Ian Lambot spent five years capturing jaw-dropping images of daily life within the six-acre site - from children playing on rooftops to heroin addicts shooting up on the street. Kowloon Walled City, in Hong Kong, had more than 300 high-rise apartments and an estimated 33,000 people crammed within the site. Families with young children, who played on top of apartment buildings, lived among gang members and drug addicts in the slum. Food processors freely admitted that they moved into the city to benefit from the low rents and to seek refuge from health inspectors. Given the density of the six-acre site, residents had no immediate access to greenery and had to retreat to rooftops for sunlight. Employee Kwok Tsang Ming ladles a batch of fried fishballs into baskets in a small factory off Kwong Ming Street. Airline passengers had a stunning view of the walled city when the flew into Hong Kong's Kai Tak Airport, which closed in 1998. Ovens used for the roasting of pigs (left) raised temperatures inside the city. At right, a worker carries buckets of eels at a fishball factory. The government spent $2.7billion Hong Kong dollars in compensation and evacuations started in 1991. They were completed in 1992. For More News Subscribe Our Channel..THANK YOU

What if everybody in the world, all 7.4 billion of us all lived together in the same city? How big or small would this city have to be and how close together or far apart would we all be living from each other? This video explores those concepts and visualizes what a massive global city would look like were it to ever exist in the real world. Huge thanks to Ross Bugden for the excellent music, link below!
