Hall of Wisdom: Josephine Siao
Hall of Wisdom: Josephine Siao

Co-presented by GE and RTHK since 2016, the lecture series, Hall of Wisdom has been well received by students and the public, and the programme ranked among the top ten programmes in the “2016 TV Programme Appreciation Index Survey”. This semester, we continue this prominent programme and bring masters from different sectors to HKU to share their stories. Note that mindless replication of past success will not make you successful. We invite you to ask questions, refresh yourselves with their drive and dynamism, and turn their experiences into invaluable wisdom. You can use this knowledge transfer to make your contribution to your continued success, in all aspects of your lives.
The half-hour highlights of Hall of Wisdom will be broadcast every Sunday at 22:00 on RTHK TV 31 starting 21/10/2018 (Sun), and every Wednesday at 18:00 on TVB Jade, starting 24/10/2018 (Wed), while the full versions will be broadcast every Saturday at 13:00 on RTHK TV 31 starting 5/1/2019 (Sat).

At the age of 71, how does Josephine Siao struggle with her ceaseless learning?
From the age of six, Siao was moving people to tears and laughter with films. She was one of the Seven Princesses formed in 1960s along with actresses Connie Chan and Nancy Sit, etc. Despite the fame, she walked away from her promising career to pursue studies in the US. After her graduation, Siao created the very popular comic character Lam Ah-chun. She achieved international recognition with the film Summer Snow (1995) which won her best actress awards. Siao founded the End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation with the aim of raising public awareness of the issue.
This is the first live interview with audience since Siao has hearing loss in both ears. Let’s convert our voice to text and body language. We will look into Siao’s legendary past, explore her significance to Hong Kong, and discuss how to live an amazingly wonderful life.
This is the sixth episode of Hall of Wisdom in the First Semester, 2018 – 2019.
