I'm known as Dee and I am a British Born Chinese who has worked in TVB in Hong Kong as a production assistant. I am also a presenter and producer on Eastern Horizon (previously known as “Chinatown”) - a BBC Radio Manchester programme, broadcast on 95.1FM. In addition to this, I produce my own Cantonese audio for 緣份站 Fate Station which is an online media publishing platform.
On this page there is a small selection of clips taken when I was producing and interviewing guests for Eastern Horizon. Please use the audio player below to navigate. Most clips are short unless otherwise indicated as an interview.

Eastern Horizon is a weekly programme about the Chinese community in Greater Manchester and the North West regions. It broadcast from 1983 to 2018, originally in Cantonese, then Mandarin was included before it became a wholly English language programme. I joined the programme in April 2010 under the direction of Juanita Yau, the Producer. Since then, I have been able to meet lots of different people from different places (including China, Hong Kong and Taiwan) and have fun talking to them on air.

Fate Station is my own media publishing project. I extended my DJing to include my native tongue of Cantonese to bring an audio programme to the local Chinese community. I also chose to use this opportunity to share my knowledge of the Chinese culture which is very diverse, and to promote the use of the Cantonese language which is a dying language in China as Mandarin has become more dominant as it is the official language.
