Yellowthread Street (TV Series) - Bruce Payne (1990) - Hong Kong Stadium, So Kon Po

A quick look at a pre-renovation Hong Kong Stadium. It's famous around the world for being the venue where the HK Rugby 7's is played, and in fact this episode - Number 10: Chinese Boxes - starts off with lots of footage from the tournament.

The ground was renovated with its current clam-shaped roof in 1994, and strictly speaking when this series was made, it was still known as the 'Government Stadium'. Actually, a personal confession...I may be the only gwailo who has never been to the Rugby 7's (ssh! don't tell anyone).
