Traditional Chinese characters

Traditional Chinese characters are Chinese characters in any character set that does not contain newly created characters or character substitutions performed after 1946. They are most commonly the characters in the standardized character sets of Taiwan, of Hong Kong and Macau, and in the Kangxi Dictionary. The modern shapes of traditional Chinese characters first appeared with the emergence of the clerical script during the Han Dynasty, and have been more or less stable since the 5th century.

Hong Kong people people from Hong Kong, China

Hongkongers, also known as Hong Kongese, are people who originate from Hong Kong. These terms are a special identity for those who hold the legal residency in Hong Kong. Most of the Hongkongers were born and bred, or at least bred in Hong Kong sharing the same set of core values of Hong Kong. The terms itself have no legal definition by the Hong Kong Government; more precise terms such as Hong Kong Permanent Resident and Hong Kong Resident are used in legal contexts. However, the word "Hongkonger" was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary in March 2014.

Rediffusion Television was the first television station in Hong Kong, making it both the first British colony and the first predominantly Chinese city to have television. It began as a radio station in 1949 and became Asia Television on 24 September 1982.
