電影 <<尚氣與十環幫傳奇>> (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) 上映後引來巨大回響，坊間有彈有讚﹔主持們亦有在 <<睇戲有幾難>> 做過電影的相關分施，事後 兩位主持再三細想，覺得電影內其中一節﹕文武 (梁朝偉飾) 跟 Katy ( Awkwafina 飾) 講述一個人的名字的意義，名字，並不只是個人的事，而是歷代祖先代代相傳，給予你的一種傳承。這段意味深長，值得再細講，特別是結合現在社會的狀況來看，在這個資訊核爆的年代，人好易掩沒在海量的資訊中，被大量有用或沒用的資訊蒙蔽，忘了自己的所在，若果能夠重新尋找自己的「根」，對認知自己以至整個人生，或會有截然不同的效果。

Niu Chi Wan Village has a history of more than 200 years and is one of the “Thirteen Kowloon Townships". With the rapid development of the city, most of the above areas have been developed as part of the city.

“Village in the city" does not feel like a product that Hong Kong should have. There were many villages in Hong Kong in the past, even in the urban area, but with the rapid development of Hong Kong, many original villages have also developed into part of the city. However, for some reasons, some villages can still be retained. They quietly exist in the bustling metropolis, retaining the old style and features, and at the same time retaining the unique culture of the village.
“Village in the city", in this series, this time we will introduce Pokfulam Village on Hong Kong Island. Pokfulam Village has a long history and has existed in the 17th century. In 1886, the Dairy Company was established in Hong Kong and a pasture was established in Pokfulam, which led to the development of Pokfulam Village. As the pasture ended in the early 1980s, Pokfulam Village gradually became silent.
Today, the relics related to the dairy company can still be found in the village. As for the village itself, it also has its own culture, such as the fire dragon dance on the Mid-Autumn Festival. This activity has been included in the list of “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Hong Kong" in 2017 .
