The culture and history of Kaohsiung City will be featured on the Discovery Channel through the tales of six local residents. "Kaohsiung is the city that best represents the beauty of Taiwan's ocean, with its friendly people and nice weather," Kaohsiung's Acting Mayor Yeh Chu-lan (葉菊蘭) remarked at the program's pre-shooting press conference held on Monday at the True Love Wharf alongside Kaohsiung Harbor. The program is being produced by the Discovery Channel in conjunction with the Kaohsiung City Government. Four of the Kaohsiung residents featured in the program also attended the press conference, including an architect, a yacht designer, a barfly and an extreme sportswoman. The program is scheduled to be broadcast next year, with an estimated viewership of over 500 million homes in 50 countries.
