Rob Hardcastle, Senior Lecturer in BA (Hons) Film Production, worked as Sound Designer on the upcoming TV documentary Hong Kong’s Rooftop Rebels.

The programme was aired on Sunday 28th August at 10.30pm as part of broadcaster Al Jazeera’s award-winning Witness strand, following three friends who scale the city’s towering skyscrapers in an act of rebellion against the establishment.

Rob said: “The Hong Kong environments offered plenty of scope for pushing the Sound Design to help tell the story.”

Witness is Al Jazeera’s English’s flagship observational documentary strand dedicated to telling human stories behind the news headlines.

The programme was broadcast worldwide on the 28th August and is now available to watch here:
