unique audience of 95 million1.

Alistair McEwan, Senior Vice President, Commercial Development, BBC Worldwide Asia, Australia and New Zealand said: "I am proud of the fruitful relationship between BBC Advertising and Brand Hong Kong which has enabled this truly integrated campaign, illustrating that there is way more to Hong Kong than meets the eye. 'City of Inspiration' is a prime example of great content combined with smart use of insights to deliver an innovative brand solution."

Brett Free, the Deputy Director of Information Services Department, HKSAR Government said, "We welcomed the creative options that the BBC StoryWorks team delivered to help
us reveal different aspects of Hong Kong to a global audience. There are many different layers and aspects to life in Hong Kong that are lesser known, but no less important, than
the common perceptions of Hong Kong as a high rise metropolis and financial centre. BBC Storyworks has helped us reveal our "City of Inspiration" in a creative and engaging way."
