Chinks

Since we're going all United Colours of Benetton around here...



Written by and featuring Paul Courtenay Hyu, The Missing Chink stars Paul Chan (above), David Yip, Burt Kwouk, Rory Underwood MBE, Matt Wilkinson, Scott Corben and Simone Tully-Kedge.

Written on one level as comedy sketches and combining real-life vox-pops, each self-contained episode also raises issues, sometimes difficult to stomach (or agree with), leading to the controversial conclusion in the last episode, which is to be broadcast on Chinese New Year's eve (22nd Jan).

The "Missing Chink" of the title refers to the conspicuous absence of a British-East-Asian role model in the public eye, particulary in (but not restricted to) television. Powerless to do anything about the situation (working in a takeaway), our two protagonists while away their time watching telly and reading celebrity magazines, neither of which feature anyone they can aspire to be. The lack of a recognisable British-East-Asian actor, presenter, news-reader, sportsman, comedian or celebrity in the public domain, coupled with the characters' perception that they are sexually neutered by a hostile media is the background to why our two frustrated anti-heroes muse on a variety of subjects, which include football Vs rugby, Jamie Oliver, It Ain't Half Hot, Mum, sexy white women, Miss Saigon and EastEnders.



The full series of four films was shown in their entirety to open the Electric Shadows Chinese Film Festival in Glasgow, Scotland on the 23rd January 2004.

The worst possible racial slur to a Chinese or Korean is to call him "Japanese".
