                                      April 25, 2001   Simon Yam has donated HK $50,000 to an elementary school in 

                                  Shenyang, China.  Sanney translated the following quotes from Simon on the 

                                   contribution: "I've been making a lot of trips to the Mainland these past few 

                                   years and I've noticed that the schools in rural communities are in really bad 

                                      shape. So, I decided to help them out. Recently, I found out that the local 

                                      government in Shenyang was trying to raise money to build a school so I 

                                       donated some of my money. Actually, HK$50,000 is not enough. I plan to 

                                    organize some fund raising events to raise HK$200,000! I've always valued

                                   education.  Moreover, when I play golf, I meet with a lot of businessmen and 

                                they have donated many books, paper and stationery to the school. It's helped 

                                    cut down on expenses. I also plan to have a small library built for the school

                                                                       so the children can learn more."

                                             April 12:     The HK Broadcasting Authority has given ATV a "warning" over an

                                         episode of Legend: A Dream Named Desire that aired on January 29th. 

                                  The complaint was directed at the suicide of the character Chris' son, and the

                                    negative message it conveyed to the audience about overcoming problems. 

                                    The press release notes that only the parents grief, particularly the father

                                       (played by Simon Yam) countered the tragic effect of the young boy's

                                                                 death, but it was still not strong enough.
