The Cheng Kok-kong’s Oral History Interview project is an extension of the "Cheng Kok-kong’s Lyric Manuscript Collection" to recall the stories behind the lyric manuscripts. The project includes interview recordings with Mr. Cheng Kok-kong at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Library, and it aims at enriching the content of the Manuscript Collection. The interview recordings are divided in to six categories, including “Becoming a Lyricist”, “Creations and Inspirations”, “Characteristics of Lyrics”, “The Inspirational Lyricist”, “Songs for Children” and “Cheng Kok-kong’s Lyric Manuscript Collection”. The content of the recordings includes how Cheng had become a lyricist, background of some of his lyrics, lyric-writing culture of local pop music, and Cantopop history in Hong Kong.
Developed by the Chinese University of Hong Kong since 2009, the Hong Kong History and Society archived various types of historical materials, including manuscripts, genealogy records, photos, Hong Kong Blue Books v.1844 - 1938, etc.
