YesAsia Editorial Description

ATV's Fatherland is the station's most classic drama from the RTV years, even beating out TVB in the ratings battle when it started airing in 1980. Fatherland was broadcast in three installments - Home on the River Pearl, Radical City, and American Dream - with the most memorable being the first installment. Set in the late Qing to the early Republican era, Fatherland - Home on the River Pearl is an epic story of small rural life and sweeping historical changes. Hailing from a small Guangdong village, the humble Yeung family and the trials and tribulations they face paint a realistic portrait of the times, from the major historical events and political winds - the establishment of the Republic of China, the Yuan Shikai era - that serve as backdrop, to the individual ordeals that tell the story of so many. With a cast that included David Lau, Ngok Wah, Candice Yu, Poon Chi Man, Bill Tung, and Moon Lee, Fatherland - Home of the River Pearl's sweeping depiction of family, romance, timeless values, and heartrending struggles in rural China served as the model for TVB's later series of Plain Love dramas.

  澳門一下子湧來十多萬難民,哀鴻遍野,無以維生,九斤為救全家,毅然賣身赴美,與潔貞成親三日,便要分離,六斤則要負起照顧家人的重任。

FATHERLAND Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The 1980 ATV trilogy of 大地恩情 (家在珠江,古都驚雷,金山夢) was superbly produced, directed and acted! Not only was it entertaining, it was educational, especially for my daughter who was born in the US, where access to history about southern China during this tumultuous period is non-existent. Our family was enlightened, saddened, and shell-shocked by we've learned about China from watching this beautifully directed TV series. Filmed on locations in China, it traces the tumultuous period in modern China from pre-1911 Revolution to the early republic. I wish Hong Kong would make more TV movies like this!

Adding emotions to the movies are several theme songs beautifully written and masterfully sung by Michael Kwan.

Best series ever !!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This series is a must for anybody of Cantonese descent. You will appreciate your ancestors so much more when you see what they had to deal with. My grandmother and great grandmother said that the series was very realistic; several parts of the series brought the whole family, young and old, to tears.
Its a shame that they dont' make series like this anymore! Everything about this series was quality - the actors, the setting, the plot, and especially the attention to detail (everything flowed and all characters actions were logical). There wasn't a single wasted scene. The producers of the series and the actors showed a lot of heart in this series.

One minor negative, the ending to Fatherland (I) is a bit open-ended. For completion and satisfaction purposes you will probably want to purchase Fatherland (II) and (III). That's a big hole in your wallet :) Fatherland II was good but not great and cannot be compared to Fatherland (I). If YesAsia or anywhere else is still carrying this series (hint: best to ask to make sure they have the whole set available for purchase - not just half the series) obtain it.

Truely a classic. Great acting, music, and costume. True reflection of Gongdong village life style of the early 20th century to even the 80s before China opened up.
