SINGAPORE: Some 200 people gathered on Saturday evening (July 26) at the National Museum to revisit the lives of Singapore's Chinese immigrants and to learn how they helped the nation in Singapore's early years.

They watched a special screening of Footprints - a four-part documentary about Singapore's earliest migrant communities. Those who attended included students and members of clan associations.

The event is a tie-up between Channel NewsAsia and the National Heritage Board, and is part of the celebrations of Singapore's Heritage Festival.

Footprints was first shown on Channel NewsAsia in March. It has been adapted into Mandarin and will be aired from August 10 on Channel 8 at 10.30pm.
