Some of [The Drive of Life] cast headed out to Beijing, Mainland China on November 11th, 2006. Among are Raymond Lam, Myolie Wu, Gigi Wong, Damien Lau, Ellesmere Choi, Ng Wai Kwok, Lau Gin Sang (mainland) and producer Poon Ka Tak.

As for other cast members like Charmaine Sheh, Ron Ng etc, they will only head out to Ningbo after the 20th this month. In addition, Feng Wei (mainland) is also filming in HK right now.

Pics of them filming car racing scene:

p.s. They were filming year 1994 above. Ray secretly went to participate in a racing competition and his father Damien found out about it and went to search for him, making Ray hiding left and right. Poon Ka Tak says that the 'Wah' family is very rich in HK, but Ray will squander it all. I think there's a mention that Ray will change his hairstyle, for now it's permed, but it will be straight in later storyline.

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Handover--A Super Grand Production!

"The Changing Times" is a grand production and participating cast members are full of confidence in this series. Charmaine Sheh said, "When this series is released, the entire 1.4 billion population of China will be able to see this drama."

Charmaine continued, "Since entering the industry, I have never worked with Myolie Wu before, so hopefully we will have new sparks together!"

"The plot focuses on the 10th anniversary of the Hong Kong handover to China. The impact of the Asian financial crisis and how people pick up their lives in the aftermath will be examined. Many audience members will likely be drawn to the plot since it reflects their own experiences [after the financial crisis]."

Ron Ng expressed that "The Changing Times" poses a new challenge for him. "I am excited to be working with many veternans, as I will be able to learn from them! Also I will be working with past co-stars Raymond Lam and Toby Leung. We will have a good collaboration together. Since it is my first time filming a 60 episode series and overseas shooting will be involved, this will be a new experience."

Selling Point:

TVB will be collaborating with China's CCTV channel to produce "The Changing Times." The series is set against the backdrop of the Hong Kong handover, following the epic joys and tragedies of its characters in a 10 year time-frame.

Despite running into obstacles and dead-ends, blood-ties will never be broken. "The Changing Times" will be filmed in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Canada.
