What? Who? This/That/It (What's This?/It's A ____)
Sut Yung Ying Yee was a bilingual Chinese and English TV-series co-produced by the Chinese Media Committee of Chinese for Affirmative Action and KPIX-TV Westinghouse in 1971 and aired starting in 1971 on KPIX Channel 5. The series was produced and directed by filmmaker Loni Ding, one of the founders of the National Asian American Telecommunications Association, now the Center for Asian American Media. Sut Yung Ying Yee was her first produced/directed series. The series was created to help Cantonese-speaking Chinese immigrants in San Francisco Chinatown learn English. The series received an Emmy award and marked an opening for Asian American representation in television programming. Larry Lew, a teacher with the San Francisco Unified School District, was the teacher-host of the series. Theme music was composed, arranged, and played with Chinese instruments by David Liang, a musicologist at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. A theme painting was designed and created by Chinese artist Wong Lui Sang. A four-part handbook was also created to accompany the TV series, created by Penny Larson.
