Episode sum­ma­ry
This rail­way sta­tion has been on our soil for decades, but yet for the longest time, it did not belong to us. Despite run­ning faith­ful­ly every day for more years than some of us can remem­ber, we have always labelled it as for­eign soil. Sim­i­lar­ly, the many for­eign work­ers that ply our land are always strug­gling to find their iden­ti­ty in a coun­try they have looked to for hope, but could nev­er call their own.

I Remem­ber KTM: A con­test organ­ised by the Nation­al Library Board in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Redis­cov­er­SG.
5 sets of our Unseen/Unsaid paper toys to be giv­en away week­ly. Find out more here.

About Unseen/Unsaid
Using nar­ra­tives from every­day Sin­ga­pore­ans to per­son­i­fy for­got­ten trades and places, Unseen/Unsaid allow view­ers a glimpse into the per­son­al strug­gles of indi­vid­ual Sin­ga­pore­ans whose sto­ries draw a par­al­lel with the sur­round­ing places and land­scapes. The 10-part series is born out of a desire to pre­serve the frag­ments of Singapore’s past that is rapid­ly being replaced by new devel­op­ments.

One new episode will be released from 29 June, 2011, every Wednes­day, 11.00AM on rediscover.sg till the week of 31 August, 2011.

The Unseen/Unsaid Paper Toys Col­lec­tion
As a tie-in with our Unseen/Unsaid series, Lizzy and Jere­my of the Redis­cov­er­SG crew have spent the past few months design­ing a set of five paper toys relat­ed to the people/places fea­tured in our webisodes.

These DIY paper toys are retail­ing at $20 for a set of 5. 100% of the pro­ceeds from the first 500 sets sold will go to the MILK (Main­ly I Love Kids) fund to sup­port chil­dren from dis­ad­van­taged back­grounds.

If you’ll like to buy a set, head over to our shop. Toys are sold while stocks last. We ship both local­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly.

    The rail­way sta­tion is actu­al­ly quite inter­est­ing.

    OK, I REALLY love this series but I can do with­out the try-too-hard-to-be-poignant sto­ry­lines. A lit­tle nos­tal­gia is great for the soul but too much and it smells des­per­ate but I want to rein­force that it’s a GREAT job in terms of cap­tur­ing the feel & mood. I can almost smell the place!
