On the Red Dot brings back the well-rated neighbourhood series for its fourth season, as we explore the nooks and crannies of Singapore. We take viewers through familiar districts, surprise them with finds they never knew and acquaint them with the history and heritage of the area. In the second episode of That’s My Backyard, we explore Singapore’s first Border Town in the North – Woodlands. Seventy years ago, before re-development kicked in, Woodlands was dotted with villages and rubber plantations. In this episode, we see how despite having to move home because of re-development, the bonds of the long-time residents still remain strong. 80-year-old Noordin Noor shares his story growing up as the son of the village chief, and together with his village neighbour, recalls their emotional move out of the kampung. We also feature a hidden tunnel in the quiet forest of Marsiling and explore the Old Woodlands Town Centre, due to be closed while reluctant shop owners petition for a lease extension.
