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 .
