'The place of remembering the past in the present remains unclear in cultural studies. Within historiography, there is tension between cataloguing historical fact and generating a sense-experience of a past time. One of these trajectories relies on the hardened selection of primary sources for linear verification. The other generates poetics, imaginings and intuition, for an emotional connection to a past place or politics... 'Changi' is unique television as it creates a space for a re-imagining of the past and the formation of popular memories that are an alternative to the dominant remembering of war-time.'
