The Pearl Report Wikipedia
The show is divided into two segments to make up a half-hour show. In-depth documentaries normally last the entire duration of the programme but some stories take up just a single segment.
Each segment begins with an introduction from the show's host, Diana Lin, also its Senior Executive Producer. The stories often start with a teaser to set the tone. Part One usually ends with a hook, giving viewers a taste of what's to follow in Part Two. After a commercial break Diana Lin reappears to introduce the next part, which tends to contain greater focus than the first segment. The host returns at the end of the programme to sign off with "Good night, good luck and good health".
