|• Malay||Bukit Caldecott|
In the 1930s, the first broadcasting station by the British Malayan Broadcasting Corporation was set up on Caldecott hill. The company, now known as MediaCorp, is still located in this area. Hence, the name has become a metonym for the local television and broadcasting industry. It is also referred to as "The Hill" by the local media and MediaCorp employees.
Caldecott Hill is named after respected British colonial administrator and former Governor of Hong Kong Sir Andrew Caldecott, who had served in various posts around British Malaya (Officer Administering the Government of the Straits Settlements and High Commissioner for the Malay States in 1934) for nearly three decades.
