The Pearl Report is a public affairs programme aired on TVB Pearl since 1 April 1988.

The show mainly deals with current affairs in Hong Kong, although there are also stories concerning wider regional and international issues, often produced abroad. Locations covered include the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Germany, Russia, Malaysia, Canada, Oman, Vietnam, Thailand, Japan, the Philippines, the United Arab Emirates and all different parts of China.

A broad spectrum of topic areas is covered on the Pearl Report, including political, social, health, education, human rights, economic and sport-related issues.


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 is 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".
