Local TV show debuts

A new television programme providing an inside look at the Cayman Islands Government made its debut Monday.

Produced by Government Information Services, the weekly programme highlights government’s initiatives about issues that concern and affect residents.

Spotlight will air Mondays at 6.30pm on Cayman 27 and again at 7.30pm on Island 24.

This week’s show looks into why the Department of Agriculture is using beetles and wasps to fight the dreaded Pink Hibiscus Mealybug; and how the public’s correct use of 911 emergency communications helps to save lives.

In addition, viewers will learn about the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands’ educational centre for aspiring artists exploring diverse styles. From their armchairs, they also can take a trip through the flora and fauna of Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park.

‘We really are happy that Spotlight is on the air,’ GIS’ Chief Information Officer Pat Ebanks said in a press release.

‘A few years ago, GIS produced a television show about government services that the public enjoyed and appreciated,’ she noted. ‘We’ve had a lot of requests to bring it back, including from Cabinet.’

Viewers are asked to e-mail their comments or suggestions about Spotlight to its producers, at [email protected].
