NET TV coverage of Museum Project
New TV programme It-Tokk, hosted by Media.Link journalist Marion Zammit, this week features the major museum project that is unfolding in the historical centre of Victoria, Gozo. The thirty-minute, prime time programme, which is being broadcast today, Tuesday, May 3, 2011, at 8.30pm, will get a repeat screen next Sunday at 1.30pm.
Asked about the new programme, Marion Zammit said that the weekly programme’s concept focuses on the island of Gozo and features both government and private sector activities and initiatives as well as those being undertaken by voluntary organisations, such as Fondazzjoni Belt Victoria, which has won EU funding for the creation of a museum and cultural centre in the heart of Gozo’s Medieval town.
Marion Zammit, a Media.Link Communications Ltd journalist from Victoria, pens, produces and presents the programme, which hit the local airwaves last month, that also involves the talents of Gozitan video editor Julie Zammit and NET TV cameramen Bernie Dimech and Noel Zammit.
The programme also delights its viewers with “new aspects” of the historical and cultural richness of Gozo, too often unknown not only to television viewers residing on the island of Malta but also to Gozitans.
We have sought information about the forthcoming programme from the project coordinator, Archpriest Emeritus Mgr Joseph Farrugia, who told us that Ms Zammit and her colleagues had actually interviewed him and project leader Mr Antoine Vassallo, and had also done filming on the premises. The programme also shows the artists’ impression of the museum’s interior designs recently unveiled in Gozo by UK firm Brightwhite Co. Ltd.
Mgr Farrugia said that he was looking forward to watch It-Tokk and invited all those who are interested in the project to watch the NET TV programme, this Tuesday, 3 May, at 8.30pm, and failing that time slot, next Sunday at 1. 30pm.
Mgr Farrugia also encouraged other television stations and communications companies to take interest in all Gozo cultural projects, including this one that has been undertaken by the Fondazzjoni Belt Victoria, and give due coverage to all without prejudice.
Could I emphasize that the realization of this "dream" depends on the support of so many benefactors who give of their time, ideas and money?
This is synergically allied with substantial public funds:
as the big banner prominently states, 85% are being provided by the ERDF (European Regional Development Funds - Programme I); but we are also getting help from the Co-Funding Scheme (Parliamentary Secretariat for Consumers, Fair Competition, Local Councils and Public Dialogue) and Eco-Gozo NGO Scheme (Ministry for Gozo)
