Isle of Man plays host to the TV and Radio teams who will cover the IXth NatWest Island Games 2001

More than 20 television and radio journalists attended two media planning days hosted by the NatWest Island Games 2001 Executive Committee. The purpose of the planning days was to invite broadcast media from teh UK area to specify their requirements for press room facilities during the Games in July, and to enable open discussions between them and Island-based TV and Radio companies.

Media co-ordinator Ella Slack said : " We are grateful to everyone who was able to attend the planning days as their input will be helpful to us in establishing the media rooms and press centre to acommodate the media in July. We're also interested in hearing from anyone else who will be sending radio and TV representatives to cover the NatWest Island Games 2001. Anyone who has suggestions or queries about the provision of media facilities can contact us at any time."

Journalists can contact Ella Slack or press officer Daphne Caine at the Department of Tourism and Leisure, Sea Terminal, Douglas, Isle of Man IM7 1HN or e-mail
