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 firstname.lastname@example.org
