Friday, October 13, 2006 – The National Television Network - NTN observes its fifth anniversary on October 14, 2006. Special activities to commemorate this milestone begin Friday 13th, as the department hosts an open day to provide the public with a more intimate understanding of the role and functions of NTN.

Director of Information Services with supervisory responsibility for the Government Information Service Mr. Embert Charles said several new initiatives have been specially designed to benefit the viewing public.

“In the programming for the day, we will be having occasional segments where we detail how various sections of the department operate. News and Current Affairs, Information Technology and Network Administration, the production department as well as the studio operations, will be explained to the public live and of course this will be repeated later on during the day.”

NTN will also in the coming weeks and months capture a wider cross section of local and international audiences.

“ Another innovation and perhaps one of the announcements we certainly will be making is that NTN is streaming via the internet so people in Saint Lucia who do not have Cable TV but have internet access could get on to NTN and of course people around the world would have access to our signals. This is really building on previous streaming initiatives, particularly the national budget.”

The web stream and other information on NTN can be found on the Government of Saint Lucia's website at Other highlights of the anniversary includes a facelift to NTN's studios and a special anniversary broadcast schedule which will be punctuated by several local productions throughout the weekend.

The National Television Network was officially launched on October 14, 2001, as a public broadcasting service. Since its inception NTN has had significant successes in providing alternative programmes in public television, increasing the volume of local programming, provide opportunities for local producers, communities and organisations to tell their stories through the broadcast medium and serve as a feedback channel for public sector agencies and national organisations.
