I make no comment on the news today. I am still crying.

CITN IS FIVE

What an amazing thing has come to pass

For the Cayman Islands to have live TV at last

A TV Station that’s first class in every way

‘Bringing the world to you’ all every day.

*

But it wasn’t live five year ago

We only had tapes lined off in a row.

Most of us had a TV set installed

*

Like another piece of furniture against a wall.

And there were those who could well afford

To pay thousands of dollars and went overboard

In having a satelite dish erected

But the expense of this was more than expected.

*

I even had a man come into my garden one day

To give me an estimate and hear what he’d say

About where exactly I could put a dish

In the front or back garden if I so wished.

*

But where I thought was a suitable spot

This so-called expert said it was not,

I would have to remove three trees you see

But I said this couldn’t happen, this couldn’t be.

*

So I didn’t get a dish like most people did

My trees were more important so I went without instead.

You see, my trees and I go back a long long time

As they came from my mother before TV came on line.

*

It seems ironic for me to own a TV Station

To bring live TV to the nation,

But as chairman of CITN and the wife of Colin Wilson

We promised good viewing, so what better reason.

*

So to all our subscribers I say happy viewing

We hope you enjoy the programmes you’re seeing,

And if you have suggestions or an opinion to voice

Just give us a call and let us know your choice.
