Fit for the Queen

The beacon comes alive to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

GIS Spotlight starts the week early airing on Sunday, 10 June, a special tribute to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Tune into Cayman27 at 8 p.m. Sunday to capture the action of the Jubilee at Pedro St. James.

Join us to participate in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee torch run that culminated in the lighting of the beacon, mirroring action in all Commonwealth and other countries to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's ascent to the throne.

Then take part in the official launch of Cayman's celebrations, featuring awards granted under the Order of the Cayman Islands to 89 persons in recognition of their contribution to the Cayman community, as well as entertainment and local food.

GIS Spotlight's regular programming airs on Wednesday at Cayman27 at 7.30 p.m. and on Saturday at 6 p.m. where we take another look at living green, slowing down, and paying respects to a memorable Caymanian lady.

Visit with us the Living Green Fair that transformed the lawn of Government House into an environment of hope for future generations. Hear about green initiatives underway and learn about Green Globe Certification.

After that, we transport you to the tranquil, soothing yet colourful atmosphere of the QE II Botanic Park. Discover how the park helps to spot wild birds and rare Blue Iguanas, learn about Cayman's green heritage or simply enjoy nature.

Finally, a stop at the National Archive helps us revisit the importance of the late Miss Annie Huldah Bodden to Cayman's democracy and history.

Produced by GIS Marketing and Communications, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you. The weekly programme airs Mondays on Cayman27 at 8 p.m. and on Saturdays at 6 p.m. Also Radio Cayman broadcasts on Tuesdays at 7 p.m the previous week's show.
