IL GRANDE FIUME: The River Po successfully documented by CVC MEDIA.
Between early spring and the first weeks of autumn, no less than five film crews who form the backbone of CVC Media, travelled for around 2,500 kilometres in the regions of northern Italy to film and document the story of a river…. Italy`s longest: the River Po. The 32 five minute mini documentaries will be regular weekly features in the 2016 – 2017 Malta u lil hinn minnha. Their style and content vary – just as the river Po meanders along its 650 kilometres from the Alps to the Adriatic.
The mini documentaries feature the high plateaus of the Alps, the mountain hamlets, several cities well known for their arts, history and culture like Moncalieri, Torino, Piacenza, Cremona and Ferrara, as well as small towns and villages that form the backbone of hard working communities in the Valle Padana and the Delta del Po.
The team was led by Alvin Scicluna who also researched and scripted the features. Ezio Sara`, CVC`s location manager in Italy coordinated the filming programme from start to finish. This venture, which was also acknowledged in the Italian media, will remain an everlasting experience for all the company`s personnel who were involved in this overseas adventure.
MALTA U LIL HINN MINNHA: Malta’s top TV cultural journalism programme in 2015/2016
For yet another year, CVC Media`s Malta u lil hinn minnha has once again been voted Malta`s best TV cultural programme. This award, organised by The Malta Institute of Journalists, is a welcome and fitting recognition to CVC Media`s nonstop efforts in promoting the many different aspects of the identity of the Maltese islands. The programme regularly presents features that expose the arts, history, culture, food and the natural environment that together make the Maltese islands unique. Moreover, this past winning edition also presented many success stories achieved by Maltese emigrants living in Australia…all filmed on location by CVC`s filmcrew.
The producers would like to thank all those involved…presenters, researchers and script writers, technical personnel and overseas logistic coordinators who, together, succeeded to produce and present this marathon cultural programme on a weekly basis.
Due credit also goes to the many programme sponsors and to Public Broadcasting Services Ltd who, since the programme inception, believed in us.

Tribute to Gordon Croton
CVC Media Group would like to record the memory of one of its main mentors and consultants, Gordon Croton – previously head at BBC TV Training Centre at Elstree, UK, who passed away recently. Gordon’s first hand advice and involvement were instrumental in the professional set up of CVC Ltd., thanks to his many visits to Gozo. In the early nineties, he enrolled our managing director Alvin in various training courses at BBC TV Training in Elstree, UK – notably the single camera production course, and the script to screen course. He personally supervised the day to day training that was accorded to Alvin in the presence of BBC internal staff. Gordon was also involved in various corporate productions and his scripts and voice overs in evergreen television documentaries are still appreciated by many. For years, together with his adorable wife Pat, Gordon was CVC’s godfather! Family and staff would like to forward heartfelt condolences to his sons Piers, Guy and Adam and their families. His teaching as well as the memories of beautiful moments spent in each other`s company will last forever.
