60 Years of Cyprus Television
Cyprus television first broadcast in 1957. The development of Cyprus television and radio began in 1960, with the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus. During this period it changed its name from the Cyprus Broadcasting Service to the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation (CyBC) and has operated as a semi-governmental organisation since then.
A refreshing and creative spirit has marked the course of CyBC since independence.
Public Broadcasting evolved rapidly from its early days, with ever-increasing numbers of programmes, creative staffing and the renewal of transmitters and relay stations.
From the first day that CyBC started its operations it has recorded the daily life of the Cypriot people and has handled all crises with the seriousness and responsibility that its role demands, especially that of 1974.
100 Years of the Lions
The Lions (Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation’s Safety), the international association of clubs, is the largest organisation of volunteers in the world, providing services to people and society. For the past 100 years (1917-2017), under their slogan ‘WE SERVE’, the organisation has offered its services, free of political, religious, racial or other creeds and interests. It is represented in the United Nations and all charitable organisations. There are 46,000 Clubs with 1.400.000 members in 202 countries.
Key pillars of contribution are the environment, youth, vision and poverty. Through countless programmes, they plant thousands of hectares of trees, prevent blindness in millions of people, help to cure and fight diseases and dependencies and build schools and hospitals.
