By Graham Bound, London - HAROLD Briley, a BBC World Service journalist who reported from Buenos Aires throughout the 1982 Falklands War, has received a special and rare honour from the government of the Islands.
In June 2018, the Falkland Islands Government issued an invitation to tender for a single supplier professional services framework contract. The framework will assist delivery of the Government’s capital investment programme, which includes developing the sixth phase of Sapper Hill, new port facilities, upgrades to the MPA terminal and improvements to Stanley Airport.
Falklands' television viewers in Stanley will be able by the end of the month, weather permitting, to again have a full service of its former level of transmission. A release from the Falklands government recalls that viewers are well aware of the problems encountered over the last nine month, caused by the TV transmitter falling from the mast on Sapper Hill.
