A landmark series of documentaries on Bermuda’s heritage, culture and history will return to the Government’s TV station as a tribute to its creator.

Lieutenant-Colonel Brendan Hollis, a former Commanding Officer of the Royal Bermuda Regiment who died this month aged 91, created 43 episodes of About Bermuda in the 1980s and 90s.

Ernest Peets, the Minister of Youth, Culture and Sport, offered condolences to Colonel Hollis’s family.

“The series won acclaim from all segments of the community and was regularly featured as part of the Department of Culture’s Bermudian Heartbeats programming,” he said.

“The complete series should stand as a permanent record of historical significance and will be a valuable reference source for future generations.

“We are for ever grateful for Colonel Hollis’s contribution to Bermuda’s legacy.”

Dr Peets said the CITV channel would broadcast the popular series in the days ahead, with the Department of Culture adding the films to its YouTube channel, Bermuda Culture.

About Bermuda will air daily at 7am, 11.30am, 7.30pm and midnight.
