Sir John Swan to feature in next episode of Conversations with a Former Premier on CITV
An interview with the island’s longest-serving premier will debut on CITV on Monday.
In the second part of the Conversations with a Former Premier series, Sir John Swan will discuss some issues he faced during his 13-year tenure, including developing Bermuda’s international business industry, transforming the island’s infrastructure and spearheading a failed referendum on independence.
Sir John, a National Hero, served as Premier from 1982 to 1995 in the United Bermuda Party government and led it to four successful general elections.
Tina Evans, from the Department of Communication and Information, interviewed him for the series.
She said: “Sir John is a masterful negotiator and shrewd politician who has skilfully developed relationships both here and internationally.
“Sir John takes great pride in his contributions to developing a modern Bermuda equipped for the 21st century.”
The interview will air at 9.30am, 5.30pm and 8pm daily until February 3.
The first episode of Conversations with a Former Premier debuted in November and featured Alex Scott, who served in the role from 2003 to 2006 under the Progressive Labour Party government.
Ewart Brown, Premier from 2006 to 2010, also under the PLP, will be featured in the series’ next episode.
