40 TODAY": NATIONAL DAY VIDEO (NDV) 2005

 

 

 

            The National Day Video is an annual production commissioned by the Ministry of Information, Communications & the Arts (MICA) and carried prime-time over MediaCorp�s TV channels � 5, 8, U, Suria and Vasantham Central �during the national day celebrations period in August.

 

2          The Video is also a feature of National Day Observance Ceremonies and ND events conducted by a number of Ministries, statutory bodies and agencies, schools and other institutions, grassroots, unions, community groups, non-profit organisations, overseas missions and student groups and private sector partners. 

 

3          This year's Video, titled "40 Today", produced by Mega Media Pte Ltd, looks to the future through the eyes of the post-independence generation. The Video showcases 40 young Singaporeans under 40 who shine in their own way and make up a mosaic that is uniquely Singapore. Amongst others, it features a volunteer who put her career on hold to lend a helping hand; a sportsman who triumphed against insurmountable odds to do Singapore proud and a reformed gang member who topped his cohort - securing 6 distinctions in the 2004 N-levels and many more unsung heroes of this generation - who share with the nation their hopes and dreams for themselves and for Singapore.

 

4            In support of Singapore's 40th birthday, a host of commercial sponsors have also contributed air-time to screen the ND Video over a range of media platforms such as video walls and billboards, cable TV channels, aircraft and on plasma TV in shopping malls, supermarkets, trains and station platforms. The Video can also be downloaded from the Singapore Infomap website at http://www.sg.

 

5          The Video will be telecast on MediaCorp�s TV channels beginning 8 August 2005 in four languages. There will be repeated telecasts until 21 August 2005.
