The series, which will be featured on television, radio, social media and in print, will run monthly until November 2016.
Deputy Chief Information Officer, Ian Inniss, said the aim of the project was to highlight Barbadians, both known and unknown, who have made a significant contribution to the community.

The series began on radio on Monday, featuring local surfing sensation, Chelsea Tuach. The Deputy Chief explained that the individuals selected would also appear on television on the final Thursday of each month, and the programmes would be posted on the BGIS??? YouTube channel thebgis.
???In addition, you can see some of the behind-the-scenes from each film shoot on our YouTube channel. So, it should be an exciting and worthwhile contribution to the overall celebrations for our country???s golden milestone,??? Mr. Inniss concluded.
