Countdown to the arrival of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with ntv7
The channel which brought you the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011 with over 2.3 million Malaysian viewers AND later the airing of a special documentary to commemorate the Royal Couple’s 1st anniversary this year, is set to give Malaysians yet another unforgettable experience when The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge make their visit to Malaysia, including Kuala Lumpur and Sabah, from 13 – 15 September, in celebration of The Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. In the run-up to the much-awaited visit, ntv7, Malaysia’s preferred TV station will be counting down with all Malaysians from 1st September onwards through its “Will & Kate – The Malaysian Tour” special, where a host of initiatives will be carried out during the 12-day countdown.
To kick things off, the FEEL GOOD channel will be making a grand shout out on the tour through a list of publicity efforts that will be carried out including special highlights in its in-house talkshows, news & current affairs programmes, social media platforms, as well as a string of promotional clips that will be aired on the channel. The Twitter community nationwide is welcomed to use a special hashtag initiated by ntv7 – “#mywillnkate” – in all their messages which discuss about the Royal Couple’s visit. All these efforts will also be supported by Media Prima Berhad’s TV Networks, TV3, 8TV, and TV9 as well as its Radio Networks, Fly FM, Hot FM, and one FM.
Meanwhile, starting September 9, ntv7 will be airing a list of documentaries on the Royal Monarch as well as the love story of Prince William and Kate. Viewers will also be treated to great movies on the channel throughout the countdown period. Aside from these top notch entertainment programmes, news savvy Malaysians will be fed with daily segmented stories in ntv7’s news editions including 7 Edition, Edisi 7, and Mandarin 7, starting September 12. More information on these will be released soon.
“It was definitely one of ntv7’s historical moments when the station aired Will & Kate’s wedding in 2011, which captured over 2.3 million Malaysian viewers. That is also the reason why we decided to air a special documentary – “William & Kate: A First Anniversary Celebration” – about the couple to commemorate their first anniversary in April this year. With these two great efforts carried out by ntv7, it is a natural fit that the channel initiates the “Will & Kate – The Malaysian Tour” special, where it countdowns with all Malaysians to anticipate and celebrate the arrival of the Royal Couple,” said Airin Zainul, Group General Manager of ntv7 & 8TV.
“Will & Kate definitely have a big following in Malaysia. Not only are they known for their good works in charity, but the duo also characterises a fairy-tale loving couple,” Airin added.
To thank its faithful viewers, ntv7 which recently celebrated its 14th anniversary, will be running a soon-to-be-announced, “Watch & Win” Will & Kate – The Malaysian Tour contest, where winners will stand a chance to win great prizes – watch out for more details on this.
Aside from all these exciting happenings, the Home of Feel Good has more in store for its viewers where the channel will be airing a 1-hour special “Will & Kate – The Malaysian Tour”. In this special, viewers will be able to watch footages taken from the 3-day tour of the Royal Couple in the country. The show will also feature exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes with the two winners from “The Ultimate Royal-Tea Competition” organised by the British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur. The competition will see two lucky winners win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the Royal Couple at a tea party organised by the High Commission. The contest was announced early this week where participants must submit a digital photo of themselves, friends, or family enjoying tea in a creative way by September 1. Information on how to participate can be found in http://ukinmalaysia.fco.gov.uk/en/ or Facebook page www.facebook.com/bhckl.
The Royal Couple’s visit to Malaysia is the 2nd leg of their tour through Singapore (11 – 13 September), Solomon Islands (16 – 18 September) and Tuvalu (18 – 19 September) to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, which marks 60 years since her accession in 1952. Celebrations were previously held for Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee in 1977 and Golden Jubilee in 2002.
