Official launch of See Belize Channel

BTB LAUNCHES BELIZE’S FIRST DEDICATED TRAVEL CHANNEL

The Belize Tourism Board (BTB), in collaboration with Color Blind Multimedia Productions and the National Institute for Culture and History (NICH), today officially launched the See Belize Channel, Belize’s first dedicated television travel channel, during a press conference held at the North Park Hotel in Belize City.

The See Belize Channel has been created to take viewers on journeys through the veins of Belize’s cultural, social and ecological beauty, enabling them to immerse into the heart and soul of our Jewel. Through original, authentic and high-quality video content, viewers will be able to truly hear, feel and See Belize.

“There are emerging trends in tourism that require that we constantly seek out new and creative ways of capturing the attention of travelers. This has led us to today and the BTB’s partnership with Color Blind Media and NICH, and the launching of Belize’s first ever Travel Channel – See Belize,” Hon. Manuel Heredia, Minister of Tourism & Civil Aviation, said during the launch.

The channel will be available via television as well as online, which means that it has strong potential to reach and capture the interest of our target markets. It will reinforce the BTB’s marketing efforts by showcasing the best of Belize to local and international audiences and will deeply enhance awareness of Belize as a premier tourism destination. It is BTB’s hope that Belizeans will also be inspired through the programming and choose to be “Belizean travelers” and to experience all that our beautiful country has to offer.


Belize now has a dedicated channel to promote the country as a travel destination for both locals and tourist. During a press conference held at the North Park Hotel in Belize City on Friday, December 6th, the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) and Color Blind Multimedia Productions (CBMP) announced the launch of ‘See Belize Travel Channel.” Aimed at showcasing the best Belize has to offer, the new channel is currently available for viewing on Channel 12 on Central Cable Vision (CCV), with a countrywide roll out coming soon.

Present at the conference was Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Honorable Manuel Heredia Jr., President of NICH, Sapna Budhrani, Director of Marketing and Industry Relations at BTB, Misty Michael, and Director of CBMP, Audrey Wallace. According to them “through original, authentic and high-quality video content, viewers will be able to truly hear, feel and See Belize.” The channel will feature locations from across Belize, highlight local food, wildlife and exclusive activities in the area. Through these videos’ visitors will become more informed on the particular area of travel they wish to go to as well as showcase the beauty of traveling within Belize to locals.

BTB will continue with its “Belize: A Curious Place” motto. According to Heredia, this channel will only add to BTB’s continued marketing efforts. He reassured at the conference that Belize remains as one of the Caribbean’s top tourism destinations. “Emerging trends in tourism require that we constantly seek out new and creative ways of capturing the attention of travelers. Heading into the new year, we will continue to development and improve the tourism industry for the benefit of Belize,” said Heredia.

Apart from promoting Belize as a leading tourism destination, the See Belize Travel Channel will act as a means of educating viewers on the culture and traditions that are upheld today in modern society across communities in Belize.

A New Way To See Belize

Those of you who love browsing TV channels can now check out Belize's first channel, it's called See Belize Travel Channel. The Belize Tourism Board, Color Blind Multimedia Productions and NICH launched the channel today. I found out about the content and why this channel is going to be a game changer for tourists and Belizeans alike.

Courtney Weatherburne reporting
These are just a few of the breathtaking shots that will be featured on the See Belize Channel.

There will also be several TV series and different programs that locals and tourists can follow that highlight everything Belize.

The channel was officially launched today at the North Park Restaurant but it made it's debut last night on channel 12 on the Central Cable Vision network.

Hon. Manuel Heredia, Minister of Tourism
"As you see we were here for the launching of these video shots over here, we partnered with color blind to make sure we can show case the Belizean experience."

Audrey Wallace, Director, Color Blind Multimedia Productions
"One of the important things is that the audience that we are seeking is people who are visitors who are already in country, once they are here they may not have known they are here during lobster fest or Cocoa fest or we just went through the month of November and the big highlight is the celebration of our Garifuna people they may not know that so these things allow them to look at what is happening around them and they may extend their stay and spend more money."

While the travel channel appeals primarily to tourists, it is also for Belizeans to learn and explore their country.

Audrey Wallace, Director, Color Blind Multimedia Productions
"We realize that this local cable channel is just as important to potential visitors as it is to our own people, they come back with such pride expressing Oh my God, I didn't know we had such beautiful places, I did not know we offered these opportunities and these experiences in our very own back yard so there is an important role that this cable channel will provide for our own Belizean people to explore, experience our Belize."

"The journey of the See Belize Channel just begins today because we have loaded up the first content and it is going to be constantly updated but we also welcome feedback, this platform that we have created is not only for color blind to fill, we welcome other creatives in the industry if they have great ideas to work along with us to create content for this platform."

As you heard, you can catch See Belize on channel 12 on CCV. It will soon be available on all local cable networks countrywide. The online version of the channel will also be up and ready next Friday. You can also check out ColorBlind's facebook page, See Belize facebook page or you can call Color Blind at 223-2548 for more information.

See Belize is Launched as Belize’s First Travel Channel

The C.E.O. in the office of the Prime Minister, Audrey Wallace, in her role as the owner of Colorblind Productions, a private company, has partnered with B.T.B. and NICH to launch a travel channel called See Belize. The event has held today in Belize City. News Five’s Isani Cayetano has a report.

Isani Cayetano, Reporting

Belize’s first travel channel, is a partnership between the Belize Tourism Board, the National Institute for Culture and History and Color Blind Multimedia Productions.  The See Belize Channel is a visual showcase of the country’s rich cultural, social and natural splendor.

Audrey Wallace, Color Blind Multimedia

“So what can you expect on this channel?  What can you expect?  It spans the gamut, whatever you could think about.  What do we eat?  What do we enjoy?  What are the tourist attractions in each and every district?  What are the adventure tours that we can do?  What about our animals?  What about our flora?  All of that and much more.  If people want to invest in Belize what are the real estate places that they can look at?  It really, truly spans the gamut.  We have incredible natural resources, we have incredible cultural history here.”

It is that colourful past that is being used to generate original, authentic and high-quality video content.

Manuel Heredia Jr., Minister of Tourism

“There is no doubt that Belize is one of the world’s leading tourism destination’s in the Caribbean.  In fact, as Minister of Tourism, I am happy to say that the industry sustained success during the past eleven years can be attributed to our strategic marketing initiatives to promote Belize, ongoing collaboration with local and international agencies and partners such as Color Blind Media and continued development and improvements to both properties and services by industry partners.  While these activities have been important contributors to the industry’s growth, emerging trends in tourism require that we constantly seek out new and creative ways of capturing the attention of travelers.”

The brainchild of the Audrey Wallace, Chief Executive Officer in the Office of the Prime Minister, who also holds a seat on the board of the Belize Broadcasting Authority , See Belize is touted as having strong potential to reach, as well as capture the interest of visitors.  Six months ago, Color Blind approached the National Institute of Culture and History to collaborate on the effort.

Sapna Budhrani, President, NICH

“We were excited to hear what the channel has to offer, not for the tourism impact but more for the cultural impact and how it will show our communities, our culture, our Belize in a creative way.”

According to Wallace, the programming content is not limited to travel related material.  It will also serve as a medium for Belizean artists to share original music as well.

Audrey Wallace

“I think this is a great platform for us to be able to promote our local artist and Color Blind is not in the habit of using anybody’s music or anything without permission.  And so one of the things that we want to do is to actually have a conversation with artists for them to see the opportunity and for us to partner.  So that means money.  When we make money, they make money, it’s that simple.  Everyone can win with this.  At this point we are in the hole big time but we are hoping that that will change as soon as more people come onboard.  So we see this as an amazing platform to promote our local culture, our local artists and so that is the plan.”

=====================

Swing Bridge

The Swing Bridge is a unique wonder in all of the world! It is the oldest Swing Bridge in Central America and the ONLY remaining manually swung bridge in the entire world!

The bridge was constructed in England and delivered to Belize by the Jefferson Construction Company. After the bridge was installed, vehicular and pedestrian traffic would come to a standstill in downtown Belize City EVERY day, once in the morning and again in the evening, to allow boats to pass.

=====================

Community Baboon Sanctuary

The Community Baboon Sanctuary is an ecological wonder From the Heart of Belize! It is home to over 3,000 Black Howler Monkies who amaze thousands of visitors yearly.

The Community Baboon Sanctuary protects the resident mammals from hunting and logging, and has, over the course of decades, formed an intimate bond with the Black Howler Monkeys!

=====================

Belize Zoo

The Belize Zoo is the Best little zoo in the world, housing over 100 exotic animals and birds!

It is one of the best things you can do in Belize In A Day!

=====================

Belize City

Belize City is the 'Old Capital' of Belize and is still the main financial center.

Belize City boasts a rich, Colonial history with scores of Colonial architecture serving as reminders.

Museums, parks, and monuments preserve the political and social history of the Old Capital, while fun bars, restaurants, and nightclubs keep the City buzzing!

=====================

St John's Cathedral

The St. John's Anglican Cathedral isn't any ordinary building.

Construction began in 1812 when the first cornerstone was laid. The Church has since served the Anglican congregation in Belize for over 200 years and is also the only church outside of Europe that has hosted the crowning of Kings!

=====================

Baron Bliss Lighthouse

Baron Henry Edward Bliss was a wealthy Englishman.

Once, he was sailing through the Caribbean and got caught in a storm which forced him to seek a safe harbor in Belize’s calm waters.

Although Baron Bliss was confined to a wheelchair, he fell in love with Belize’s beauty, and the Belizeans he had the chance to interact with.

He left a significant portion of his estate for the benefit of Belize - making him the country's single largest benefactor. The iconic Baron Bliss Lighthouse and a granite grave were erected in his honor following his death.

=====================

Caye Caulker

"Go Slow" is the trademark phrase associated with Caye Caulker, a small island off the coast of Belize.

Caye Caulker boasts an organic island experience, with beaches that are the envy of many. Caye Caulker is the perfect place to visit when planning snorkeling or diving near the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the second-largest coral reef in the world!

When planning a trip to Belize, visitors are always encouraged to go Experience Caye Caulker!

Leela Vernon was one of the most iconic Belizean musicians! She told cultural stories in a manner that entertained, educated and preserved the Belizean Creole culture.

We especially remember her during this time of the year when Kriol Christmas Bram are being planned, with her music surely being a central feature.

This documentary is the most intimate recounting of Leela's colorful life and career.
