December is a time for peace, love and prosperity apart from the surge in economy due to the fact that it has been coined as a season for gift buying whilst tunes in accordance to Christmas are blaring within every department store. Nevertheless, at the end of the evening marks a time of relaxation, pleasure and a hot cut of tea preferably lying down on a bed or a sofa and wrapped up in a blanket. Television offers the warmth that one would enjoy pleasantly and on a Wednesday evening, Television Malta has the perfect programme; D.R.E.A.M.S, the weekly musical drama series which has captured the hearts of the younger demographic because it represents elements of real life, somewhat at a point where one doesn't realise that this is actually happening on television.
Another week has passed and it has been quite an intriguing week noting that the focus continues on the semi-finalists of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest but nevertheless, the issue at hand, this evenings' episode of D.R.E.A.M.S will be focusing a lot on the storyline of Patsy May (Analise Mifsud) in order for the viewers to realise what happened in the past couple of months within her respective life due to the breakup with Maria Sultana (Marie-Clare Sammut) who was still not confident enough of her sexuality to pursue anything too serious and in the eyes of her schoolmates. Nevertheless, Tiffany (Kristen Camilleri) is facing some issues of her own at home noting that she catches her father, Richard (Michael Mock) going out in a sneaky manner and thus wonders whether he has a plan. On the other hand, the focus of the story will be alternating this evening considering that Jasmine (Rachael Tedesco Triccas) will have more problems to deal with but not with her illness, something else which is as detrimental in her persona life. The brand new President of the School Council, Alex (Luke Brincat) takes on his role and prepares a surprise for Jade (Rachel Genovese) but will it be a negative or a positive one?

Patience has indeed been the virtue of many individuals in the past couple of months especially due to the fact that despite the summer months bring about peace, relaxation and frivolous moments, it is known to be a deadpan when it comes to television with most of the notable prime-time series slots that are aired during the autumn and winter months going into hiatus as more filming is completed prior to a return. This has been the case with the popular musical drama series known as D.R.E.A.M.S which has been worked upon by Rewind Productions having a script written by Evelyn Saliba La Rosa and Michael Vella Haber who also pen the lyrics to the original songs which are composed by Maestro Ray Agius and aired weekly as per the requisites of the episode. Another week has gone by and the fans of the series unfortunately had to wait slightly longer for the ninth episode as current affairs took over the national broadcaster but nevertheless, make sure to tune in this evening at 20:40 CET because it has been well worth the wait.
In the previous episode, the focus seemed to be on the election which was hotly contested by a series of candidates including Jade Vella Petroni (Rachel Genovese), Chloe Stafrace (Michela Dalli), Philip Roger Triganza III (Damian Buhagiar), and Lenny (Daniel Testa) but there was a surprise winner, someone completely unexpected in the form of Alex (Luke Brincat) who seems to have made far more enemies than friends by virtue of winning the election. There is something fishy about him that does not really bode well and it will be known in time. Nevertheless, the focus quickly turns to the several storylines in this episode with Hilda (Evelyn Saliba La Rosa) visited by Sally (Nicole Azzopardi), her daughter with a friend, someone completely unexpected, but who? Will she ultimately send them away or will she accept their visit as a means of reconciliation? In the meantime, Emma (Kayleigh Cassar) seems to be having some issues, thinking that her imaginary friend might have returned. She decides on her own will to visit Stephanie (Chelsea Refalo) for a favour, or a heart to heart chat. The problems between Robert (Andre Penza) and Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) continue to grow and it seems that there are heading for disaster. Tune into Television Malta this evening for yet another episode of intrigue of D.R.E.A.M.S where the story keeps on getting deeper.

During the summer months, there had been a growing sense of impatience between fans of the series who have once more become inclined to know the latest about every particular character with many even asking what happened to others who might have not been seen in recent weeks but in actuality, things unfold at a relatively normal pace had it been everyday life and that is why patience becomes an extremely important virtue. Writing becomes part of a person rather than a daily chore and this is surely the case when it comes to the individuals behind the weekly music drama series, with Evelyn Saliba La Rosa and Michael Vella Haber working in unison to create something which teenagers could ultimately relate to within their daily lives. It is imperative that television is seen as a means of how to get particular messages across and being shown on the national television station is definitely a positive. Rewind Productions will be hosting their eight episode of the second season of the music drama D.R.E.A.M.S this evening on Television Malta just after the eight o'clock news.
It has been noted that the present could easily be a reflection of the present and this is surely the case within the storyline that involves the supposed love triangle that involves Robert (Andre Penza), Sue (Ruth Sammut Casingena), Cynthia (Stephanie Attard Vella), Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) and Edward (Manuel Cutajar). It seems that Sue is in some manner trying to rekindle her emotions towards Robert who confronts her and tries to have a conversation with her with the details somewhat mysterious but just as this was set to go further, they are easily interrupted by Cynthia who stops by for a surprise visit. Back to the sixth form, it seems that things are heating up on several levels, the first with Saidah (Drizilla Bakoush) and Keith (Leander John Schembri) who have now officially went out on a date and have learned several things but ultimately, were her friends right about him and how will his character evolve within the general storyline? That is yet to be scene but focus in this episode will be on the day of the election with Chloe (Michela Dalli) and Jade (Rachel Genovese) going head to head against each other. There is clear rivalry going on between them but will one of them win or will there be yet another upset? Another point of attention is in prison with the inmates faces some issues and with somebody somewhat getting hurt. In fact, the focus will is none other than Frances (Sabina Attard) whose former history will be revealed this evening. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com and watch Television Malta at 20:40 CET this evening for another thrilling episode of D.R.E.A.M.S.

For the second time in a row, Malta will not participate in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. This was announced officially on esckaz.com. On July 16 2011, Malta decided to withdraw from the ninth edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, being the first withdraw for Malta making the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011 to be the first one without a song sung in English since Malta's songs were the only songs in the language after the United Kingdom withdrew in 2006.
Malta has entered the Junior Eurovision Song Contest eight times since debuting at the first contest in 2003. Entrants for the Contest are selected in the Junior Song For Europe contest, organised by the Maltese broadcaster PBS. Malta's best placing in the contest was in 2008, when Daniel Testa came 4th with Junior Swing. The country's worst placing was in 2005, when Thea & Friends came 16th and last in the contest with Make It Right. We were last represented in 2010 by Nicole Azzopardi and the song Knock Knock .. Boom Boom! The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2012 will be the tenth edition of the contest, and will take place at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam, Netherlands on 1 December 2012. Dutch broadcaster AVRO will be the host broadcaster for the event. For the second time the Netherlands will play host to the contest. This is the first time in the history of the contest that a country will have hosted twice, with the last time being in 2007, when the contest was held in the city of Rotterdam.The show will be hosted by Ewout Genemans and Kim-Lian van der Meij.
Seven countries have so far confirmed their participation in the contest; Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Giorgia, Netherlands, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine. Italy and San Marino might participate for the very first time, whilst Spain and Serbia may return. On the other hand, we might have one withdrawal; Moldova. Withdrawing from this festival, surely gave the ‘big’ Eurovision a boost, since funds weren’t divided from the PBS noting that the results have also improved with the artist for the 'big' Eurovision receiving more exposure and promotion. On the otherhand, young talents are limited to their ‘overseas’ experiences, since it was surely a good stepping stone for international experience, and most of the Maltese past participants have signed overseas contracts and had loads of international exposure. Perhaps, in the near future, we will return … perhaps.
