The management of time has to be well setup in order to reflex the skills of any individual and considering the work loads that many currently have to concur with, it does come slightly as a surprise to see that everything is ultimately finished with careful, strategic planning. Another week has passed and Wednesday nights, the middle of the week has been known to become lit up with drama during the evening due to the fact that Television Malta has slotted one of their most popular drama series in the prime time slot, making people more anxious to put up their feet, have a rest and enjoy all of the drama as it unfolds on their screens. D.R.E.A.M.S began as a pilot project last year featuring a stellar cast made up of true performers as most of them have the element of being a triple threat meaning that they could act, sing and dance but nevertheless, the emergence of talent has always been exhibited in the script written by Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba La Rosa with original songs airing each week composed by Ray Agius.
For the past three to four episodes, the focus of the story has surely been on Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) and her husband, Robert (Andre Penza) who seem to be having a lot of underlying issues just about as she made the announcement that they are as a family expecting their first child. Things are marred when they receive photos of Gloria kissing Edward (Manuel Cutajar). Unfortunately, the situation has been getting rather worse but now that Robert has confronted Gloria, will things change back to the way they were? Moving on, another intriguing concept that has been quickly developing is the story between Flavia and Finnigan (Evelyn Saliba La Rosa) who had a falling out because the latter believe that the former was sleeping with her husband, Henry (Stephan Saliba) but in reality, he was actually sleeping with Frank (PJ Xerxen) who just happens to be Flavia's husband giving rise to a seriously complicated matter of sexuality. Student life continues with new character Saidah (Drizilla Bakoush) planning to go out on a date with Keith (Leander John Schembri). It is iimportant to note that Jasmine seemed very tired in the last episode but will she continue to push herself into achieving success for Jade Vella Petroni (Rachel Genovese) with aid being given by several people including Katia (Jade Cini), Jeremy (Mikhail Attard), Karen (Lara Dimech), Brandon (Jean Pierre Cassar) and Antoinette (Analise Psaila) amongst others. One last note is that someone will celebrate their birthday, but who? Stay tuned to Television Malta and catch the latest episode this evening at 20:40 CET on Television Malta.

Fall has become one of the most intriguing elements in between seasons and this is due to the fact that the younger demographic is known to return to school whilst at the same time that the media is picking itself up and creating a brand new schedule for itself. Many people during the week, find it somewhat difficult to adapt to their routines and therefore, there is nothing better than a little bit of a rest mid-week to ensure that final dose of energy that will keep the individual on the go prior to the weekend where relaxation should then ultimately take centre stage. The hit musical drama series entitled D.R.E.A.M.S plays a pivotal role in the current television schedule noting that the script written by Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba La Rosa is as real as can be and tries to analyse the lives of upcoming individuals within the world itself. In the past two weeks, characters from the first season were given continuation whilst brand new individuals were introduced and a slight story to begin their journey. All of the songs in series are composed by Maestro Ray Agius to the lyrics of the scriptwriters which have proven to be very popular.
The shot taken above is from the second episode as Jade Vella Petroni (Rachel Genovese) got into a little bit of a tussle in class with Carlo Francolanza (Joe Tanti) who becomes the new English lecturer following the promotion of Robert Soler (Andre Penza) to headmaster of the sixth form. The epitome of the third episode seems to be related towards the latter character mentioned actually especially now that problems seem to be brewing up in the Soler household now that the pictures which had been deliberately taken have officially come out in the open where they could play harm on the relationship between Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) and Robert. It seems that relationships will be the ones encountering problems in this episode because it seems that the love between Brandon Cutajar (Jean Pierre Cassar) and Antoinette Balzan (Analise Psaila) is somewhat fading into jealousy because of a former flame, Tiffany (Kristen Camilleri). It seems that Tiffany is just trying to be a good friend and thus tries to convince Antoinette this but will she succeed in doing so? The final element to be analysed even further is the upcoming school election noting the competition between Jade Vella Petroni and Chloe Stafrace (Michela Dalli). Will one be able to come out ahead of the other in the long run or will there be surprises in store? Stay tuned for this evenings' episode of D.R.E.A.M.S on Television Malta as from 20:40 CET onwards.

The Public Broadcasting Services is currently preparing the team which they will be sending to Baku, Azerbaijan for the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest where Kurt Calleja and his song This Is The Night are set to take to the stage during the second semi-final amongst a flurry of nations who seem to have their participation favoured by the critics including Sweden and Serbia amongst others. It is mostly known that the team in itself will include the main performer, the band, the backing vocal, the Head of Delegation being Anton Attard, the Assistant Head of Delegation normally Anna Dalli and then the Head of Press Daniel D'Anastasi. One member who is definitely not going to Azerbaijan according to exclusive sources is the commentator who this year will be none other than Elaine Saliba.
Looking back through the years, Elaine Saliba started through the means of production with Where's Everybody before moving onto acting, landing a leading role on a television series that aired on Television Malta entitled Għada Jisbaħ Wkoll (Tomorrow Dawns As Well) but from then onwards, she grew in confidence, strength and experience going onto present and host the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza last year alongside veteran Charles Saliba aired on NET Television and then also taking up a programme entitled Kwiżż (Quiz) on the same station. Following her successful stint, she was asked by the Public Broadcasting Services to host the Malta Eurovision Song Contest alongside Television Malta presented and former host of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, Ronald Briffa creating controversy in the first night over a choice of outfit but shining in the final in a sleek blue floor length gown. She did a great job and critics were pleased with the outcome of the competition in terms of hosting duties therefore it comes to no surprise that the likes of Antonia Micallef, Eileen Montesin and Valerie Vella have been dismissed owing to various reasons. It seems that Elaine is quickly becoming a golden girl at the Public Broadcasting Services for her talent, charm and beautiful smile. We would like to wish her luck as she commentates during both the semi-final stages and the final from the Public Broadcasting Services Headquarters in Gwardamangia.
Proud-to-be-Malta’s representative in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Kurt Calleja, has lately been touring around Europe promoting his song. On the 25th April was infact his very last day of this tour which took him around most part of Eastern Europe. His last stop was Amsterdam, in Netherlands, where he took part in the event called “Eurovision in Concert” last Sunday, 21st April, where not less than 24 countries promoted their entry. Before returning to Malta on the 26th April, Kurt made a stop in Milan where he will be appearing on a show aired on RAI Due.
During his promotional tour, Kurt met with other Eurovision contenders including Sabina Babayeva who will be representing the host country Azerbaijan, Can Bonomo representing Turkey, Sofi Marinova of Bulgaria, Ivi Adamou of Cyprus, Soluna Samay of Denmark, Donny Montell of Lithuania and Anggun who will be representing France. Kurt Calleja made various appearances in TV shows and performances in nightclubs and also in some National Selections, including Lithuania’s National Selection. Kurt described this promotional tour as “a great adventure” and he surely made a good name for our country, thanks also to his bubbly and super out-going character.
Now, the emphasis of Kurt’s work will surely be on those important 3 minutes on the stage on the 24th May, that is, the second semifinal. Maybe odds will treat us bad once again, but everyone is more than sure that Kurt and his team will do not only their very best, but their utmost to assure a great performance on that night … and hopefully ‘that would be the night’. In an interview done by escflashmalta.com, Kurt said that the performance will be as simple as possible, nearing very much the performance which led him to the victory last February.
