Parliament wins CBU award

This country's Parliament has won the award for best television documentary at the 2016 Caribbean Broadcasting Union's (CBU) Awards.

The 2016 CBU Awards ceremony took place at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in Nassau in the Bahamas, recently. In a release, the Parliament said the award it received was for the documentary, "The Vote at 70."

This documentary looked at how TT and the Caribbean came to adopt voting rights for all citizens in 1946, regardless of age, income or property qualifications. Last year, the Parliament won the award for best documentary-television with, “The West Indies at War.”

Parliament also won the award last year for responsible coverage of children's issues with “I Count.”
