World Television, the international visual communications company, today

flotation of a UK cable company on Nasdaq in 1994.

Steve Garvey, Chief Executive Officer of World Television commented:
"I would like to thank Stuart for his contribution during his time with World
Television and I wish him every success with his future career. He has played a
vital role in guiding us through the successful merger and integration of World
Television and Virtue.

"I am also delighted to announce the appointment of Evelyn as the Group's new
Chief Financial Officer. She has a wealth of experience working in the media
