This Sunday, May 13, 2012, my interview with Mr. A. O. Shirley, MBE airs on CBN Ch 51 at 8:00p.m and rebroadcast on Wednesday also at 8:00p.m and on Saturday at 8:00a.m. This is a very interesting conversation as Mr. Shirley gives an insight into his early years in government and his life in the Virgin Islands where he has lived all of his life.

Then & Now, historical facts

The official name of the “BVI” is the “Virgin Islands.” The United States of America bought the Danish West Indies, which were St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix etc., in 1917 and because of the close proximity to the “Virgin Islands” these became known as the “United States Virgin Islands.” The “Virgin Islands” are a territory of the United Kingdom – people began to refer to them as the British Virgin Islands (BVI) for ease of differentiation. THEN & NOW will use the official name of the BVI in all its communications – “VIRGIN ISLANDS”
