On the Day of Saint Unmercenary Healers Cosmas and Damian, 1st (14th) July of the year of our Lord 2008, on one of the four most watched televisions in Serbia, an interesting reportage for the work of The Centre for Research of Orthodox Monarchism was broadcasted.
Namely, the Belgrade television station Fox has broadcasted twice on their main news (at 11.45 & 19.00) a reportage made by esteemed Mr Vladimir Bobetich, with a masterful introduction by presenter Mrs Zvezdana Jovanovich-Popovich (watch).
In the said reportage, Reverend Father Deacon Nenad M. Jovanovich, in the capacity of the Chairman of our Board for Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, spoke about modern Serbian personal (or family) heraldry, as well as about certain anomalies therewith.
A lengthy reportage was lively put together and illustrated with some of our Arms, made for the Serbian Armigers (Messrs Dikich, Mrdjenovich, Miss Jerinich etc.), and also with representative examples of monumental heraldry on Belgrade buildings (Patriarchate Court, Physical Faculty of the University of Belgrade, monument to Prince Michael Obrenovich III, etc), often passed by unnoticed.
By the way, Fox Television is one of the five television stations in Serbia to have received a national frequency permit by the Republic Broadcasting Agency in 2006, which is of special interest to us.
Namely, there is none or next to none talk in our electronic media on heraldry (especially professionally or competently), and this was the way for a few credible words to reach every corner of Serbia...
