Historical Post from 2014:

Trek 2000 Corporation has recently invested in the formation of Big Centre TV, in Birmingham England, along with their good friend and long time business partner Mike Prince and two other investors. 

As part of the investment, Gordon Haddock has become a director.  Maureen and Gord Haddock, along with Rob Wurzer, who is their good friend and business partner in TVTruck, were delighted to visit Big Centre in September of 2015. 

Mike Prince and the team at Big Centre TV have the capability to produce programmes which will not only be interesting to the people of the West Midlands but to English speaking countries across the globe. Maureen is delighted that Big Centre TV is located in the same building as a media school. It is natural that a symbiotic working relationship will ensue. 

TVTruck, here in Saskatoon, SK, will offer creative support when it is fitting, and partner Rob Wurzer brings a wide range of experience and talents to the Canadian mix. 

Maureen was interviewed by Monica Price of Cuppa TV in September 2015 while visiting Birmingham, and it is hoped that Monica will visit TVTruck to do some Canadian content interviews in the new year. Maureen refers those who show interest in Get a Bigger Wagon to this interview, regularly. Monica covered an amazing amount of content in a brief time!
