I agree with Soca Professor.
It may be a relatively small issue , but it is important to insure historical accuracy in our reporting of these events, which may be seen as factual in the future.

I am not aware of the term "panorama " being used in reference to any steelband competition anywhere prior to 1963 when the " National Association of Trinidad and Tobago Steelbandmen" held their first competition using that name in San Fernando ( the Southern region Panorama competition ) in 1963.
Obviously , there were also other steelband competitions held in T&T and elsewhere prior to 1963 , but the name "panorama" was never used ,as far as I know ( and I've been around almost as long as there have been steelbands !)
BYW , I should also highlight that NATTS was an association of "steelbandmen" ( players) not an organization of steelbands like its successor Pan Trinbago.

As far as I am aware Antigua did not started to refer to their steelband competition as Panorama until around 1967.

It should be noted that Panorama as a competition was a brand and concept created and developed in Trinidad & Tobago from 1963 where only arrangements of current calypso were allowed into the competition and there was also a process of elimination rounds from the Zonal Preliminaries thru to the National Finals where all the biggest guns meet to decide who were the National Champions.

T&T's Panorama competitions also included at least 8 to 10 top steelbands in the Final from the very first official edition in 1963.

@ linfield martin WST would be very interested in posting the additional information if it was made available.

i'an submitting correction to the following years.

2001 mighty swallow -Pan conversation - ACB bank Harmonites - arranger Lingfield "Kodjo" Martin

2004 Lingfield "kodjo" Martin - Sections of pan -Caribseas Harmonites - arranger - Lingfield "Kodjo" Martin 

I was looking at T&T panorama history and notice for every year the three positions are recorded, i'am wondering with information from me and others we can inform you and get our stats as informative as T&T stats. Thanks in advance.
