Bermuda Cablevision settlement talks begin

    American businessman Bill McDonald, who lost a crucial Privy Council hearing in October in his battle for control of Bermuda Cablevision, has been in Bermuda over the last few weeks to negotiate a settlement with his chief adversary, Bermuda Telephone Company. Sources said that an end to the long-running saga over Cablevision's ownership is in sight and that a listing of the highly profitable company's shares on the Bermuda Stock Exchange will quickly follow a settlement.
