VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

SUNDAY MARK'S THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE GROUNDING OF THE COSTA CONCORDIA OFF THE COAST OF TUSCANY -- AND THE CRUISE SHIP IS STILL ON IT'S SIDE AS IT HAS BEEN SINCE IT RAN AGROUND OFF ITALY'S GIGLIO (JEEL'-yoh)

ISLAND.

OFFICIALS ARE LOOKING AT SEPTEMBER AS THE LIKELY DATE FOR REMOVAL -- PARTLY DUE TO CONCERN OVER TOXIC MATERIALS INSIDE THE SHIP LEAKING INTO THE REGION'S PRISTINE WATERS .

SOUNDBITE: (English) Nick Sloane, Titan-Micoperi salvage master:

"If we go six months from now it is June, we should be ready to roll her upright and then we expect to lose about 20 days' weather, 20 or 30 days' weather, so that impacts on that schedule.

32 PEOPLE DIED IN THE DISASTER -- AND THE SHIP'S CAPTAIN REMAINS ACCUSED OF MULTIPLE MANSLAUGHTER.

KEVIN REBELLO BECAME A PART OF THE ISLAND'S EXTENDED COMMUNITY WHILE STAYING ON THE ISLAND FOR MONTHS -- WAITING FOR HIS BROTHER'S BODY TO BE RECOVERED.

BUT HE'S STILL MISSING.

SOUNDBITE (English) Kevin Rebello, brother of waiter (still missing) working on Costa Concordia:

"Well, the search has been stopped many months ago. We are just trying to continue with the recovery of the ship and once that's done, I know once it's over, they might find him under the ship."

SUNDAY -- A DAYLONG COMMEMORATION TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY WILL BE HELD ON THE ISLAND.

RELATIVES OF THE VICTIMS WILL BE THERE, AND SO WILL SURVIVORS.

"JUST SEEING THIS BOAT HAS A STRONG EFFECT ON ME, SAYS ALBERT (AL-BEAR) KARIANIS -- WHO WAS ABOARD THE SHIP LAST JANUARY.

"I THINK ABOUT IT EVERYDAY, AND I HAVE NIGHTMARES", HE SAYS.

SOON AFTER THE DISASTER, THE COMPANY MADE PASSENGERS A SETTLEMENT OFFER OF 11 THOUSAND EUROS PER PERSON.

MANY TOOK IT, BUT KARIANIS AND HIS WIFE DID NOT.

"IT MEANT THAT OUR LIVES WERE ONLY WORTH 11-THOUSAND EUROS, SHE SAYS.

WE ARE STILL FACING PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS, SO WE REJECTED IT, SHE SAYS.
