Milan Kovacevic was one of the journalists legend of Television Belgrade. He was born on January 23, 1915 in Kotor Varos. Before World War II he successfully dealt with athletics, and after the war he edited a variety of newsletters dedicated to this sport, and in the period from 1952 to 1958 he was editor of the Belgrade newspaper "Sport".

The highest altitude reached on television when he left the sport journalism and began to create (to date unsurpassed) series including "Caravan" and "The camera through the world."

Branko Copic after the war settled in Belgrade, and from 1951 he became a professional writer. He wrote the "national language", whose beauty, grandeur and lightness come to the fore in most of his works. By the end of his life he published about 150 titles, and is rightly considered among the most prolific and widely read writers of the late 20th century in the former Yugoslavia. Copic is for many people today the best children's writer, was born on the territory of the former common homeland.

Political persecution, which was exhibited almost the entire post-war period, most likely influenced the Copic`s decision to end life by jumping from the Branko's Bridge in Belgrade, on 26 March 1984.
