Internet Story: 27 Mar 1999
Live from Belgrade Despite having it equipment confiscated by the Serb authorities, Kosovan radio station B92, which broadcasts out of Belgrade, is still managing to broadcast to the world via the Internet. You can see their daily news updates on www.b92.net (the news in English is at the bottom of this page) and hear live radio broadcasts in Real Audio (needs the plugin installed for IE4 or IE5). There's also some Real Video (again plugin required) of selected events. If you feel moved to help out this venture then there's a web site being run from The Netherlands offering information about this.
