BBC begins in Kingdom

Radio listeners in Phnom Penh can now tune to the BBC's World Service without the

static of shortwave. The 24 hour service, which broadcasts on 100 MHz, features world

news on the hour, business news, music, feature programming and special programs

teaching English.

From Monday to Friday at 10:30 pm, the BBC will broadcast 15 minute English lessons,

followed by a quarter hour of news for non-native English speakers.

A BBC representative said the Corporation had decided to set up a Cambodian relay

transmitter because of reception difficulties on its short wave service. She said,

however, the BBC would not base a news correspondent here, but would cover Cambodia

through Thailand.
