Holland has a new public broadcaster, that is deliberately keeping away from the political infighting happening in Hilversum at the moment. The new broadcasting company has recently changed its name to LLink and operates from one of the top floors of a former electricity generating station in Rotterdam. It describes itself as the smallest station with the largest ideals.
The venture on Lloydstraat is impressive. Great team spirit too...although somewhat nervous as sites are launched and their programmes start to get on the air. (2 hour a week on TV, 9 hours a week on the radio). 60,000 people have so far signed up as a member.
