Added to our BHT-programming-on-the-Net today are :
1) "Intervju : Ministar unutrasnjih polova FBIH, Avdo Hebib"
2) "Mali Slager"
song 1 : Zuta Gora
The files will remain on line for a week, so you could download them at a pace of one a day, if your kids are willing to wait that long :-))
The music files are the first BHT-programs to be located on our server in the USA. We would like feedback concerning download times : When e-mailing us, please state name of file, date and time of download, your modem speed, the country where you downloaded from and the time it took to download. Thank you very much for your help to optimize our service.
We would like to thank you all for your messages of encouragement and requests. Last night alone we received over 20 ! We shall try to answer them all, but it may take a few days. Please bear with us : Getting programs out on the WEB is our priority. All in all just the audio files require 8 hours of work every day before you can click on them, and there's only four of us doing the work...
Please keep sending your wish lists, though, they enable us to gear the service to your preferences. This weekend we shall try to get the BHT program schedules on line on a "BHT Programming Page". Check our 'New(s)-page' please.
As stated earlier, following 'popular demand' we shall refresh the BHT
Dnevnik and HRT's 19:00 Dnevnik today and tomorrow (normally there are no
updates during weekends, as the rest of the site requires a lot of
maintenance as well)
1) "Intervju sa Clanom Predsjednistva RBiH i Potpredsjednikom Federacija BiH Prof. Dr Ejupum Ganicem"
Interview with the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina's President and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina's Acting President Prof Dr Ejup Ganic, as broadcast last night - 24-02-1996 at 22:30 Sarajevo Time. Real-Audio format, 59 minutes playing time.
As stated earlier, following 'popular demand' we shall refresh the BHT Dnevnik and HRT's 19:00 Dnevnik today (normally there are no updates during weekends, as the rest of the site requires a lot of maintenance as well)
This weekend's service by courtesy of Ahmed and Mirenko.
At URL http://www.xs4all.nl/~frankti/bht_prog.html we have published a 'skeleton' BHT programming schedule; we are working with BHT and the BiH Embassy in Brussels to get more accurate and up-to-date details on line.
On Wednesday February 28 we shall only be able to refresh BHT's Dnevnik, no other news files on this date - sorry. On 28-02 the news may also be on line a couple of hours later than normal.
The daily news from BHT can be found at http://www.xs4all.nl/~frankti/tv.htmlIf you would like to actually see the BHT programs, please send an empty VHS video cassette in re-usable wrapping/packaging with a label with the return adress on it to the adress below, and we'll return it to you with BHT recorded on it (For the time being return-postage is on us). Currently we can only handle PAL-system video.
The adress to send your empty cassette to is:
1104 KH Amsterdam-zuidoost
If your're interested in audio-cassettes with BHT programming on it please follow the same procedure in sending us (a) blank cassette(s), stating what format you want us to use on the cassette's label (Dolby B, Dolby C, Dolby S, no noise reduction)
Under this scheme we can also handle open reel tapes up to 27 cms, at 9.5, 19 and 38 cms/sec, 2/4-4/4
PS If you are not yet listed on our "E-mail-adresses of people from Bosnia"-page, please have a look at http://www.xs4all.nl/~frankti/bosnmail.html and send us an e-mail to be included in the directory. As the page grows, it is getting busier and busier : we know that a number of contacts between people have been established via this page since it went on line two weeks ago.
