Belgrade calling...

"Belgrade's Radio Warriors" was shown some time ago on the Storyville strand on BBC4. It was about the B-92 radio station which voiced opposition to Slobodan Milosevic. At times it was banned from carrying news and forced to operate underground as Radio B2-92.

There was one nugget hidden away, buried in text displayed on the screen: in June 2000, BBC World offered them space on their satellite. As one person involved said, after this "everything changed": the broadcasts could now be heard in Serbia's provinces.
