Jeux Sans Frontieres

No, not the horrendously stupid 70s TV game once so bizarrely popular in Britain (or the Peter Gabriel single, come to that) just a nifty headline to introduce the wonders of ShoutCast TV.

I use VideoLan as a media view sometimes, and idly looked to see this evening what was on on the big bad internet and found this stream which is of course DPRK Television (North Korea Central Television) where you can watch North Koreans bewailing the death of the (late) Great Leader (see left) or extolling the virtues of music to the accompaniment of "subtitles" saying just how good life is - and getting better all the time - in North Korea.

Check it out... Korea_Is_One.nsv.nsv was a bit dull, but who knows what may be on next!

Most of the video is a bit blobby, but I guess every North Korean is doing their bit by contributing 1bit of bandwidth, so let's not be judgemental, eh?
