Southeast Asian Broadcasting: The Emergence of Thailand.
Anatol, Karl W.; Bittner, John R.
The historical development and evolution of broadcasting in Thailand, from its beginning in 1919, is narrated. Governmental control of broadcasting is discussed briefly, and the development of Southeast Asia's first television station, Thai Television Channel 4, is also surveyed. Today, radio broadcasting in Thailand utilizes A.M., F.M., and F.M. stereo multi-plex, and over 150 wavelengths have been allocated to stations broadcasting in eight languages. Television, too, has grown tremendously, and a 1967 survey shows a viewing audience of 2 million with over 250,000 television sets in the country. (JK)
