PGTV launches on the Internet

PHUKET: Programming from PGTV, the Phuket Gazette‘s new TV production unit, can now be watched online at thethaiger.com/tv, or by clicking on the “TV-Phuket” link above.

Ten minutes of news and 10 minutes of documentaries or interviews are now uploaded to the site every day, Monday to Friday, at 10 am from the PGTV studios.

The program consists of Phuket news, followed by the weather, and then This Is Phuket, the documentary or interview segment focusing, again, on the local community.

To watch the online show, viewers will need an ADSL or faster connection and the Internet Explorer browser.

In addition to the online service, programming can also be seen on Phuket provincial cable channels and in the guest rooms of a rapidly building number of four- and five-star hotels.

Today’s online documentary, Return to Paradise, is the first of a four-part special on the tsunami aftermath by Australian filmmaker Michelle McRae. It contains on-the-scene footage, with sound, of the waves as they smashed into Patong.

PGTV was launched in January this year as part of the Gazette‘s expansion into a range of new media to complement the company’s weekly newspaper, the Web’s search engine leading Gazette Online, and the island’s Gazette Guide telephone phone book.
