The board of the European Broadcasting Union, of which the head of Swedish Radio is a member, is helping Greek journalists get news out to their countrymen, despite the Greek government's sudden move this week to shut down the Hellenic Broadcasting Company, ERT.

Cilla Benkö, director general of Swedish Radio, said in a press release, "The EBU is now working on two fronts. The first is to influence the government to start broadcasting again, the other is to assist with a restructuring of public service in Greece, if the Greek government so wishes."

EBU engineers found a way to retransmit ERT's signal through EBU's ground station in Athens, according to a press release issued by the EBU, which means that since Thursday afternoon, Greek satellite subscribers have been able to watch ERT's news program, NET, despite the government's decision.
