BBC World Service announced that it has increased its shortwave English-language radio broadcasts to Thailand.
With authorities in the country taking key national and  international channels off air, the BBC World Service says it will continue the delivery of its independent news and analysis to audiences there. 
Effective 1 a.m. GMT on Monday 26 May, the broadcaster expanded its  availability via shortwave to the Southeast Asian country by adding 10 hours of  broadcasts to its daily shortwave schedule. These include 1 to 3 a.m. GMT on  11600 kHz; 3 to 5 a.m. GMT on 7370 kHz; and 5 to 11 a.m. GMT on 11700 kHz. The  new transmissions add to BBC World Service’s six hours of shortwave broadcasts  at peak times for Thailand.
“In times of national crisis, there is an  acute need for accurate, trusted and impartial news,” said Acting Director, BBC  World Service Group, Liliane Landor. “This is why, with our international TV news channel off the air in Thailand, we have increased BBC World Service radio  broadcasts in the country.”
