December 4, 1996

December is a special month for Thailand. On the 4th of December every year, more than ten thousand of Thai people from all over the country enter His Majesty the King's Chitralada Villa, Dusit Palace in order to convey their birthday wish to His Majesty. In return, his Majesty greets and talks to the people for more than two hours. The so-called "grand meeting" is televised nationwide, with millions of viewers in Thailand listening to His Majesty's talk.

In order to bring you a live coverage of the event of 1996,the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center, will run a live multicast of the event on the Internet using VDOLive! technology. Our service is limited to 50 VDOLive sessions only. A sound track is also available on our RealAudio server, also with 50 sessions capability. Our service is first-come first-serve.

Schedule: December 5th, 1996
Time: 7:00-9:00 (Thailand)
or 00:00-02:00 GMT.
