4. First Live TV Talk show by Horizon Lanka kids in 2003

Vodpod videos no longer available.

TMG Chandrasekara, the announcer.

Let’s call Ruvini next. In the meantime, Wanni, tell me how you go to the next stage.

Here you see the second version of the Horizon website. This was last year …

I have a question here. You remember I said at the beginning that the village does not even a telephone. Someone I am sure will wonder how you got connected to the Internet.

Wanni
That is also another interesting story. We do not have a telephone even today — 40 kilometres from Anuradhapura. Sri Lanka is a small country, but we still do not have a telephone network for the entire country. This is a major drawback. So what we have to do is after the children design the webpages, I have to travel 40 kilometres, that is 80 kilometres up and down, to Anuradhapura city. Here we spend a large amount of money and upload the webpages to the Internet.

TMG
So, what you are saying is that you bring the computer to Anuradhapura, then get a telephone connection and do this work.

Wanni
Certainly, and this has become a very expensive way of doing it. If you look at our monthly expenses, the biggest chunk goes for paying telephone bills.
