The article provides information on Free Timisoara Television (FTT) which provides Romanians with several hours of television programs, including Yugoslav and Hungarian broadcasts. FTT started with Imre Gnandt, an electronics engineer who enlisted a few volunteers consisting of friends and acquaintances to help out with television production or news by lending their equipment, pencils and papers. This paved the way for more volunteers wanting to help. There are still certain concerns that Gnandt is faced with, such as being granted an official license to operate an independent station, and receiving help from abroad in the training of equipment and journalistic techniques.
