a riveting program for New Years

Umm, is Beeb TV available via satellite in the states?

LONDON (Variety) - How's this for a riveting climax to a marathon of
millennium TV? Live coverage from Easter Island of seven virgins
entering a cave with a single naked man and later emerging ``married.''

The interim logistics evidently still are being worked out.

This is but one of many initiatives unveiled by representatives from 60 
international broadcasters assembled in London to organize the BBC's 
year-end, 28-hour TV extravaganza, ``2000 Today.'' Easter Island, one of the 
remotest places on Earth, is administered by Chile.

The epic broadcast will kick off at 9:30 a.m. GMT Dec. 31 on the South 
Pacific island of Kiribati. The BBC's world affairs editor, John
Simpson, will be on hand to report.
