In Australia, we nationally broadcast almost every day, radio and TV
programs in Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese and sometimes Korean. These
national programs reach the major Australian cities by the (national
government broadcasting service: "SBS" - Special Broadcasting Service.
My 85 year old father in Darwin has radio programs in both Mandarin and
Cantonese. All the above programs are based on the usual commercial
As once a senior producer in radio broadcasting, I used to have several
minority group radio programs, but broadcasting in English. If I wanted
to, I could start broadcasting next week, in any language for which
there is an audience, in radio, in most cities in Australia. It would
take me a few months to start broadcasting nationally.

broadcasting in Hakka in Australia, since there are few people who
understand the language.
