What happens to a nation when they have no money left, they cut services and that refers to every service available? The news on Tuesday was that Greece would be stopping all services of the publicly funded broadcasters ERT in a bid to save money. ERT, which began broadcasting in 1938, is funded by a direct payment of 4.30 euros (£3.80; $6) added monthly to electricity bills.

It ran three domestic TV channels, four national radio stations, as well regional radio stations and an external service: Voice of Greece.
