Sharing Discussing Understanding

Commonwealth Journalists' Association

For years, the BBC World Service has lived with the constant fear that cuts in its government funding would reduce its effectiveness as the world’s most trusted broadcaster.

Its English and other language services have been invaluable to those who live without the freedoms that we take for granted, even if its output has not always been widely appreciated here at home. What will the latest changes mean for its future – a new lease of life, a loss of identity in the wider BBC, or death by a thousand cuts?
