Do you agree with BBC World Service cuts?
The BBC World Service is to close five of its 32 language services, in a bid to save £46m a year.
The Macedonian, Albanian, Serbian, English for the Caribbean and Portuguese for Africa services are all to be axed with 650 jobs expected to be lost from a workforce of some 2,400.
The BBC said it had to make savings after its government support was cut, but unions called the move "ferocious".
Is the BBC right to axe these language services? Are you a listener? Are the cuts aimed in the necessary places?
