Where's Bahrain in the news?
The coverage of the Arab Spring has dominated the news agenda for recent months, but some listeners think that one country - Bahrain - has been missed off that agenda.
"There's very little coverage of events in Bahrain," commented one listener, and from Bahrain came the suggestion that there is some form of censorship of Bahrain's news, comparing the coverage of Syria in US and western media with that of coverage of Bahrain.
So I asked Steve Metcalfe, a media analyst at BBC Monitoring, how much international coverage there has been of the situation in Bahrain.
He pointed out that the major Arabic channels find it a sensitive issue to deal with, as the major channel Al Jazeera is based in Qatar, a neighbouring country.
He noted that it is also complicated because one source that has been giving coverage is Iranian media.
In terms of media in Bahrain, Steve explained that there is one local channel, which is state run, and half a dozen newspapers, of which one used to be in support of the opposition, so for mainstream media the picture that is given is very one-sided inside Bahrain.
Away from the Arab Spring, next week sees the final of the football Champions League at Wembley - the World Service will be covering it and I asked Sportsworld's commentator on the match, Richard Connolly, how the World Service is limbering up for the match of the year.
It's by no means the biggest final he has reported on as he covered the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008 and he believes it will be the most watched and listened to sporting event of this year.
He compared the quality of the club teams with that of the national teams in the World Cup and suggests that the Champions League final is the pinnacle of the game - "this is as good as it gets', he suggested.
I hope that whet's your appetite for the game, and we'd like to hear your comments and reactions to this and anything else you hear on the World Service, as usual.
