Jamming World Service in Asia

Duration:
10 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 23 March 2013

Over To You explores the way that the World Service's shortwave transmissions are being affected by jamming in parts of Asia, following up from an email from a listener in West Bengal who was having problems listening to the service. With the help of the World Service's head of business development, we find out how jamming of the World Service shortwave transmissions inside China is spilling over into neighbouring countries, and explore what the BBC can do to redress the situation through international organisations.
