BBC World Service Funded by Licence Fee

Listen in pop-out player

As funding for the World Service switches from the UK government to the BBC’s licence fee payers, Peter Horrocks, director Global News takes questions from listeners about the implications of the changes. He speaks to a listener in America about the way that a limited amount of advertising will be taken on some World Service services, outside of the UK. And he responds to UK listener’s concerns about the presentational style of Newsday which she feels is sending a mixed message about quality of the World Service.
