History
Somali Elders visit the BBC Somali Service in 1959
The BBC Somali Service began on the 18th of July 1957 with two weekly broadcasts of 15 minutes each. By September 1958 the 15 minutes programmes were made daily.

Initially a daily news bulletin was broadcast in the morning followed by a commentary in the afternoon. From 1st July, 1961 (the first anniversary of independence of the Somali Republic) the two components were joined together and the programme time was increased from 15 to 30 minutes (1430-1500 GMT) (17:30 - 18:00 local time). And on 25th March,2000 a big change was made into our programmes. On Saturdays-Wednesdays we are on air for 45 Minutes, Thursdays and Fridays we are on air for an hour, evening Transmission are the same. This proved to be a very popular listening time in the Horn of Africa and other adjacent regions where the largest majority of the Somali Service audience lives.

Dadka Soomaaliyeed ay ku nool yihiin.
