Newest Review: ... amount of reporting was amazing. This is not unusual, though. I tend to watch the World News on BBC and then turn to my local network for the news in my state. The World News definitely gives me better coverage on news outside of the US. The other networks only tend to cover stories that have some tie to the US, where the BBC gives me news from all over. On BBC I learned about the events at Holy Cross School in Belfast - which received no coverage on my local station whatsoever. I have nothing but praise for the Beeb with regard to their coverage of world-wide news. They provide concise information, which appears to be unbiased, so that we... more

Never more so than in the last few days, BBC America has excelled itself with the coverage of the recent tragic events in New York City, Washington DC and Pennsylvania. From the beginning, it gave up-to-the-moment information as it became available, and was as complete as local US coverage. Since then, it has continued to update us on the situation, on the rescue efforts, on the people stories behind the headlines. The sheer amount of reporting was amazing. This is not unusual, though. I tend to watch the World News on BBC and then turn to my local network for the news in my state. The World News definitely gives me better coverage on news outside of the US. The ...

It has been many years since John Reith first established the values of the BBC. The BBC World channel is perhaps one of only few BBC channels which still upholds the tradtional Reithian values. What is on it: The channel aims to provide impartial and informative news coverage on events on around the world. I would say that is unrivalled in terms of quality and agenda and always manages to capture stories from the most appropriate angle. Bias: It is the BBC's aim to deliver the news packages without a bias, I feel this value is upheld and there is no leaning to any political party or favouritism ... Read the complete review

In my opinion this station is great it offers good, accurate news whever you are in the world. The specicific news programs on this channel are also great i.e. world business report, Hard talk etc. What makes this channel particularly good however is that it can be streamed through their internet site to everywhere in the world. Its use of good well trained reporters that do not make mistakes when reading the reports makes a good change from CNN where the reporters regularly mess up when reading the news. A good accurate news program offering inpartial news wereever you are in the world. Highly recommended. ... Read the complete review

What is the BBC world service all about. I travel to many parts of the world as part of my job, (not glamorous like Judith Chalmers etc.) I would love to be able to hear of news/events at home occasionally. Wherever I happen to be I can usually receive the BBC world service, either by radio (short wave long distance or locally). Or nowadays by TV. For reasons I cannot fathom, the BBC is obsessed with all things Asia, i.e. business reports, markets or any matters. This Asian content seems to dominate if I am on the opposite side of the globe from there. I could say the news repeats itself to much, but bearing in mind time differences across the globe I can ...
