As a doctor working in Southern Africa I rely on the World Service for news and would be really at a loss if it was ever stopped. It is my main source of news and I also keep up with developments in science and medicine through it's many varied and interesting programmes. I owe my knowledge of the English language to the English by Radio courses I listened to in the 1980s.
The BBC World Service is a great source for good around the world. It is one of England's best exports. Thank you Bishop Sentamu for defending it. Thank you ICN for keeping us informed also.
