One Response to BBC World Service Documentary: “Hang On, I’ll Just Speak to the World”

    Thank you – what a great look at the BBC World service. Fantastic viewing and the documentary brought back memories of my fortunate visits to Bush House. In the same era that this documentary was made I worked in Asia and the Middle East and the BBC World Service was daily listening for me. Often I would be out of contact with my office in Seattle and home in Australia for weeks at a time, so the service kept me in touch with the rest of the world.
