Richard Cuff shares this information regarding the BBC World Service:
An article in the Daily Telegraph reflecting on the BBC’s recently-released audience figures, showing a year-over-year increase– attributed to Persian and Arabic TV.
Note the hopeful tone – the World Service budget is actually slated to increase as of 2014.
Of course, we have no idea if this would equate to the preservation of some shortwave radio services, but one can always hope.
