The BBC World Service is not a domestic broadcasting service.  Their 
primary listening area is the world.  They are not promoting any 
services, nor do they carry any advertising.  They exist to be Great 
Britain's voice to the world.  They are also one of, if not the best, 
most un-biased news source in the world.
