The World Service schedule, generally speaking, is composed of a
combination of daily and weekly programs.  The hours that WBUR
currently carries are pretty much all daily shows (mostly World
Briefing and The World Today), but there are several hours each day
devoted to weekly (or at least less-than-daily) programs like "FOOC",
"Science in Action", "Politics UK", "Heart and Soul", "Global
Business", and so on.  These are generally half-hour shows.

I suspect the biggest problem for most stations with carrying the BBC
in the afternoon is the limited opportunity for underwriting.  There
are only two one-minute breaks in an hour of World Service
