Description:

As its name suggests, the BBC World Service brings together news from all corners of the world. Visitors can listen to their radio programs online, and they will get a heady sampling of their work just by perusing the special reports, topical updates, and commentaries on the homepage. In the "News Programmes" area, visitors can avail themselves of different World Service shows, including "Newshour", "The World Today", and "Business Daily". Moving on, visitors can chime in with their two cents at the "Over to You" area. Here they can weigh in on topics like citizen journalism, the world's superpowers, and fashions and societal values in Ghana. Also on the homepage is a section titled "Special Reports", which includes timely news features on the trains of India, drugs in Mexico, and Charles Darwin.
