Description: The English language service broadcasts 24 hours a day. In June 2009 the BBC reported that the World Service's average weekly audience had reached 188 million people. The World Service is funded by grant-in-aid through the Foreign and Commonwealth Office by the British Government — unlike the BBC's domestic radio and television services, which are primarily funded by a compulsory licence fee levied on every household in the United Kingdom using a television to watch programmes as they are being broadcast. Despite this form of funding, the World Service remains editorially independent,although the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is closely consulted in decisions about which languages are broadcast.

International news, analysis and information from BBC World Service radio in English is available around the world 24 hours a day.
