BBC World Service hacked?

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by pp0470, Aug 9, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. FM broadcast was been 'overlaid' by what sounded like arabic language transmission - started about 0128hrs - FM has now (0138hrs) gone over to pre-recorded programme (I think)

    Internet transmission is still having an 'overlaid' output.

    BBC iPlayer - Listen live - BBC World Service

    Can anyone confirm / explain?
  2. Appears to be fixed, but was 10mins of Arabic overlaid on English language transmission.

    May have been a BBC editting fault - most likely infact.

    Stand down.

  6. Lillibullero! I knew something wasn't quite right - Stand To!!

    I go back to my original assertion that the WS has been hacked - Lillibullero IS the WS!

    I have very fond memories of holding a small SW radio in the air, in a bamboo hut with the South China Sea lapping below me, whilst laid out with the shits.

    After a rendition of lillibullero (conducted by myself) they went to live footy match reports (it was a Saturday) and the presenter said 'And now to Moss Lane and Altrincham F.C.,.... '

    I nearly wept.

    Still listen, primarily for FOOCorrespondant and such.
