BBC World Service UK / US Military Relations Prog on now

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Good CO, Jan 12, 2006.

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:

    From an email I only just read:

    "I work for a BBC World Service global discussion programme called World Have Your
    Say, and we're going to be discussing relations between the US and UK soldiers after
    this article by Brigadier Nigel Aylwin-Foster who criticised the US military in Iraq.


    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4603136.stm

    Our programme goes out between 1800 and 1900 GMT, and we're trying to reach members
    of the UK military who have served with US forces
    . We're hoping to have both US and
    UK service members to join the discussion.

    Thanks for any help that you might be able to offer."

    I'm assuming this is 1800-1900 today - now.

    Is this 'The BBC' or 'Voice of America' :?
     
  5. I wondered the same thing myself. Scant representation from British Forces.Endex -It was crap.
    A 15 minute 'filler' is not the way to treat this topic Beeb lurkers.

    My considered opinion about this, having caught a little, is that Rice (or minion) rang Straw (or minion) asking the FCO to pull a few strings as VoA get limited serious audience in the Levant.
