With the changing times, there are many changes in the habits of people. As a result, most of the people are turning to digital media instead of TV or radio and in view of this the BBC is going to put more emphasis on digital media. The BBC’s television and radio services are being affected by increasing public interest in digital media. As a result, the company is facing losses and hence it has been decided to discontinue many services.
In July the broadcaster detailed plans to merge BBC World News Television and its domestic counterpart into a single channel to launch in April the following year. BBC World Service is one of the UK’s most recognized global brands and currently operates in 41 languages worldwide with a viewership of approximately 364 million people.
Of the 41 languages in which BBC broadcasts news, 11 languages are broadcast only through digital channels. “Today’s proposals will result in the elimination of a total of 382 posts,” the BBC said. Services in eleven languages- Azerbaijani, Brazilian, Marathi, Mundo, Punjabi, Russian, Serbian, Sinhala, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese are already digital. This time seven more languages will be added to this list which are Chinese, Gujarati, Igbo, Indonesian, Pidgin, Urdu and Yoruba.
In addition, the BBC may also shut down radio services in several languages. These languages are Arabic, Persian, Kyrgyz, Hindi, Bengali, Chinese, Indonesian, Tamil and Urdu. However, whether this service will be discontinued or not depends entirely on the proposals of the employees and unions of the company.
The broadcaster insisted that no language services would be shut down. However some productions will move out of London and the schedule will change. Thai service will go to Bangkok, Korean service to Seoul and Bangla service to Dhaka. Focus on Africa” television bulletin will be broadcast from Nairobi.
What did the BBC director say on the verdict?
BBC World Service director Lillian Landor said expanding digital services was a “forceful affair” as viewership more than doubled from 2018.
“The way audiences are accessing news and content is changing and the challenge is growing to reach and connect quality, reliable journalism to people around the world,” he said.
