BBC World Service goes DAB+ in Brussels

The BBC World Service is launching on DAB radio in Brussels this month, as the station launches a new series called World Questions.

World Questions gives people across Europe the chance to question key players and discuss issues impacting Europe and the EU. The first debate will take place in Brussels on 17 November, to air on 21 November.

In a series of special events in the capitals of Europe, the BBC’s Jonathan Dimbleby will invite members of the public in Brussels, Berlin, Athens and Riga to put questions to a panel made up of politicians as well as academics, writers and political analysts.

The station will be on the Norkring Belgium DAB+ network, which launched earlier this year.

Mary Hockaday, Controller of World Service English says: “The BBC World Service is the home of impartial reporting and international debate. With Europe and its institutions under increasing scrutiny, now is the ideal time for the BBC to be broadcasting into Brussels on DAB+ and we’re delighted to partner with Norkring DAB+ to make this happen.”
