The BBC World Service broadcasts in excess of seven hours a week of science on its English language network and many similar programmes on its 38 vernacular services. In addition, World Service News - both radio and television - carry regular science reports.
With an audience of more than 120 million overseas - with many in the UK listening on Radio 4 long wave, BBC local radio, and on the Astra satellite - the BBC is ensuring that while Britain's international position in scientific research is in decline, its position in international science broadcasting remains pre-eminent.
