The world service remains something to be very proud of. In many countries, which have national broadcasters who are controlled by their governments, it is still the most trusted source of news and information. It is arguably our most valuable export, as it sets us apart from almost everyone else and shows the best aspects of British standards of respect and accuracy. An image that is very important but under threat from the current government and especially the PM.

Funding that export, via the licence fee, and keeping the government's, of any hue, mucky hands off it, seems like very good value for money to me. Money we should all be willing and proud to pay.

It's not all about "me" and what "I" get out of it. It's much bigger than that.

Wholeheartedly agree with all that (and that's a first).

I too see the World Service as something to be proud of, possibly unique in the world, and offering truth and hope to people who might otherwise be deprived of those things. But in my case it is indeed also 'about "me" and what "I" get out of it': when I'm driving, and Radio 4 and LBC are getting on my nerves, I have no hesitation in switching to World Service - and then often staying with it.

Try classic fm. Very calming with no opinions or stupid competitions.
