    The BBC World Service is an international radio service (mostly news) that the BBC puts out. People in the UK can also hear it, and it replaces the main radio news channel (Radio 4) between 1am and 6am.

    Was there more? If so, is there anyway to hear this in its entirety?

    That's all I'm aware of - it seems to come in without an intro, doesn't it!

    Great presentation but so heart breaking when Ron Davis is asked how much time he thinks he has available in order to save his son and he answers: "I don't know. It could be a few weeks or a few years."

    Very sad. I know he was referring to his son's timeline, but that recent Newser article mentioned that Ron Davis is 74, it's quite sobering.

    Some PBS stations here pick up BBC World Service. One that I listen to airs it overnight. That does nothing to help me get to bed at a reasonable time! News hour is one of the programs they broadcast, but I did not hear this.
