BBC MONITORING

The Summary of World Broadcasts

BBC Monitoring scans international media live, to provide economic and political news from over 140 countries. Reports drawn from radio, television and news agencies are published in the authoritative "Summary of World Broadcasts".

SWB will keep you up to date with major events as well as those "hard to get at" stories often missed by other sources.

Summaries of news bulletins or, in the case of important speeches and events, the complete texts are published with no editorial comment so you can be sure the news you receive is impartial and accurate.

Available in five Parts, covering different geographic areas, the SWB's detailed reports will help you build a reliable picture of developing trends.

SWB is available as a hard-copy publication and also online via a direct dial-in service or an ftp service on the Internet. Sample pages can be seen on the World Wide Web:
