Talking to the World - <em>World Have your Say</em> launches on BBC World News

London. Tackling the big issues and stories that people around the world want to discuss, World Have your Say - the BBC’s award-winning global interactive news discussion show on radio - is launching a new weekly TV edition of the show which will broadcast every Friday on BBC World News television from Friday 4 February, from 15:00 GMT.

Hosted on the BBC’s international news services – on radio (BBC World Service) and now on TV (BBC World News) - the show is a global conversation with the agenda set by everyone taking part. The show uses different technology to enable as many people as possible in different parts of the world to join the debate via online bbc.co.uk/blogs/worldhaveyoursay, Twitter (@bbc_whys), Facebook (World Have Your Say), telephone and on air.

Presented by Ros Atkins, the new television show will broadcast weekly on BBC World News, and gives audiences around the world the opportunity to take part in the big debates and offer opinions on the news agenda. The channel has already broadcast a number of successful one-off World Have your Say specials including the release of Ang San Su Kyi, the rescue of the Chilean miners, and special editions from South Africa during last year’s World Cup.

World Have Your Say was first launched in 1995 on BBC World Service radio, and during the past five years has produced shows from all around the world including a shack in Kliptown, Soweto, South Africa; an orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Milles Collines hotel in Kigali, Rwanda, where many were saved from the genocide; a factory in Dharavi, Asia’s biggest slum in Mumbai, India; and a refugee camp in Calais, France, where Afghans were waiting for the chance to cross the English Channel to Britain. The programme was also the first to broadcast live from Robben Island, South Africa, where Nelson Mandela had been imprisoned, on the former president’s 90th birthday.
In 2008, the programme won gold at the 2008 Sony Radio Awards in the UK, in the Listener Participation category.

Host Ros Atkins said, “World Have your Say is a programme that brings something quite unique to BBC World News - we've time to have free-flowing discussions around the issues that people around the world are really engaging with. And most importantly of all, those discussions are always open to whoever is watching. With World Have you Say now on three platforms, we're able to bring together three huge global audiences and this gives us a chance to host extraordinary conversations."
