1) You are, of course, right (but in London area not too bad). It's not so
surprising since it is not aimed at UK listerners. However, now on Radio 4
frequencies 01.00 - 05.30 (I think) when Radio 4 is off-air.
2) Also true, of course, but World Service (BBC World Service, that is, for
those not aware) still offers a good mix of current affairs and some light
entertainment and makes a good alternative to R4 and even R5.
Also a different perspective on news with a greater international content.
