"BBC to Create Online Archives for Axed Foreign-Language Services"
From a Journalism.co.uk Post by Sarah Marshall:
An archive of broadcasts from BBC World Service radio stations due to be axed is being made available online.
Services involved in the archive plans include BBC Para Africa, the Portuguese service for Africa, which has made audio and photos from its 72-year-history available on its website.
A number of language services are being cut as part of last year’s comprehensive spending review, which saw the BBC agree to take over the funding of the World Service from the Foreign Office.
