    Abstract

    This project examines, in a world that is rapidly becoming increasingly connected, especially via information shared through social media, how the BBC World Service remains to stay relevant, informative and innovative to a young and ever changing global audience. In order to examine this, the project looks to answer three main areas. Firstly, using two case studies, how the BBC World Service reported on two recent major news stories and utilised modern technology to do so, secondly, how the audience of the BBC World Service developed over the years and what the BBC World Service is doing to keep up with current trends, and thirdly, the financial viability of the BBC World Service, and who should pay for it. To answer these three key areas, the study dwells upon independent reports, think pieces, government papers and first person accounts.
