BBC BBC Radio 2 has axed three of its longest-running shows, and their veteran male presenters, in a station shake-up that promotes women. Listen to the Band, a weekly mix of brass and military band music hosted by Frank Renton for the past 23 years, is to go, as is The Organist Returns, presented by Nigel Ogden. Paul Jones, the former Manfred Mann singer and presenter of a Radio 2 rhythm and blues show for more than 30 years, is also leaving the station.

For generations and millions of people living behind the Iron Curtain, for Burmese, Chinese and others brave enough to tune in to foreign broadcasts, for Africans repressed by civil war and turmoil, the BBC World Service in English and in local languages has been a voice of truth and hope penetrating the gloomy propaganda of communism, dictatorship, repression and, sometimes, criminally kleptocratic or stupid governments.

With the growing global reach of the Internet and world television channels, the BBC should be on the cusp of a golden age as an international broadcaster and promoter of debate about issues vital to the future of the planet. Instead the reputation is at risk from a strange mixture of little England and a tabloid mentality.

World Service radio still tries to preserve traditional values in spite of pressures on it. On TV, the BBC yells the latest headlines, like a tabloid newspaper with a bold front page but with little background or explanation inside.

Yes, BBC World does run features. It was broadcast on every hour for 16 hours. Repetition is the order of the hour and day. For hours at a time, especially when the election was called, on voting day and as David Cameron and Nick Clegg and their parties struggled to form an unlikely coalition government, BBC World News forgot the world outside and broadcast only about the misty little Westminster district.

Since his journey had been expected for weeks, it was only worth a simple confirmation statement — 10 seconds maximum — that Brown, as expected, had called the election for May 6. The world moves on. Even when the discussions were going on behind closed doors, the talking heads yapped on and on, saying nothing at yawning length.

This was not news: This was indulgence of expensive expenses. Did some senior executive just decide to throw some of the bills for hiring the helicopter and the special election studio outside Parliament at BBC World or did they instruct the global channel to go local?

BBC World, sadly, is betraying its name. The Financial Times may be an exception with its multitude of printing plants and international staff.

Could it also be that radio is more conducive to discussion and careful thinking than television with its insistent demand for color and pictures?

In its corridors, canteens and studios many different nationalities rub shoulders, including speakers of Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Hausa, Hindi, Persian, Swahili, so there is a much more international buzz.

I hope they will not become the poor relation to British broadcasters who can hardly see beyond the misty islands.

There are some simple remedies. Give news a bigger canvas of at least an hour, preferably two, and go into depth with sharp background and comment. If the BBC has its own expert, let him or her raise questions and make honest comments. Give your good correspondents, like Roland Buerk in Tokyo and John Sudworth in Seoul, greater time to explore, show their knowledge and their countries.

Get beyond the crash-bang-wallop news and take India, Asia and Africa seriously. Close the Singapore business office and establish business offices in Hong Kong and Japan.Some BBC presenters are employed by Met Office and will see change the UK's largest private sector weather business, with offices in 17 countries around the world, was announced as the Met.

Filipino broadcast journalist Rico Hizon was again a source of national pride as he was awarded by the 22nd Asian Television Awards (ATA) for Newsday, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) World News program he co-anchors live in Singapore with Babita Sharma in London.
