From the cover: “Arab Voices celebrates fifty years of BBC broadcasting by the Arabic Service. Based for the most part on BBC and government archives, this book is the first detailed study of the Service’s origins and long-term progress. In looking at the development of a single foreign-language service in a particularly sensitive time and place, Arab Voices sheds light on the history of world broadcasting and also on the way in which broadcasters have sought to present British news and the British way of life to the outside world. It is therefore closely concerned with information policy, and — especially in its discussion of Suez and the Second World War — with the delicate relationship between the BBC and the British government.
