BBC World News is a Great Source of News and Information @ Technotrixs.com As a freelance writer, I try to keep up on current events on a daily basis. While there are a number of very good news sources out there, I have found the best and most complete news coverage available can be found on the BBC World News.

I stumbled upon the BBC World News television program a number of years ago when I was flipping through the channels, actually looking for something kind of light. I had just been to England when I happened to find the channel, so I decided to leave it on for a while, completely expecting to see some news from the places I had recently visited.

I did hear some British local news, and it was really interesting to see what was going on in the places I had just recently traveled, but what impressed me more was the fact that the program really lived up to its name. It is called BBC World News, and it really does cover news throughout the entire world, not just in the U.K. and the United States.

BBC World News

I saw a story about flooding in Zimbabwe and how people were having to flee to other countries to escape the desperate situations. I saw another story about problems in Central America with the economy and how the situation was becoming more and more delicate.

I saw stories from the European continent, and about a store owner in Belgium who had some special program he ran for underprivileged children. BBC World News offered comprehensive news coverage from across the globe, and got me to thinking about places I had not really thought about since I had studied geography in high school.

I was really impressed, and I started to wonder why so few news outlets really try to provide news coverage from around the world. It just seems like most news organizations cover the United States, give a brief account of what is going on in the rest of the world, and then on to weather and sports.

Now, I know that the United States is a very large country and there is always plenty of news to go around. I would just like to see what is going on in other places on a regular basis so that I don't always feel so insulated.

I now watch BBC World News on an almost daily basis and am very happy with their news coverage. It provides plenty of information about the U.S. and United Kingdom, but it also lets me know what is happening in other parts of the world. I think that it is important, especially in this day and age, that people try to be more aware of what is going on in the world around them and try to understand where other people are coming from; I think that BBC World News does just that.
