International Relations - South Korean delegation
A delegation from the Korean Broadcasting Service (KBS) the state broadcaster of South Korea, visited the UK recently to find out in particular how BBC Radio 4 works. KBS is a major broadcaster at home and abroad, with multiple national networks and global radio services in 11 different languages as well. The delegation was interested in Radio 4 as it is the nearest UK network to its own speech network KBS Radio 1.
As part of their visit they requested a meeting with RIG to learn about independent production in the UK, and the establishment and achievements of its trade association. Pictured here is KBS Radio Programming & Planning Deputy Director Hyuck-whee Lee with RIG Vice-Chair Mike Hally.
