BBC WS - How many languages?

I have made comments in this blog of the uneven nature of BBC World. Watching the "raw feed" in many parts of Europe is very difficult - programmes are continually interupted for non-existant commercial breaks and an automated programme info sequence wows in, often in mid sentence. BBC World has some great programmes of its own, like Click and Hard Talk. But when you see a programme promo for a programme that has just finished, then you wonder who is looking after channel continuity. The BBC World website is also only partially updated. Checked the links page this evening to see that BBC World Service radio is still broadcasting in 43 languages. Nope, it has been 33 for nearly a year now.
