MBC position clarified

Your recent article in the 25 March edition of MEED ‘Taming the Tiger’ highlighted the major changes taking place in broadcasting in the Middle East at present.

However, I must correct one factual error on your part: MBC is already rebroadcast in Bahrain along with the other services you mention, and you can be sure that MBC will endeavour to make available to Arab speakers its unique pan-Arab service wherever satellite dishes may be impractical or unavailable.

Yours sincerely
