BBC World is BBCs worldwide news channel. When they don't show news (about 50% of the time) they usually show a documentary or an interview. Last time I checked they showed a documentary about a bridal fair in Morocco.

In Europe BBC World broadcast from Eutelsat Hotbird V on 11.114Ghz vertical polarization. There are lots of other satellites around the world that also carry BBC World.

The easiest way of watching BBC World is to use Quicktime or RealPlayer to watch their streaming broadcasts over the Internet.
