The World Service Lillibullero...the truth here
Peter Boyd of Oakville, Ontario knew the BBC World Service...
Many years ago in the dark ages before the internet I worked in many places like the Canadian Arctic, Saudi Arabia and Libya. The locations I was in were secluded and the only source of news was via short wave radio.
I still comment that back then when the cold war still ran warm I would listen to the "Voice of America" for their perspective, "Radio Moscow" for their perspective, then I would wait in anticipation for the strains of Lillibullero and the words "This is London".
I could count on the BBC World Service for the truth.
