More and more broadcasters are battling for attention in the ever more crowded market for world news. What are their aims and how do they appeal to a global audience? How are they responding to the challenges posed by new players and increasingly polarised perspectives? How do you reconcile supposedly universal news values with the projection of an individual nation's 'soft power'?
