"India is the only market where we tailor-make our programs to gain relevance. We are still growing and developing our product. Our commitment here is solid."1

- Jane Gorard, Director, Marketing, BBC World in January 2002.

BBC World Demands A Broader View (Ership)

In February 2003, BBC World launched 'Demand a Broader View,' its worldwide advertisement campaign in India, to increase its brand awareness2 (Refer Figure I.) The campaign focused on the channel's claim that it provided an impartial, multi-dimensional report to viewers.

Analysts pointed out that with 6 more domestic news channels3 to be launched in 2003, BBC World had no choice but to increase its marketing activities. Along with promotional activities, BBC World re-launched India-centric programs during prime time, which had earlier been shifted to weekend slots after the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Centre4.
