World Service

The BBC Central Asia and Caucasus Service started in November 1994. It now broadcasts programmes in five languages (Uzbek, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Azeri and Russian) to eight new states with a total population of about seventy million. These are the five Central Asian republics of Uzbekistan, Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and the three republics of Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia in the Caucasus.

The programmes bring the outside world closer to the peoples of Central Asia with news and analysis from the BBC’s international network of correspondents and reports on regional events from our own journalists in the region.
