The BBC World Service is 80 today

If it's ever been your lifeline back to home you'll know what a wonderful thing the BBC World Service is. I remember how it was our link back to the football when I went travelling.

It was sitting on top of a roof in Jodphur in India that we heard Wayne Rooney's first goal for Everton against Arsenal. Happy memories of being huddled round that little shortwave radio waiting for the news or the football coverage to start each week.
