Are you asking about the Spanish version? Oct 15, 2004

Because this is at:

Otherwise, the closest to the BBC in Spanish was CNN's Spanish page,, which was recently shut down without prior notice and without any explanation. I do not know of any equivalents which are as comprehensive as the BBC Spanish page or the old CNN page for world news in Spanish.

What features are you looking for? Oct 15, 2004

The bbc site has quite a few different features, are there any particular features you want?
Because there are loads of radio stations you can listen to on the internet, of course, as well as newspapers and the like.

Some French ones Oct 16, 2004

This site is good for French radios. You click on the logo to hear the radio and on the station name for its website:

I usually just listen to the radio stations but I have just had a look at RFI (Radio France Internationale)'s news page and it is pretty impressive.

TF1, FR2, France Info, France Inter ... Oct 16, 2004 and are the websites of two famous French TV channels.

TF1 is a private one (more like UK Channel 5) and FR2 (France 2) is the national public TV channel.

As for radio, "France Info" and "France Inter" are two companies from the "Radio France" broadcast corporation. They all have website, just google to get the exact link.
