Westway RIP

Westway, the eponymous medical centre of BBC World Service's soap opera, closed its doors for the last time on Friday as the programme ended after eight years.

The announcement that the twice-weekly programme was to end was made in April, when World Service commissioners decided that, in a revamped schedule focusing more on news and factual programmes, there was simply "not enough room" for it. More from BBC News.
Comment: The Guild protested when plans to axe Westway were announced. It was a popular show with a worldwide audience.
