       Around the world

         In 1991 broadcasts of the programme, under the
         new name “Discovery”,  began from Trans World
         Radio Africa through their transmitters in
         Swaziland, covering all of southern Africa. These
         transmissions continued until March 2018 with the
         addition of coverage by satellite from 2003 and
         relays by local FM stations in South Africa,
         Tanzania and Malawi.
         From 2008  to 2017 broadcasts went out to Ghana,
         Nigeria and West Africa from TWR Benin.
         Between 1992 and 2007 “Discovery” was broadcast
         to India from FEBA, Seychelles; between 1995 and
         1998 from The Voice of Hope in south Lebanon to
         the Middle East and for a time in 1996 from a
         transmitter in Tbilisi, Georgia, to Asia.

         Christian Light Radio, Malta carried the programme
         between  2001 and 2008 and Bible Voice stations  in
         Kenya (2007 -2010)

         In addition to the overseas broadcasts, “Discovery”
         was heard in the UK, Ireland and Europe over United
         Christian Broadcasters  (1993—2000) and over Trans
         World Radio UK on Sky satellite and the Internet

         Local broadcasts will still be heard from time to time

                                           Since the early days of GBS, literature for
                                           following-up the programme  was an
                                           important part of the ministry. From the
                                           1990’s four booklets were published each
                                           year containing the studies broadcast on
                                           the programme.
                                           These booklets were sent to listeners without
                                           charge and  several thousands have gone
                                           out to Africa, India, Malta, the Middle East
                                           and the UK.
