The BBC Hungarian Service started radio broadcasting on 5 September 1939 as part of the BBC's External Services. At the beginning, the aim was to counter the Nazi propaganda during World War II with accurate and impartial information. Impartiality, accuracy and fairness are still crucial in the BBC's news coverage. These are the basic principles which make all BBC outlets, including the Hungarian Service, distinctive in their respective markets. The Hungarian Service provides radio programmes and operates an Internet site for comprehensive coverage of world and Hungarian affairs. In recent years, the Hungarian Service has launched new programmes in Hungary with Kossuth Radio and InfoRadio and also on the 92.1FM in Budapest. Their website, bbchungarian.com has been re-launched in 2004 to make it more user-friendly and content-rich.
