    The BBC is to launch a television news channel in Iran, funded by the British government to the tune of ?15m a year.

    The chancellor, Gordon Brown, announced the channel today, saying it would be run by the BBC World Service and would be available to anyone with satellite or cable TV in the region.

    Broadcasting in Farsi, the local language, but operating from London, the service is expected to begin broadcasting in early 2008.
