I'll catch the German and French broadcasts in the evenings. I can  
follow enough German to generally make sense of the broadcast. The  
French news segments have English subtitles which makes them easy to  
follow. The different perspectives are refreshing from the wholly  
American view and lets me see how our actions are seen abroad.

Although during the prime time, the broadcast is more directed to  
medical information mostly originating from UNMC.
