BFBS Radio Sitrep
Sitrep is a unique current affairs radio programme produced by the British Forces News team with expert analysis of Defence and Foreign Affairs as our agenda. Presented by Kate Gerbeau and featuring our Forces News Defence Analyst Christopher Lee, Sitrep is the only place on radio where you'll find a comprehensive look back at the week's most significant events in Defence.

After  a six month campaign it’s the end of the road for Gaddafi as Tripoli falls – but what’s next for Libya?
In a special edition Sitrep speaks to the Secretary of State for Defence, Liam Fox, who discusses how Britain has been helping the rebels track down Gaddafi and the help NATO can provide to help a smooth transition of government.
Plus: the key role RAF’s Sentinel spy plane has played in intelligence gathering.
