Any reason why Focus on Africa continues to broadcast through the holidays?

IIRC Focus on Africa is syndicated across different television networks in Africa (effectively the equivalent to World News America syndicated across PBS stations in the US.

Wonder why that continues when World News America goes on hiatus with a generic bulletin going out to PBS.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Where did today’s World Business Report come from never seen it.

Why does BBC World News continue to waste what seems to me, money and resources on 5 minute WBR and Sport Today’s? Do we still really need to see these annoying repetitive features before the top of the hour, which seem to be longer than a live edition of WBR and sport today. I just don’t get it, most of the time the channel seems like a big advert.
