I'm happy for the return of the BBC overnight- I really missed that when it was canceled years ago. But I'm really sorry to see Performance Today go. I typically listen to Radio Swiss Classic for classical music, but they don't have any sort of current, performance oriented show like Performance Today.
As for "World Have Your Say" this is a really unfortunate choice for a drive-time slot. It's sleep-inducing. I'd much rather see Talk of the Nation return to that slot.
The PBS News Hour doesn't seem to be working as a radio "show." It seems like it's a very different thing for people to be speaking to a tv camera instead of a radio mic...There's an entire visual communication between anchors and guests that goes on in tv that gets stripped when the audio feed is dumped onto radio. It ultimately comes off as very flat and stale on the radio.
