On November 21, 2005 the Baha'i World News Service reported, "A weekly Baha'i radio program is building bridges of understanding across the more than 100 islands of the Torres Strait in the far north of Australia. Aimed at providing a service to the Baha'i community scattered throughout the islands, the program is now also attracting participation by many of the majority Christian population. The program uses a talkback format and functions as an on-air study circle, based on a self-directed approach to training adopted by Baha'i communities worldwide. In a study circle, participants read through selected passages from the Baha'i writings together, and share their understandings with the guidance of a facilitator."
