World News Tonight
Name two daily news programmes on British television which concentrate only on international events. Can't do it? Actually there's only one - it runs on the digital channel BBC Four and until Friday it was known as The World.
From tonight it has a new name, World News Today, and a new slot, 7pm. But some things stay the same.
It's unashamedly serious; but that doesn't mean it's not engaging or stimulating. And it's still going to be presented by Zeinab Badawi, who is an outstanding presenter and interviewer.
The reason for the change? Well the programme has always been produced by BBC World on behalf of BBC Four, and we've been gradually developing the concept of World News Today across our key hours of the day.
It made sense to extend it to the programme we make for BBC Four, using essentially the same structure and taking the opportunity to refresh the graphics and music which identifies the programme.
We will soon have four editions of World News Today on air, sharing the same structure and appearance, but each targeted at a slightly different audience. Tonight's programme will be for BBC Four viewers in Britain and, simultaneously, BBC World's audiences in continental Europe. Others are (or will be) aimed at the USA, South Asia and the Far East.
At a time when foreign news coverage is under pressure in many areas of the British media, we're proud to produce a programme which aims to produce a truly international perspective on events, and we think there's demand out there from among you, the audience.
As a taster for tonight, we'll be looking at sanctions against Sudan, the crisis facing the leadership of the Israeli government, and the closure of one of the biggest TV stations in Venezuela. We'd love to know what you think, whether you're watching in the UK or elsewhere.
