The One Show: Nadia Sawalha and Adrian Chiles

BBC One commits to nightly pan-UK show



Peter Fincham, Controller, BBC One, today announced that The One Show will return to BBC One next year.

 

The live nightly show, an engaging mix of interviews, factual features and topical stories from across the UK, made its debut on BBC One last August and proved a hit with BBC One viewers.

 

When The One Show returns presenters Adrian Chiles and Nadia Sawalha will introduce items from around the UK including features from Birmingham and Bristol, current affairs items from Manchester and consumer stories from Cardiff.

 

Over the course of a year the show will also be going on the road around the UK.

 

Nations and regions continue to play the central role in The One Show and current affairs will also be an essential part of the mix, with reports and investigations every week.

 

Peter Fincham said: "The One Show brings something special and distinctive to the audience throughout the UK - a programme which truly reflects their lives.

 

"I'm delighted to make it a regular fixture in the schedule next year."

 

Peter Salmon, Chief Creative Officer, BBC Vision Studios, said: "Long running dramas aside, this is the biggest ever BBC Production commission and is testimony to the skill and dedication of those who worked on the first run of The One Show.

 

"This is an opportunity to show how the new BBC Vision Studios can link across the UK on massive projects."
