Film 2010 is to return to BBC One with a new format and presenter.
Led by Claudia Winkleman, the show will feature a wide range of cinema and industry experts and a variety of studio guests.
Claudia currently has her own weekly Arts Show on BBC Radio 2 on Friday nights, delivering a feast of the finest offerings from film, theatre, arts, TV and music.
She said: "Everyone has an opinion on film and I'm looking forward to debating the biggest news and releases with a whole variety of guests each week. I am completely over the moon about being given this enormous honour and am incredibly proud to be to be presenting the new-look Film 2010. It's an honour to follow on from the brilliant Jonathan Ross.
"I have been lucky enough to cover the BAFTAs and present the UK broadcasts of the Oscars and the Golden Globes for years and now to be able to work with the producers on Film 2010 is just amazing."
The long-running BBC One Film show, which started as Film 72, was originally presented by film critic Barry Norman between 1972 and 1998. Jonathan Ross took over from the 1999 series and hosted the show until earlier this year. Claudia begins her new role in September.
Film 2010 is a BBC Vision production, executive produced by Basil Comely.
