About the programme
Presented by Mark Carruthers The View takes on the big political stories and holds those behind them to account.
With head-to-head interviews, exclusive stories and expert analysis from BBC Northern Ireland political correspondents, Mark will also be joined by regular commentators to debate the highs and lows of the political week in the 30-minute programme.
With a signature theme tune by Duke Special, The View aims to bring a fresh look to politics on BBC Northern Ireland.
Mark Carruthers said: “For me this is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in our new-look political programme right from its very inception - and given that I’m a bit of a politics nut, it just doesn’t get any better than that.
“The View won’t just be for the political devotees. We hope people feel they can watch the programme without having to be up to speed with every political twist and turn.
“We’ll have lively, challenging interviews with our politicians in the mix, of course, and we’ll also have sharp analysis from our regular team of experts - and a dash of satire just to keep everyone on their toes!”
Viewers will also be able to react to stories and put their views to Mark during the live programme via Twitter.
