Celebrating 25 years of international TV broadcasting
The award-winning 24-hour TV channel, BBC World News, is celebrating its 25th birthday this month and will mark its silver anniversary with a special on-screen look.
The English language channel originally launched with a half hour news bulletin as World Service Television (WSTV) on Monday 11 March 1991.
Eight months later, WSTV became a 24-hour news operation and launched in Asia, the start of its rapid growth which would eventually see it become available in more than 200 countries and territories.
In 1995 it re-launched as BBC World before changing its name to BBC World News in 2008 and moving to a new 24-hour multi-platform building dubbed 'the world's news room' in 2013.
"The world has changed dramatically for all of us in the past 25 years and so has the way we get news from the field to our viewers," said BBC Global News Ltd CEO Jim Egan.
"We're proud that, in a world of great uncertainty and in a news industry which is every bit as volatile, BBC World News continues to grow and is the most trusted source of global television news available anywhere."
My most memorable moment
From 9-11 to the death of Nelson Mandela, BBC World News presenters recall their most vivid memory of working on the channel.
