BBC News completes move to Broadcasting House

BBC News has today completed its move to its new headquarters at Broadcasting House. At 1pm, the new look BBC News Channel and BBC One News bulletins were unveiled.

The relaunch follows a year of changes for BBC News output, which started around this last year with the departure of BBC Sport and then BBC Breakfast to new studios in Salford, and the move of The Andrew Marr Show, Sunday Politics, Newsnight and Newswatch in the autumn.

In January, the BBC's international channel BBC World News commenced its move to Broadcasting House, with overnight and early morning news bulletins following a few weeks later. Following today's re-launch the BBC News Channel will share the same style graphics adopted by BBC World News in January.

BBC One News bulletins will now be permanently available in high definition on BBC One HD. HD news bulletins were first shown last year during the Olympics.

For the first time, all BBC domestic and international news bulletins for TV and radio will originate from the same building. Broadcasting House becomes the biggest news centre in Europe.

On the BBC News Channel, there have also been changes to the presenter schedule. Jane Hill and Matthew Amroliwala have moved to the weekday afternoon slot. As reported by a516digital last week, Clive Myrie will present during the late evening, where a new-twice nightly programme will review the next day's newspapers. Clive Myrie will share presenting duties with Martine Croxall.

Business news provision has changed, with market updates now incorporated into the headlines at 45 minutes past. The BBC's business reporters will continue to provide the latest on money-related news within the bulletins, but many of the regular business updates, which previously aired at 40 minutes past have been axed in accordance with cost-cutting measures approved by the BBC Trust last year.

During the weekends on the BBC News Channel, there will also be a new look for The Film Review with Mark Kermode - previously known as "Film24" from the old BBC News 24 era. International current affairs show Our World, which also airs on BBC World News, will be given an expanded run.
