I think they need to change their newscasting a bit, it's not as modern. Maybe instead of news every hour called BBC News have something like CNN with CNN Today and Your World Today.

BBC News 24 is now streaming live on their website 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I don't know if it is supposed to be limited to residents in the UK, but I have no problems watching it.

ROME HARTMAN APPOINTED TO CREATE SIGNATURE NIGHTLY NEWSCAST FOR THE BBC

The BBC has appointed former CBS News producer, Rome Hartman, to develop and serve as executive producer of a new BBC World News one-hour nightly newscast aimed at U.S. audiences, which will be available exclusively on BBC AMERICA and the 24-hour global BBC World News channel.

The U.S.-anchored program represents a major initiative by BBC AMERICA, now in over 55 million homes, to showcase the best of BBC journalism for American audiences and it will be a cornerstone of the weekday evening schedule.

In addition to overseeing the nightly newscast, Hartman will advise on and coordinate production of other U.S.-based and U.S.-facing newscasts for BBC AMERICA and BBC World News.

Multiple Emmy® Award winner, Hartman, was most recently executive producer of The CBS Evening News and a producer of 60 Minutes. He will base the new BBC World News broadcast out of the BBC’s news bureau in Washington, D.C., uniting the BBC’s world-renowned global reports with U.S. based presentation, analysis and comment. This signature newscast is scheduled to begin airing this fall.

Garth Ancier, President, BBC Worldwide America, says, “This is the perfect match. With more than 2,000 journalists and 250 correspondents, BBC News has the world’s foremost newsgathering operation and an unrivalled reputation for impartial, accurate and in-depth reporting. Rome is one of America’s most respected news producers. He will bring vast experience and passion to the BBC and its audience in America.”

Sian Kevill, Editorial Director, BBC World, says, “BBC World News currently attracts around 76 million viewers a week from around the world. This program will be a fantastic addition to the channel’s news schedules enabling us to tailor our programming for key regions and bringing us closer to our audiences.”

Rome Hartman adds: “It’s a true honor to join what is undoubtedly one of the best, most ambitious broadcast news organizations in the world. More and more Americans are seeking smart and sophisticated coverage of the world; coverage the BBC is uniquely capable of providing. Finding new ways to bring the fine work of BBC journalists around the globe to a growing American audience is an incredibly exciting challenge.”

He will report to Richard Porter, Head of News, BBC World and work closely with Sian Kevill, Editorial Director, BBC World, Garth Ancier, President BBC Worldwide America and Michele Grant, Senior Vice President, BBC News and Sport (US).

The BBC has had some bad press the last week or so... Here's the latest.

In its worst crisis since the Hutton report three years ago, the BBC has admitted deceiving viewers over phone-in contests, some involving charity specials like Comic Relief and Children in Need.

The scandals came to light only after an internal investigation triggered by the row over the Queen's photo-shoot in which the BBC claimed, falsely, that she had "stormed out."

They followed on from the Blue Peter case in which the Corporation was fined 50,000 pounds by media regulator Ofcom earlier in July after faking the results of a competition.

Nearly 40,000 children phoned Blue Peter last November in the hope of winning a toy but a technical fault meant no winning entrant could be chosen.

Frei to host BBC US news show
by: Ben Dowell

The BBC's Washington correspondent, Matt Frei, is to anchor BBC World News America, the bulletin with which the corporation hopes to crack the US TV news market.

The BBC World News America bulletin will launch on October 1 on the corporation's US general entertainment cable and satellite channel, BBC America.

Frei will anchor the daily bulletin, airing in the US at 7pm Eastern Standard Time (midnight in London) and globally on news channel BBC World, from the corporation's Washington DC bureau.

It will provide what the BBC describes as "in-depth reports on the major international and US news of the day".

The BBC has ambitions to become the "number one provider of international news in the US" with World News America, according to Michele Grant, the executive vice-president, news and sport for BBC Worldwide America.

"We have some serious competitors such as CNN. But at time when some of our competitors are retrenching there is a major opportunity for the BBC," Ms Grant told MediaGuardian.co.uk.

oh yes they are very, very serious :lol:

"And here we see the majestic B-52. Look closely when her little babies now take their first step into adulthood. They carefully leave the warmth of her mothers belly and set foot into the wild. Silently they fly towards their new home and lodge themselves into the ground and bringing some motherfu**in freedom to anyone in need. The B-52 is now ready to mate again and soon another batch of little bomblings will spawn from its womb to continue the never ending cycle of freedom and democracy."
