BBC World News | 30th October 2017 Onwards

(October 2017)

Since India has so many news channels, I wonder why BBC World News is even airing regular India-specific programming in the first place. One would think that the unique selling point of BBC WN is its international coverage, and that competing against India's own networks with domestic news coverage is an uphill struggle.

Meanwhile, the BBC's own backyard -- Europe -- often seems undercovered, at least when it comes to long-form programming.

Money Daily, launching on Monday 5 November, is the newest offering from BBC News Africa, bringing a concise daily round-up of the day’s business and economic headlines for all viewers.

It is the first daily television show from the BBC in Africa that will broadcast from the BBC’s new Kenyan studio. Every programme will include topical insight and commentary from the BBC Biz 100 - a specially chosen group of entrepreneurs, creatives, business leaders and other innovators from across the continent.

Quote:
Highlights from the programmes will be made available and shareable on @BBCAfrica social media pages

AND what seems to be a replacing India Business Report, which was cancelled a while ago:

Quote:
The BBC is launching a brand new business programme which will broadcast from the BBC’s Delhi bureau and air on both BBC World Service English (radio) and BBC World News (TV).

Starting 9 November in the prime-time slot of 9pm IST, WorklifeIndia will be a half-hour weekly programme providing real-time conversations on the realities of modern life.

Anchored from the Delhi studio, specially adapted for TV and radio, and presented by Divya Arya and Devina Gupta, it will tackle issues around money, work, family, business and finance for both a South Asian audience and global audience. Whether it’s discussing women in the workplace, schooling, starting a business, technology, or creativity, the show will be informative, revealing, personal and above all relevant. The aim is to offer a positive understanding of the changing factors that shape all our lives. The programme will then go daily in Spring 2019, and will also be available as a podcast.

Its a complete joke that the BBC keeps spending more on content abroad while making cuts for content at home.

But the two aren't comparable, since BBC WN is funded commercially, while the BBC's domestic operations are funded by the license fee.

Have noticed that while Mike Embley is still presenting the usual weekday evening shift on BBC World, it's been a litany of various other presenters for the overnight shift on weekends, mostly Lewis-Vaughn Jones (for those who remember, he was from ITV) and some others, but not very consistent. Anyone know where Nkem Ifejika has disappeared to, as he normally did the overnight shift on weekends? Always loved to hear his voice presenting the evening simulcast on the News Channel in the UK.


Don't forget Martin Stanford in that mix for the overnight shift. He was on at 1am yesterday on BBC World.

Saw on Twitter earlier that the BBC have launched their biggest bureau outside of London in Kenya, with a new studio to match. It uses the normal screens and light strip design language we've seen since 2013, but once again the Victoria Derbyshire-style stand-up desk has cropped up somewhere it shouldn't... Longing for the day that they manage to reign all the various offshoots under a cohesive design package!

Just to point out that the Kenya development is a result of the BBC World Service's income boost from the Government.

The new Money Daily TV programme is a BBC World Service not a BBC World News programme (big difference in funding arrangements). In Business Africa (working title), due to launch 2nd week in 2019 is a BBC World News programme.

Politics - Lord Hall wants the Government to cough up some money for BBC World News in Europe.

Confirmed that public subsidy has been sought https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201719/cmselect/cmpubacc/670/670.pdf (page 6)

Almost certain BBC World News is showing a different font in the ticker right now.

I'm fairly sure that's still Helvetica, though of course it's not usually lowercase like that.

Watching the European feed, I can't see any difference.
