Details of a new news programme on BBC One, launching Spring 2013 and presented by BBC's World Affairs Editor, John Simpson.
BBC News: The Editors, a new monthly news programme commissioned for BBC One, is to launch in spring 2013.
Presented by John Simpson, the BBC’s World Affairs Editor, the programme will showcase the journalistic skill on offer from the BBC’s on-air editors, all of whom have a wealth of editorial experience in their specialist area.
The monthly, half-hour programme will comprise a selection of short and engaging films on a variety of topics, including arts, sport and science alongside business, politics and foreign affairs. Each informative report will focus on one editor’s particular area of expertise and will strive to answer a specific question, such as ‘has the welfare state had its day?’, or ‘what’s wrong with football?’
