BBC News presenter Ros Atkins has been given a new topical programme.
Each week, Ros will set the record straight on the biggest national and international stories in Ros Atkins On The Week.
Drawing on the critically-acclaimed style of video explainers that Ros has successfully pioneered across social media, Ros Atkins On The Week will take the analysis deeper, tackling a wider range of stories in a longer, distinctive weekly programme.
“I’ve been thrilled by the reaction to our explainer videos and am equally excited to bring this style of story-telling to BBC One and iPlayer,” said Ros.
“No story happens in isolation, and we’ll be looking at how each week’s events intertwine in this new type of news programme from the BBC.
“The volume of information coming at all of us can feel overwhelming so we’ll give viewers the facts, context and analysis they need to make sense of what’s happened.”
The show will run for four weeks, with the first episode expected to launch on Thursday 20 October on BBC One.
The programme will also be available on BBC iPlayer.
