MUMBAI: BBC News television and radio can for the first time be delivered directly to computer desktops in the UK via RSS – also known as Really Simple Syndication.

A wide variety of news reports in audio and video - including the latest breaking news pictures, exclusive interviews, background features and analysis - is now available from the BBC News website. RSS means that internet users can keep up to date with the information they want, without having to visit multiple sites.

All users need to do ,is, select one of the many newsreader applications available on the web, which enables them to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds they want – including BBC News audio and video.

Clips and packages filed by some of the BBC's top correspondents are available from the best of BBC News' flagship programmes including; News 24, BBC One's national bulletins, Newsnight and Radio 4's, Today programme. Users can select the video or audio they want and have it delivered directly to their desktop – to be viewed at their leisure – by following a few simple steps.

This latest offering builds on the BBC News website's well-established RSS service for text content and the BBC News Player – the home of BBC news in video and audio. All the media is available in broadband (for UK users), narrowband, Real and Windows formats. Website owners will also be able to integrate BBC News video and audio into their own sites via this new RSS service. You can find out more here.

BBC software developer, Joel Chippindale ,says, "This is a big step forward - making it far easier to keep up to date with the latest audio and video news clips from the BBC. It's a great addition to our existing RSS service
