http://www.indiantelevision.com/sites/drupal7.indiantelevision.co.in/files/styles/smartcrop_800x800/public/images/tv-images/2014/02/13/bbc_0.jpg?itok=8XYv_LaC

MUMBAI: The BBC’s new global news programme, Outside Source goes live next week, testing new ground in TV news presentation.



The new half hour week day show will begin broadcasting live on BBC World News TV from Monday, February 17th at 12.30pm. The innovative programme, presented by Ros Atkins, embraces the technology available in the BBC’s new Broadcasting House in London, moving news presentation away from the traditional studio environment.



Using a bespoke touch screen, Ros is able to bring audiencesthe latest on the stories of the day. From his base position in the heart of the BBC’s state of the art news room he is able to share packages as they are filed by correspondents out in the field, monitor instant reactions on social media and show live feeds of a developing story, all at the swipe of the screen.



Outside Source will use a combination of fixed cameras and radio cameras and will be the first programme to use multiple radio cameras out of new Broadcasting House. This will allow Ros to present segments of the show live from anywhere in the building.



Moving out of the studio means the show can tap in to the wealth of experience provided across the BBC’s language services such as BBC Persian, also based in Broadcasting House.Audiences can thenhear direct from teams as they work on developing stories and learn the latest updates.



Outside Source aims to open up the news process, enabling people to discover the latest on the stories that matter to them. A version of the programme began broadcasting on BBC World Service Radio in October and following the launch of the TV show work will begin on developing the online offer for BBC.com



Recognising the impact social media now plays in journalism, Outside Source will also connect with BBC Trending (#bbctrending), the new online and radio offering which explains the stories the world is sharing.Plus audiences will be encouraged to engage with Outside Source both during and outside of the broadcasts, using the twitter handle @bbcos.



Outside Source presenter Ros Atkins said:

 

“I’m incredibly excited this show has come together. It’s taking BBC News into new territory and allowing us to maximise the vast resources of New Broadcasting House. We have journalists working in 28 different languages, and because I am broadcasting in the newsroom, I can reach the right people on the most important stories as quickly as possible. It will be real-time news in which stories evolve as we combine our latest information and expertise with everyone else’s. The OS touchscreen also allows me to share exactly what information, pictures and analysis is available to us at any one time. It’s like no other TV news programme I’ve seen, and I’m thrilled to be hosting it.”



Richard Porter, Controller of English, Global News, said: “Outside Source is about opening up the process of telling stories. It moves away from the news reader presenting to the audience in a traditional studio environment towards engaging with viewers and inviting them to be part of what is going on; sharing what they know about the stories that matter to them. We are breaking new ground by deconstructing a news bulletin, while still providing the reliable and authoritative coverage our global audience expects.”



Outside Source will launch on BBC World News on Monday February 17th at 12.30pm and will be broadcast live Monday to Thursday.
