This website is dedicated to the history of one of television’s most iconic news bulletins.
From its launch in 1967, News at Ten set the standard for British television news, with its winning combination of in-depth, analytical news coverage and populist stories.
On this site, we’ll look back at the history of the programme, profiles of the presenters, and how the bulletin has looked down the years.
