What program can listeners depend on to cover everything from the growth of democracy to the threat of terrorism, from invasions and cataclysmic natural disasters to inspiring humanitarian triumphs? Newshour, the BBC's flagship news program that specializes in bringing listeners not only the facts but also the in-depth analysis and commentary behind the headlines. Launched in 1988, Newshour broke new ground for BBC World Service. The idea was to provide world news headlines in a global context and broadcast the voices of those making the news. Today, it presents essential listening for people who want a fresh and clear perspective of stories from across the globe. It is packed with newscasts, interviews, and analysis from the BBC's most experienced correspondents. Newshour treats its audiences to a host of veteran BBC journalists, including Owen Bennett-Jones, Claire Bolderson, Alex Brodie, Lyse Doucet, Robin Lustig, Julian Marshall, and Judy Swallow.
