BBC News Special - BBC World News America - Netflix

BBC World News America is a British/American current affairs news program produced by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC)'s BBC News division, which premiered on October 1, 2007. Produced out of the BBC's Washington, D.C. bureau, Katty Kay – who originally appeared on the program through her role as a Washington-based correspondent for BBC News – has served as the main presenter since 2011, replacing original co-anchor Matt Frei. The program is broadcast worldwide on BBC World News and, through an agreement with Los Angeles public independent station KCET, is also syndicated to PBS member stations and select non-commercial educational independent stations throughout the United States. From its debut until 25 March 2011, the program originally maintained a one-hour format, airing as a simulcast on BBC America in the United States and BBC World internationally, with the first half-hour (on tape delay) being shown overnights on the BBC News Channel in the U.K. The program was reduced to a half-hour broadcast on 28 March 2011, and was removed from BBC America. On 31 October 2016, the program returned to the BBC News Channel after a five-year absence, and currently airs on the channel at 21:30 GMT but has since rarely been on air from November 2016 until today. From 11 June 2018 every Monday — Thursday (only when BST is in effect), the program is now only airing the first half hour edition for viewers around the world (except for North and South America where the full hour edition is being broadcast). The 1 hour Friday edition (BST) is still broadcast around the world (including North and South America).
