BBC News at One has started broadcasting from Salford in Greater Manchester, making it the UK’s first daily network TV news bulletin to be produced from outside London.

The move to Salford was announced last year as part of the BBC’s Across the UK (ATUK) plan, which it said aims to move power and decision-making across the country to better represent all parts of the UK. The regional news will be included in the hour-long BBC News at One.

The programme has been extended to one hour. The BBC said this would give viewers a more comprehensive view of the biggest stories of the day with greater depth, context and analysis. In addition to the main news agenda, the production team will work with BBC Breakfast to feature more human interest stories from around the UK.

It is sharing the new Salford News at One studio with BBC Breakfast.

Richard Frediani, Editor of BBC Breakfast and BBC News at One, said: “I’m delighted to bring the News at One to Salford, where it will join forces with the brilliant BBC Breakfast team to create the first major weekday TV news bulletin to be produced and broadcast from outside London.”

John McAndrew, Director of News Programmes, added: “Moving the News at One to Salford to join BBC Breakfast delivers on our commitments to provide a news service that serves and reflects all communities across the UK, and support local talent and creative economies beyond London.”
