BBC News At Six

The BBC News at Six is the evening news programme broadcast each night on British television channel BBC One and the BBC News channel at 18:00. For a long period the News at Six was the most watched news programme in the UK but since 2006 it has been over taken by the BBC News at Ten. On average it pulls in 4 million viewers.

George Alagiah is currently the main presenter, presenting Monday to Thursday, while Fiona Bruce is its Friday presenter. Other BBC News presenters, including Sophie Raworth, Mishal Husain and Sian Williams also appear.

In late 2007 the length of the programme was shortened from 30 minutes to 28 minutes to allow for a news summary being shown on BBC 1 at 7:58pm.
