Gmt (tv programme)

The meaning of «gmt (tv programme)»

GMT was a news programme that aired weekdays on BBC World News between 1 February 2010 and 1 November 2019. The programme's main presenters were Lucy Hockings and Stephen Sackur, rotated depending on the edition because (as of 2016[update], original presenter George Alagiah was on leave from his anchor duties on GMT), with Tim Willcox serving as a primary relief presenter.

Each programme began with the presenter providing an in-depth lead story, giving the time in that part of the world; the program also featured other reports of moderate length focusing on political, social, health and human rights issues, business and sport news, as well as a brief summary of other news headlines from around the world (however, the programme does not emphasize 'headlines' from BBC World News). Its title apparently refers to Greenwich Mean Time, as the programme commences at 12:00 GMT.

GMT aired three times a day (09:00-09:30 GMT, 11:00-11:30 GMT and 12:00-13:00 GMT) each Monday through Friday on BBC World News. The programme acted as a morning programme for North America and South America, a daytime/afternoon programme for Europe, Middle East and Africa, an evening programme for Asia, and a late night/early morning programme for Australia and Oceania. The programme featured analysis and discussion of the top news stories of the day and also previewed the exclusive reports, correspondent feature films and interviews planned on BBC World News programme BBC World News America at 00:00 GMT later that day. In the United States, the first half-hour of the 12:00 GMT segment of the program was also syndicated to PBS member stations and select non-commercial educational independent stations through a distribution agreement between BBC World News and Los Angeles public independent KCET.

From 6 September 2010, a 27-minute segment was shown on BBC Two in the UK on Mondays and Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 12:30 GMT, replacing Working Lunch.[1] Originally an edition of World Business Report was shown at 12:40 GMT, though this was changed for BBC Two viewers to feature a four-minute-long business update. There was no Wednesday edition during Parliament, because of a 90-minute-long edition of The Daily Politics to cover Prime Ministers Questions. The BBC Two simulcast was ended at the end of 2011, and was replaced in 2012 by an extended edition of The Daily Politics. An edition of BBC World News was shown instead on BBC Two at 11:30, this was replaced in 2015 with BBC Newsroom Live
