BBC News UK & Ireland

British Broadcasting Corporation News (BBC News) is a 24×7 rolling News house based in United Kingdom. Initially launched as BBC News 24 in November of 1997 eventually became the very first to challenge the earlier established (1989) sky news. The state of art resources and eminent staff and crew has since then never stopped and left no stone unturned to set a hallmark in the race of news and reporting and still aiming for what is missing. The glorious beginning made in 1997 finally brought home the award of News Channel of the Year (2006) (Royal Society Television Journalism Awards) for the first time since the foundation of the television. The same award (RTS) was once again a reward to BBC in 2009 for being the best of the lot.
