About GMT with George Alagiah

George Alagiah
George Alagiah joined the BBC in 1989

It is midday in London, evening in the Asia Pacific region and breakfast on the east coast of America. George Alagiah brings together the latest news developments from across the globe, with updates on business and sport.

GMT has the news you need to know at the start or end of your day but it also takes the time to analyse how the day's latest developments may affect your world.

George Alagiah was one of the BBC's most successful foreign correspondents. He has the contacts to spot the story that could become the next big global event, giving his audiences an insight long before other networks have even registered the change.

He uses his experience to explain why the top stories matter to a global audience.

As well as previewing the top stories coming up and guiding the audience on what to watch out for, at its heart GMT is a news programme. So there will always be a drive to bring you the latest breaking news story and we will always go to live events to update developing stories.

The programme will also give American audiences a preview of coverage planned on BBC America's World News America programme later in the day with exclusive reports, correspondent feature films and newsmaker interviews.

Audiences will also be able to interact with George and the GMT team via a programme website and a BBC World News Facebook page.

GMT with George Alagiah is broadcast weekdays at 1200 and 1230 GMT on BBC World News channel. Find out more information about regional broadcast times here.
