 30 years of Newsround


Newsround Extra was launched - the longer documentary series which is still going today.

The first two editions looked at Rollermania - the rise of the Bay City Rollers - and children in Bangladesh, which won a British Academy award for best children’s programme.

According to an article in the Radio Times on 6 September, Newsround was by now picking up 5.5m children - 55% of all 5 to 7-year-olds.

It also quoted Alan Protheroe, deputy editor of BBC TV News, as saying: “What delighted us was the way it quickly became clear they were going to carry real news.”
