Ten on 24

BBC News 24 is changing its schedules in order to simulcast the Ten O'Clock News. Simulcasting starts from Monday, January 30, but the rolling news channel will retain the ability to break away from the BBC ONE bulletin in the event of breaking news.

"One of the main objectives of the channel is to showcase the best of BBC journalism and at the moment the Ten O'Clock News is a fantastic example of that", said Kevin Bakhurst, controller of News 24.

"At that time of night you get very few big breaking stories where you don't want to be stuck in a bulletin. But of course we will still have the ability to roll."

As part of the change, the World Business Report, which is currently broadcast on News 24 between 1030 and 11pm, will be moved to 1230am. In its place will be a new extended sports bulletin, newspaper review and lookahead to the next day's news agenda.

Mr Bakhurst said there were no immediate plans to simulcast the One and Six O'Clock News bulletins on News 24 as they were broadcast on BBC ONE at a time when there is more breaking news.

We are not afraid
