The BBC News at Ten (also known as the BBC Ten O'Clock News or more commonly, the Ten O'Clock News) is the flagship evening news programme for British television channel BBC One and the BBC News channel. It is presented by Huw Edwards, and deputised by Fiona Bruce. It is the final comprehensive news programme of the day on BBC One. The programme was controversially moved from 9:00pm on 16 October 2000.
It is broadcast Monday to Sunday at 10:00pm. It features twenty-five minutes of British national and international news, with an emphasis on the latter. On weekdays, it incorporates around seven minutes of news from the BBC regions around the country at approx 10:25pm to 10:30pm, which is then followed by a national weather forecast. During the first three months of its revival, ITV News at Ten averaged 2.2 million viewers compared with an average of 4.8 million viewers watching the BBC bulletin over the same period.
The BBC News at Ten is currently the most watched news programme in Britain, averaging 4.9 million viewers each night.
The programme was launched on 16 October 2000, replacing the former BBC Nine O'Clock News, which had been on the air since 14 September 1970. Its launch presenters were Michael Buerk and Peter Sissons.
Michael Buerk & Peter Sissons left the BBC Ten O'Clock News in 19 January 2003 to make way for presenters Huw Edwards and Fiona Bruce. To mark this presenter reshuffle, on Monday 20 January 2003 as Huw Edwards and Fiona Bruce took over, the bulletin and the rest of BBC One news bulletins were relaunched with a new studio.
Since 5 February 2006, the bulletin has been simulcast on BBC News channel as part of the BBC Ten O'Clock News Hour. This consists of the BBC One bulletin for the first half hour, with the second half coming from the News channel studio and presented by Clive Myrie Monday-Thursday and Martine Croxall Friday-Sunday. It includes a paper, sport and business review.
On 21 April 2008 the programme, along with the rest of BBC News underwent a graphical refresh and moved into a refurbished studio (N6). It also changed name to the BBC News at Ten.
BBC News at Ten has been named 'News Programme of the Year' by the Royal Television Society on numerous occasions, most recently in 2005, 2009 and again in 2010.
Out of Studio 
As well as presenting from the studio, the main presenters are called upon to present on location when major stories break. For example Huw Edwards reported live from Washington for the 2008 US Presidential Elections and has presented live from Basra at the withdrawal ceremony. He also regularly presented from Westminster. George Alagiah presented from L'Aquila in April 2009, Haiti in 2010 and from Egypt in 2011.
