BBC OS

  (Redirected from Outside Source)

BBC OS, formerly Outside Source, is a news programme produced by the BBC; it utilizes social media in the presentation of its stories. The programme is usually presented by Ros Atkins, Karin Giannone, Nuala McGovern, Daniela Ritorto, Philippa Thomas, Christian Fraser or Krupa Padhy on BBC News, BBC World News and BBC World Service. When Ros Atkins is hosting the programme, the programme was called Outside Source with Ros Atkins, presumably due to him being the lead presenter of the programme.

Outside Source replaced a standard edition of BBC World News, which originally was an edition of World News Today. In the UK it replaced the BBC News at Nine along with World News Today on Friday and weekends.[1]

According to the BBC: "Outside Source aims to open up the news process, enabling people to discover the latest on the stories that matter to them. An hour-long World Service Radio show is the first element of the pan-Global News format to be brought to air."[2]

The programme was launched on BBC World Service on 28 October 2013; and on BBC World News on 17 February 2014. It began being broadcast in the UK on 1 June 2015, though it has been broadcast during major stories in the past. In March 2017 the radio programme was renamed BBC OS. In 2017, the radio programme was moved to 16:00GMT to go out at the same time as the TV version. But in July, this was changed to 19:00GMT to allow an edition of World News Today to be broadcast at 19:00 UK Time.
