The World Today was the first programme shown on the television version of the BBC World Service in 1995. Upon the launch of BBC News 24, the programme became simulcast for UK viewers during its first hour, between 0500 and 0600 GMT/BST. The World Today was rebranded simply as ‘BBC World News’ when the BBC rebranded all news output on 21 April 2008.
