The BBC Nine O’Clock News was the flagship BBC News programme launched on 14 September 1970, which ran until 15 October 2000, when it was controversially moved to 10pm.
Starting in 1981, the BBC gave a common theme to its main news bulletins with new electronic titles.
The Nine O'Clock News received a makeover on the 2nd September 1985.
On 31 October 1988, the Nine O'Clock News underwent a major overhaul. Single headed presentation returned to the programme, and a new look title sequence was introduced.
A new look to the Nine O'Clock News was launched on 13 April 1993.
A new look introduced across the whole of BBC News television output in 10 May 1999 meant that, for the first time, all the main bulletins on BBC One had the same look.
