Newsround: 1997-2002

Newsround received a new look on 1 September 1997 – for the first time introducing the stylised ‘nr’ in its titles. Titles were revised in November 1999, altering the theme music and also removing the headlines from the titles, replacing them instead with a generic voiceover whilst the day’s date was being shown.  During this era, in January 2001, Newsround was moved from its usual 5pm slot to 5.25pm – becoming the final programme shown on the main BBC1 CBBC segment.

Captures on this page are from 2001.
